Leading Meat Company in Mexico Selects Epicor

Carnes Finas San Juan Finds Epicor ERP Offering to Be the Best Suited to the Company's Needs

DUBLIN, CA and MONTERREY, MEXICO--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2013) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Carnes Finas San Juan, a Mexican company with nine stores in the northeast, has selected Epicor as its enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendor, delivering an innovative next-generation business technology platform.

With headquarters in Monterrey and nearly fifty years in the market, Carnes Finas San Juan started in the 1960s under the name of Refrigeraciones San Juan S.A. de C.V. The company's commitment to achieve the highest quality standards led them to overcome numerous market challenges and grow along with their customers' needs. Since 2001, with new infrastructure and registered name -- Empacadora y Distribuidora de Carnes Finas San Juan, S.A. de C.V. -- the company is positioned as one of the most recognized distributors of meat fine cuts and meat products in northeastern Mexico.

As the company grew and business units were created, the ERP system they had proved insufficient; centralized integrated business information became an issue, especially in terms of inventory control and timely capture of information. The company reevaluated their current software system to resolve the issue of integrated information between departments and different business units; a pilot project was launched with a new solution to less than satisfactory results. Carnes Finas San Juan then hired an IT consulting firm to assist them in the evaluation of different ERP vendors.

Before choosing Epicor ERP, Carnes Finas San Juan evaluated several proposals; it was clear in the evaluation process they needed a provider that would resolve point of sale issues and be able to provide local support. Epicor was the best fit with its Epicor ERP offering, and the fact that Epicor has headquarters in the city of Monterrey -- Carnes Finas San Juan felt confident in the fact that Epicor had a local presence to support them. Additionally, the ease of use of the Epicor ERP solution and ability to integrate information from different business units, were key in the selection. Epicor ERP will enable Carnes Finas San Juan to eliminate downtime and gain access to accurate, real-time business data; which will ultimately assist top management in the decision making process and result more efficient business operations.

Carnes Finas San Juan is excited about the benefits the new ERP solution will bring to its employees both in the administration area of the business and at the point of service. Everyone in the company is ready for the new challenge, and are confident in having the support of a global leader in business software solutions, Epicor.

Carnes Finas San Juan is in the process of implementing Epicor ERP, with plans to open a new store during 2013. Following the store launch, Epicor ERP will be deployed to all the company's business units.
