Epicor Chosen for Ease of Use, Cost-Efficiency and Powerful Manufacturing Capabilities

DUBLIN, CA and EL GOUNA, EGYPT--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2013) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that the Water World Group of Companies has selected to implement the Epicor next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution in its offices in Egypt and the USA. Water World is Egypt's leading water treatment company that specializes in water treatment systems, including technology used to purify and filter potable water.

Taking advantage of the solution's scalability, accessibility and flexibility, Water World has chosen to deploy the financial, logistics and manufacturing modules of Epicor ERP. The solution is being implemented in collaboration with Global Business Solutions (GBS), an Epicor Channel Partner in Egypt. GBS provides high quality and cost effective solutions to organizations looking at standardizing their business management operations.

With more than 60 local implementations of Epicor solutions to different industries and market segments under its belt, it is considered one of the most professional software companies in Egypt.

"The single most important criteria for selecting Epicor was our need for a powerful, proven solution that comprehensively supports manufacturing while still being easy to use," said Islam Fayez, financial controller at Water World. "The favorable cost of the solution was another significant motivator for our choice. The fact that Epicor also offers excellent after-sales support meant that we can rest assured that we will always have the critical data that we need."
