ERP Upgrade to Support Revenue Growth, Operating Efficiency, and Profitability Initiatives

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - October 11, 2016) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR) has chosen the award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP, deployed in the cloud, to consolidate business systems, automate processes, and provide real-time performance to support its business growth and profitability objectives.

Xplore Technologies Corp., maker of the most rugged tablets on Earth, has been in the business of developing, integrating, and marketing industrial grade rugged tablets for customers in several sectors for more than 20 years. The company is headquartered in Austin, Texas.

"We needed a system that could support both our growth trajectory and increased focus on maximizing profitability through operational efficiency," said Tom Wilkinson, chief financial officer, Xplore Technologies Corp. "To achieve this, we were looking for a single, integrated solution that could provide processing of transactions and accurate, timely financial reporting for improved decision making. We found Epicor Cloud ERP to be the right fit for us."

Streamlining Data through the Cloud for Business Growth
After acquiring the assets of another company, Xplore Technologies found itself needing to consolidate disparate ERP systems that didn't necessarily always talk to one another. Xplore also needed of a new set of technologies capable of supporting its global business growth strategies. The company chose Epicor ERP, which is set to enable faster business growth by establishing streamlined workflows and reducing redundant data entry. Additionally, Xplore Technologies leadership concluded a cloud deployment was a cost-effective option that would make it easier for users in different locations to collaborate seamlessly.

"By relying on Epicor to provide easy-to-access business data across multiple offices, companies like Xplore Technologies are able to leverage real-time information to power their business."

"We need data at hand for executive dashboards and systems that will empower our people to self-serve, as well as deliver real-time information to support pricing for large deals while at the same time supporting our aggressive operating efficiency targets," Wilkinson continued. "We are looking forward to having access to better information in a more expedient fashion to support our business objectives."
