Texas-Based Garden Center Chain Improves Business Efficiency with New Business Management Technology from Epicor
Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Calloway's Nursery®, an independent Texas-based specialty lawn and garden retailer, has successfully completed its first year running operations on the Epicor Eagle business management system.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, Calloway's operates 19 retail nursery locations in the Dallas Fort Worth and Houston areas. After a careful and competitive evaluation and proposal process, Calloway's selected Epicor Eagle. Calloway's management conducted multiple conversations and site visits with other successful lawn and garden businesses that had chosen to run their retail operations on Epicor Eagle. Facilitating broad participation in the evaluation process, Calloway's held two days of demonstrations and assessments with approximately 40 managers and key employees from various parts of the business.
With the decision to move forward with the Epicor Eagle platform in September 2012, Calloway's set an aggressive implementation timeline to go live on the new system before the critical 2013 spring season. The system was live for the 19 store chain in January 2013, approximately 120 days after order finalization. “We're very pleased with the Epicor Eagle system and the support Epicor provided,” said Dan Reynolds, vice president and CFO for Calloway's. “Epicor provided onsite support in all of our locations, including the corporate office, to assist our employees with the transition and help manage the overall project. With Epicor Eagle, we are getting the information we need to better manage our business and in the long run we're saving money. We look forward to expanding our use of the system and taking advantage of additional capabilities Epicor has to offer.”
“Epicor is pleased to work with Calloway's and understands that the complexities of lawn and garden businesses can only be managed by highly flexible, intuitive solutions,” said Craig McCollum, executive vice president and general manager, retail distribution solutions for Epicor. “Epicor Eagle is a market leader in POS integration, inventory management, and customer engagement--through a powerful loyalty program it's built on a foundation of functionalities that successfully manage the full spectrum of lawn and garden operations.”
Epicor Eagle lawn and garden management software assists independent lawn and garden businesses in managing all parts of their operations-through point of sale, inventory management, financials, purchasing, payroll and marketing. The Epicor solution provides owners and managers of lawn and garden businesses with the tools to cut costs, improve productivity and better serve their customers.
