Oregon-Based Retailer On Track to Improve Inventory and Firearms Compliance Management with New Software Technology
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today that Lakeview True Value Hardware has selected its retail business management solution, Epicor Eagle N Series, to increase inventory management accuracy and improve overall business efficiency.
Founded in 2012, Lakeview True Value Hardware is a business that is quickly moving up the retail ranks. The retailer recently expanded from a 3,200 square foot building to 9,500 square feet. With the expansion, Lakeview Hardware was in need of a business management solution that better fit its rate of growth and goals for future development.
“We selected Epicor Eagle N Series as our retail management solution to simplify the business,” said Dan Henderson, owner of Lakeview True Value Hardware. “Over the last few years we have greatly expanded, and with that fell into some challenges specifically with our inventory management. I have no doubt that the Eagle N Series solution and respective applications will help us get back on track and streamline operations. One of our first goals is to get our turns from 1.7 to 2.5; I think we’ll get there in no time with Epicor.”
As a proud True Value® retailer, Lakeview Hardware is focused on providing excellent customer service. “Epicor has a strong partnership with True Value, which was another factor in choosing them. We see Epicor as more than just our technology provider -- they are another partner that will help us keep our high-quality customer service. If it’s easier to do a transaction; if you can look at the information and be confident that what the inventory says is there, is really there, that enables us to serve customers better, which makes our business stronger.”
Cloud-Based Firearms Compliance Solution Fit for Hardware Retailing
Lakeview Hardware has a solid sporting goods department, which features top-of-the-line firearms and ammunition. With firearms being a highly regulated industry and their sales increasing, the retailer wanted to move away from manually tracking firearms sales. “When I heard about the cloud-based Epicor FFL Compliance Manager solution I was thrilled about all the time I would save -- particularly because with firearms you need to be certain that all your information is up-to-date and accurate in case of an audit,” said Henderson. “Before we were managing and tracking our firearms business with Excel, which is very time consuming and not ideal. With FFL Compliance Manager, we’ll be able to reconcile inventory electronically and get customers through the application process quickly. This means less time in the office and more time on the store floor.”
“Epicor solutions for retail business management put power back in the hands of retailers to improve profitability and growth,” said Doug Smith, director, product management and marketing, Epicor Software. “By partnering with Epicor to obtain accurate business information, retailers like Lakeview True Value Hardware can focus on their customers without worrying about managing software.”
