Automobile Dealer Moves to Next Generation Epicor ERP

DUBLIN, Calif. and DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, February 02, 2014

Upgrade to New Solution to Bring Competitive Advantage in Fast Growing Sector

Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Omeir Bin Youssef & Sons, an authorized Peugeot dealer in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, is moving to the latest version of the next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP. Omeir Bin Youssef & Sons LLC has been using an older version of Epicor for over 10 years.

The move was prompted by the company's desire to benefit from the functional improvements in the new release focused on cost reduction, process improvement, and customer responsiveness in order to support its own expansion plans. The upgraded solution is expected to enhance the organization's operational efficiency, thereby increasing its competitiveness in the UAE's fast growing automobile industry.

The system upgrade will be implemented by Index Infotech, a member of the Epicor Partner Network in the UAE. Index Infotech specializes in software solutions and provides consulting services that cover project management, consulting, and outsourcing.

The latest version of Epicor ERP contains many features and improvements designed to further improve reliability, performance and ease of use. For example, it includes replenishment workbench functionality designed to meet the needs of the supply chain and distribution processes.

“The Epicor Enterprise suite has been working quite well at our organization for over 10 years, ensuring seamless operations and customer experience,” said Godfrey Alemao, director of finance for Omeir Bin Youssef & Sons LLC. “But, given that customers today are empowered by technology and we face aggressive competition in the automotive industry, we felt the time is appropriate to adopt the latest version with its technical enhancements. It is a calculated move towards boosting our operational efficiency without inconveniencing our employees, who are very comfortable with the existing Epicor software. We believe that the later version will also give us greater flexibility in tailoring features to our own business processes.”

“Omeir Bin Youssef & Sons LLC has been committed to its Epicor solution for almost a decade now,” said Jawad Squalli, regional vice president for Epicor in Middle East, Africa and India. “This level of customer loyalty is what we consider a true mark of a good product and it affirms confidence in our Automobile Dealer Moves to Next Generation Epicor ERP Page 2 offerings. Our partner has played a key role in providing the high standards of services to our customer, and has helped us build a solid reputation in the Middle East market.”

Established in 1956, Omeir Bin Youssef & Sons LLC is a highly respected automobile dealer for passenger and commercial vehicles in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. It is also an authorized dealer of Peugeot's range of sports car, SUVs and LCVs.
