Austin, TX May 02, 2018

Electrical distributor leverages Epicor solution to enter ecommerce market

Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Warshauer Electric Supply has chosen the award-winning Epicor Eclipse software as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to integrate an ecommerce platform and become more relevant.

Warshauer Electric Supply, American owned and operated since 1954, has over 60 years of experience as an electrical wholesaler and is currently one of the largest independently owned electrical distributors in the country. They are a full-service supply house offering expertise in interior and exterior lighting design, solar energy systems, home automation and security, shading solutions, generator sales/rentals and service, commercial lighting, switchgear, and lighting energy audits.

A growth in revenue and increase in the number of locations prompted Warshauer Electric Supply to look for a more robust system that would allow for the integration of ecommerce. Moving to the Eclipse next-generation software will allow the company to become more competitive and respond to their customers’ needs immediately.

  • "In today’s world, it’s a strategic disadvantage not to update. Distributors can’t get into the ecommerce world without upgrading their ERP system, and ecommerce is a staple every distributor needs. It’s imperative to our future to make this investment in the Epicor Eclipse system."
  • - Jim Warshauer, President, Warshauer Electric Supply

Increasing efficiency with easy to use software

Warshauer Electric Supply was on an outdated system for the last 20 years that lacked many tools imperative to today’s digital distributor. Implementing the Eclipse solution will provide the company with an easy transition into making all facets of the business more productive and efficient. The Wireless Warehouse software will cut costs and better control inventory, and Epicor Commerce (EC) will provide a seamless integration into ecommerce that will allow Warshauer Electric Supply to grow faster and stay competitive. “The Eclipse system is a great fit for our business”, added Warshauer. “Every piece of information should be at our fingertips instead of looking at a filing cabinet for information. Each facet of our business will be leaps and bounds above where we are today.”

“The Epicor Eclipse solution is a proven success for distributors of all sizes, and the software is becoming more powerful and valuable to companies that need a one-stop shop for their services,” said Mark Jensen, director of product management, Epicor. “Eclipse software offers a combination of features and functionality that can accurately streamline processes. Pricing, inventory management, and even quoting becomes automated—reducing time consumption.”
