Epicor Expanding UK Channel Partner Programme into New Markets

Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organisations, today announced Proximity as its first UK Gold Software Partner for the Epicor Tropos process manufacturing system.  Proximity has over 40 experts that develop, deliver and maintain solutions and applications for companies in the logistics, process manufacturing, retail and finance sectors, specialising in food and beverage for enterprise resource planning software.

Epicor is expanding its UK channel programme and the appointment of Proximity is the first step in this process, which will see Epicor continue to add value to its business model and expand into complementary markets.  Companies in the process manufacturing market, wanting to improve the efficiency of their business through technology and drive out operational costs, will benefit hugely from a combination of the strong software functionality offered by Epicor Tropos and the sector expertise of Proximity.

“The food and beverage sector is growing, and when we looked at the market we really liked what Epicor had to offer the sector in terms of architecture, usability and features,” said Rob Jackson, sales and marketing director at Proximity.  “We have decades of experience building solutions to meet the stringent needs of the process manufacturing sector, and there is a lot of opportunity in the food and beverage sector right now.  As a new Epicor Gold Partner, we believe Epicor Tropos is a solution that serves the needs of customers in the industry very well, and can make a real difference to their businesses.” 

“It is critical to us that the partners we select become successful -- we understand that this includes achieving a good return on their investment within a reasonable timeframe,” said Steve Winder, regional vice president, UK and Ireland for Epicor Software Corporation.  “We therefore invest an increasing amount of time and resources with partners that have the right attitude and aspirations for success, working closely with them as an extended sales force to achieve that goal.”

Whether in the food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, or cosmetics industries, Epicor Tropos is designed to meet specific industry challenges.  With built-in niche application tools for industries such as distilleries and cheese-making, and the flexible Epicor BPM business process management engine, customers get flexible, practical, and automated capabilities that enable them and their supply chain to connect more effectively and efficiently.
