Epicor and Nation’s Best Sports Expand Partnership to Provide Innovative Technology Solutions to Members

Austin, TX February 15, 2018

New partnership to help sporting goods dealers improve operational efficiencies


Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, and Nation’s Best Sports (NBS), a nationwide sporting goods buying group, today announced an expanded partnership which will help sporting goods dealers further improve operational efficiencies and evolve their businesses into an omni-channel model.

NBS offers independent sporting goods retailers a diverse portfolio of buying opportunities in all categories of outdoor sports and general sporting goods. Partnering with Epicor will provide NBS members access to business-enhancing activities such as thought leadership materials, webinars, and referrals to the Epicor Eagle N Series® solution.

  • “NBS has a diverse membership base and because of that we quickly realized that there was no one-size-fits-all point of sale (POS) solution for our members. Many of our members need a robust and scalable POS solution. In looking at several platforms in the market, we felt Epicor was a great fit for our members. The features built into the Eagle N Series platform are a significant benefit to the sporting goods retailer. By partnering with great companies like Epicor, we are helping the independent sporting goods dealer compete in today’s omni-channel retail landscape.”
  • - Bryan Davis, Executive Vice President, Operations, Nation’s Best Sports

“We are excited about the launch of this partnership with Nation’s Best Sports,” said Bill Wilson, senior vice president, product development, Epicor Software. “The independent sporting goods retailer is the grassroots of the sporting goods industry. Through our partnership with NBS, we will help bring an omni-channel business model to predominately brick and mortar specialty retailers—supporting growing businesses with a scalable solution. It is the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
