Florida-based paint and hardware retailer to implement new business management technology to foster business growth and improve Ace Hardware integration

500_hessler-paint-black.pngEpicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Hessler Paint and Decorating Centers has selected the Epicor Eagle N Series® software as its new retail business management solution to efficiently manage multi-location business, grow revenue, and better serve customers.

Hessler Paint and Decorating Center opened for business in 1994. The retailer, which is a Benjamin Moore paint store and new Ace Hardware dealer, has grown exponentially since launching its first store. Hessler Paint currently has four locations across Florida and is forecasting more growth in the near future.

To establish a secure business for next-generation family members, Hessler Paint is expanding the headquaters location in Delray Beach with a full Ace Hardware store, an addition to its paint retail store, and Epicor Eagle N Series software.

  • “We are a service-oriented business and do just about anything to satisfy our customers. We chose the Eagle N Series solution to help us continue, and expand upon, this foundational aspect of our business.”
  • - Jaime Hessler, General manager, Hessler Paint and Decorating Centers

A solution to maximize profitability and improve decision-making

Once deployed, Eagle N Series software will enable Hessler Paint to analyze, forecast, order, and price inventory more accurately and efficiently, while helping to maximize profitability and improve decision-making. “As a new Ace Hardware retailer, it is crucial for us to move to a software system that has the ability to seamlessly manage our reconfigured inventory, as well as a provider that has a strong partnership with Ace,” said Hessler. “We hope to better align with Ace and gain a deeper vision into our business through the partnership with Epicor. For example, the analytics within Eagle N Series software will show us what inventory is moving, what's not moving, and where we’re making or losing money. We know that Epicor will provide the right tools to make this business change a success.”

“Additionally, our new business model with Ace Hardware and Eagle N Series software will help us to monitor our margins more closely,” continued Hessler. “We hope to see our average margins go up by 10 percent after implementation.”

“Leading independent retailers are leveraging Eagle N Series software to manage inventory allowing for a competitive advantage and for a maximum return on investment, while helping to ensure the best customer service,” said Bill Wilson, senior vice president, product development, Epicor Software. “Hessler Paint’s attention to this business aspect will help them deliver on their mission of providing a positive in-store experience to its customers.”
