Longtime Users of Epicor Ultimate Software Now Targeting Faster Growth With Epicor Vision

Austin, Texas October 31, 2018

Several leading automotive replacement parts distributors are upgrading to Vision solution to increase sales and strengthen bottom-line performance

Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced that several automotive replacement parts distributors are upgrading from legacy Epicor Ultimate business management software to Epicor Vision to achieve faster growth and stronger bottom-line performance. The Epicor Vision solution offers the fit, ease, and growth desired by a full range of parts distributors, including two-step operations as well as those that own and service traditional jobber stores.

Epicor is offering live demonstrations of the Vision solution in the Epicor booth (2238) during this week’s AAPEX Show in Las Vegas.

Epicor Vision is a powerful next-generation software solution for parts distributors targeting increased operational efficiency, stronger sales and margin growth, and exceptional customer satisfaction and loyalty. The software, which can be deployed either on premises or in the cloud, features world-class customer relationship management (CRM) tools, a centralized database, highly advanced price management and inventory capabilities, accounting, integrated telephony, and comprehensive "central services" functionality.

Among the aftermarket businesses that have, or are planning to upgrade from Epicor Ultimate to the Epicor Vision solution are Brake & Equipment Warehouse, Minneapolis; Cee Kay Auto Parts, Moosic, Pa.; Ed Perry Auto Parts, Inman, S.C.; Full Service Auto Parts, now owned by XL Parts, Houston; Pioneer Rim and Wheel, Minneapolis; and XL Parts.

  • “(Vision) is far more user friendly, the cataloging is greatly improved over our previous solution, and there’s the excellent category management system. The Epicor Ultimate platform has served us well over the years, but there are just so many improvements with Vision.”
  • - Pam Rutledge, Vice President, Ed Perry Auto Parts

Rick Huelsman, president of Brake & Equipment Warehouse, cited the Vision solution’s user-friendly interface and overall versatility as keys to increased business efficiency and improved operational control. “As we continue to grow, we hope the Vision solution will give us added flexibility and allow us to work even faster,” he said.

Also important to Vision users is the Epicor product development team’s aggressive, ongoing investment in innovative new features and functionality. “Epicor is as interested in making Vision the best it can be as we are,” said Kelly Connolly, vice president of finance for Tri-States Automotive Warehouse, Marianna, Fla. “When we come up with new business needs, they are very happy to enhance the system to help us continue to grow in the future.”
