Epicor Announces Leading South East Asian Retailer Selects Epicor|CRS Retail Suite, ERP Applications

Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ:EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions for the midmarket and divisions of Global 1000 companies, today announced one of the biggest apparel retailers in South East Asia has selected EpicorCRS’ retail store management solutions to provide enhanced operational visibility and efficiency.

In addition to EpicorCRS’ Microsoft .NET-based Point-of-Sale (POS), the retailer plans to implement CRS Inventory Management, and the CRS Promotional Events and Retail Mail applications within its 90 store locations. Additionally, plans call for the deployment of the CRS Merchandising application, which includes the CRS Allocations™, CRS Transfers Plus™, and CRS Retail DataWarehouse™ modules, along with Epicor’s Warehouse Management application. They have also purchased the third party EDI application from TIE Global, which Epicor resells, as well as Epicor’s advanced planning solution. All new functionality will be integrated with Epicor iScala financial management applications, which the retailer has already deployed.

“We are pleased to have completed negotiations on this retail contract, which is the second of the two deals we had expected to close in our 2007 second quarter ended June 30, 2007, as mentioned in our earnings announcement last month,” said George Klaus, chairman and CEO of Epicor. “This deal is very significant for Epicor; it is the first retail CRS system to be selected by a retail organization headquartered outside the U.S., and is representative of the benefits and synergies of our acquisition of CRS Retail Systems in late 2005. As a result of this acquisition, we are now able to bring the value of the EpicorCRS retail suite to customers outside the U.S. due to our international presence and global support. Additionally, this customer’s selection of solutions from across our integrated product lines demonstrates Epicor’s ability to support customers’ needs from point-of-sale to back office.”
