IRVINE, CA, Sep 13, 2010 – Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC) today announced that Swedish manufacturer HT Svarv has selected the Epicor 9 next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to support its advanced manufacturing processes. HT Svarv’s production operations continually face increases in demand as a major global supplier to most of the large businesses within the Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) industry, which led them to select a modern ERP solution to streamline operations.
“Our current ERP system no longer meets our needs, because of our growing requirement to keep all product and manufacturing data in one single system,” said Mikael Nilsson, managing director for HT Svarv. “We want a system where all functionality is integrated so that we don’t have to add other products, or spread information around various information hubs. We chose Epicor for its technically advanced platform, end-to-end management of processes and data and the fact that it was an excellent fit for our type of business as well.”
HT Svarv needed the system to support stringent quality assurance and lean manufacturing processes, making Epicor the obvious choice. Epicor’s extensive automotive expertise and experience also played an important role in HT Svarv’s decision.
“Epicor ERP provides HT Svarv all the necessary product handling and manufacturing control in a single system, which will help ensure that operations are more efficient and flexible. Epicor specifically focuses on select industry verticals, such as automotive, which ensures that we can offer customers like HT Svarv all the industry-specific functionality they need in one single solution,” said Stefan Westelius, vice president sales EMEA for Epicor.
