Marwa Marble selects Epicor ERP
Epicor Software, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software, has announced that UAE-based marble and granite supplier, Marwa Marble has chosen Epicor ERP to enable business transformation and support the organisations’ ambitious growth plans.
By completely automating inventory management for over 90,000 square metres stock of stone, Epicor ERP will enable the Marwa Marble team to significantly reduce hours spent on physically inspecting and counting inventory, and avoid human error. Tighter inventory control also means that the organisation will be able to better manage suppliers’ costs and quality, reduce material wastage, and increase frequency and accuracy of stock-takes. This is expected to have a direct positive impact on the company’s bottom line.
Fadi Khoury, chief operating officer at Marwa Marble said, “In our industry, business growth and for that matter, our very viability, hinges on our ability to manage inventory. This is only magnified given our unique business model where, unlike our competitors—that purchase stone based on project needs―we choose to keep vast quantities of marble and granite in stock. As such, it was essential that the solution we selected, had a robust supply chain management (SCM) module. Epicor ERP is widely recognised as the leading ERP platform in our industry, primarily because of its industry-specific functionality and ease of integration and use.”
“Moreover, rather than requiring us to change our business processes to adapt to the solution, Epicor ERP can be easily customised to fit our unique business needs. It is also worth noting that to date, we have received exceptional technical and sales support from Epicor and their local partner, Index Infotech. This is going a long way in ensuring a smooth change management journey, something that is critical to the success of any ERP implementation.”
Working with Index Infotech, Fadi and his team are now in the process of implementing Epicor ERP―specifically modules for SCM and financial management—at the company’s headquarters in Sharjah, UAE.
