The Epicor Retail SaaS solution is designed to help Groupe Yellow enable swift implementation and plug-and-play functionality while reducing dependency on on-site retail IT infrastructure, according to a company press release. The “pay as you go” offering will provide the retailer with access to a variety of Epicor solutions, including: Retail Store, Retail CRM, Retail Merchandising, Retail Warehouse Management, Audit and Operations Management and Retail Business Intelligence.
The retailer also will deploy Epicor Retail Sourcing and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), which is designed to help bring products to market quickly and cost effectively, all while providing tools for increased visibility and productivity across the organization.
“The Epicor Retail SaaS solution offers significant benefits as it removes the need for costly integration among modules, which is time and cost prohibitive,” said Leo Rabinovitch, CIO of Groupe Yellow. “With Epicor Retail, Yellow will have a solid foundation for a seamless flow of information between all aspects of the business. We will be able to make decisions and execute more quickly, buy and distribute more effectively, provide first-class customer service, and build a sustainable competitive advantage against our competition. If we can drive increased conversion of 1% to 2%, this would equate to a tremendous payback.”
