DUBLIN, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 29, 2012) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, announced today that Glenn's Sporting Goods and Pacesetter Sports, suppliers in a full range of sporting goods products, have selected Epicor® Eagle® for sporting goods retail management to help their organizations provide superior customer service and support, and manage day-to-day business operations.
Glenn's Sporting Goods, in operation since 1970, and Pacesetter Sports, doing business since 1982, are both members of Sports Inc., a sporting goods buying and marketing organization with more than 400 members and over 570 sales locations in 50 states and Canada. Through this membership, independent retailers have the opportunity to take advantage of superior buying and service opportunities in order to remain competitive and prosperous in the demanding sporting goods industry.
"Sporting goods retailers face unique business challenges in today's ever changing retail environment," said Craig McCollum, executive vice president and general manager, retail distribution solutions for Epicor. "Developed from decades of retail experience and customer input, Epicor delivers a full-featured retail business management suite that enables retailers to implement the specialized best practices needed to improve and optimize every aspect of operations for increased efficiency and lasting competitive advantage."
When Glenn's Sporting Goods first opened its doors for business, the goal was to provide the best in athletic footwear and team goods to the Tri-State area. Today, the retailer is one of the largest independently owned sporting goods stores east of the Mississippi. Customer service has always been a top priority for Glenn's Sporting Goods and was a key factor in selection of Epicor sporting goods retail management software -- designed to improve customer order management and point-of-sale (POS) operations, tighten the inventory management processes, and streamline the vendor procurement side of a retailer's business.
"On the retail level, this Epicor solution will create a better customer experience, allowing for the implementation of credit card capability integrated with our point of sale," said Susie Agee of Glenn's Sporting Goods. "The implementation of Epicor as our business management solution will be a great timesaver, specifically in wholesale and managerial operations. The fact that Epicor is able to tailor the software to our specific business needs, with the ability to adapt and evolve as our business grows and changes is huge."
In addition to making sure their businesses run efficiently and effectively, sporting goods retailers and distributors use Epicor retail management software to increase customer loyalty and satisfaction through customer relationship management (CRM) tools and marketing programs that support multiple channels -- in store, mobile store, and eCommerce -- and employ powerful analysis tools.
Pacesetter Sports began as a specialty tennis and running store, that has grown to be one of the largest team sports suppliers in Indiana and Illinois. With a strong foundation and belief in providing exceptional customer service, Pacesetter Sports takes pride in supplying athletes of all ages, sports, and abilities with the finest performance products -- designed to fit each customer's specific need. That is why customer experience was an important consideration in Pacesetter Sports' selection of Epicor sporting goods retail management software, as was the ability to solidify an online presence that would empower their customers to shop the way they want -- in store, online or mobile.
"When Pacesetter Sports was searching for a new system, most software vendors would only send emails and mail information -- Epicor's onsite visits really won us over," said Brent Compton of Pacesetter Sports. "We wanted to provide email invoicing, as well as the opportunity to do mobile point-of-sale, but none of these capabilities were possible with our old system. Epicor was the right software choice for our business needs -- enabling the sophisticated software advancements our business was ready to make."
