Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, has announced its partnership with Orient Technologies, a leading SI and an IT Premier Solution Provider.
The new partnership is a part of an on-going global channel expansion strategy that is gaining momentum across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. As a part of this strategy, the company will continue to work on expanding the channel footprint in India through an industry-specific approach and recruit partners who have specialised domain knowledge in sectors such as manufacturing. Epicor plans to recruit 30 partners in India over the next two years.
“In EMEA, we have already recruited over 25 new partners so far — four of these are from India and we are looking at increasing this number exponentially,” says Anish Kanaran, Channel Director for Epicor in the Middle East, Africa and India. “Expanding the partner program allows us to deliver enhanced solutions. We invest heavily in making sure our partners have strong technical expertise, in-depth knowledge and a capable team. It’s also essential that our global solutions fit their products and services line-up, making the relationship an ideal match and creating a win-win situation for our customers.”
As an Epicor channel partner Orient Technologies will offer the next-generation Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution in India. It joins a list of new Epicor partners such as Daksha, Atna and RheinBrucke.
“We are confident that our partnership with Epicor will add value to our service offering and benefit our clients,” informs Satish Gaonkar, CEO for Orient Technologies India Pvt Ltd. “Our core focus aligns perfectly with the Epicor next-generation solutions and we believe that their increased focus on the Indian market brings much-awaited variety and competitiveness for the midmarket ERP segment.”
Kanaran concludes, “At Epicor we realise the potential of India. It is a key market for us and a clear focus area for the next five years. Our vision for India is long term and as we move ahead we will create a strong ecosystem that can support and inspire users across the continent.”
