Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organisations, has announced that following a competitive pitch against key industry players, Broxap has chosen the next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP, to streamline processes and allow better transparency of business data to support growth.
Founded in 1946, family owned Broxap specialises in the design and manufacture of high specification street furniture including bollards, seating, litter bins, cycle parking, shelters, canopies and covered walkways. The company also designs, manufactures and installs sports, and playground equipment.
“The company is well positioned for strong growth in future years and we are aiming to supply products to every city, town and village throughout the UK,” commented Tracy Cooper, systems manager of Broxap. “Working with numerous local councils and private companies throughout the UK, we have managed projects including external furniture and a large run of fabric tensile canopies as part the recent regeneration of the King’s Lynn Transport Interchange. We hope to expand upon these types of projects in the coming years.”
To allow for this level of growth, Broxap required a business solution which would streamline processes and widen access to its business data. The solution provided by Epicor will support Broxap’s shop floor data collection, material requirements planning, production line and sales order processing as well as aftersales, all within one system.
Cooper continued: “Functionality is key for us. We needed an ERP solution that has the ability to deal with all the information and variations we have, allowing us to continue growth within the UK market. We expect to see significant savings as a result of this streamlined approach and are really positive about the efficiencies this will offer us across the business.”
Steve Winder, regional vice president for Epicor Software in the UK and Ireland explained: “We are really excited to be working with such an innovative brand. Being able to offer Broxap business process capability that it hasn’t previously had gave us an edge over our competitors. We were able to provide a solution that’s specifically developed for their business model and needs. We’re looking forward to working with Broxap through their continued growth.
