Epicor announced as leading point of sale vendor to Softgoods Retailers

Epicor Software Corporation announced today that it has been named the leading vendor of Point-of-Sale (POS) software to the top North American Softgoods Retailers in a recent study published by global research and advisory firm IHL Group for the fourth consecutive year

Commenting on Epicor’s prominence in the POS softgoods retail space, IHL analyst Jerry Sheldon said, “Epicor again emerged as the leader in our study ranking first in every category.  Served by a strong company reputation, extensive partner network and impressive customer list, Epicor continues to display leadership in bringing software solutions to Tier 1 through Tier 4 general merchandise and specialty retailers.”

The study also features an overview of the economic, technology and consumer trends affecting retailers today. Some of the key business challenges softgoods retailers seek to offset via the use of POS technology are price pressures, rising labor costs, lack of available workforce and workforce loyalty, as well as customer loyalty and empowering customers to make purchases via multiple channels.

“POS software is the most mission-critical system a retailer deploys—at the heart of their operations, enhancing the customer’s shopping experience, increasing employee productivity, and driving store sales—as such, we are extremely honored to be recognised as the POS leader in the softgoods retail space,” said David Henning, vice president and general manager for Epicor Retail. “We are proud to continue our long history of providing softgoods retailers with the right solutions to help them achieve their business objectives.”
