Epicor Software Corporation announced that it has completed its acquisition of Solarsoft Business Systems.
“This acquisition strengthens our leadership in the manufacturing and distribution segments worldwide,” said Epicor CEO and president Pervez Qureshi. “The addition of Solarsoft extends our innovative software offerings to a broader range of customers and industries—from automotive parts to packaging to life sciences, from food and beverage to electrical components to lumber and building materials. These solutions, which enable customers to monitor business and boost operating efficiency, are well aligned to Epicor offerings. We are pleased to have completed this acquisition slightly ahead of schedule and excited to begin the process of integrating Solarsoft with Epicor.”
The acquisition of Solarsoft extends Epicor’s position as a provider of complete end-to-end enterprise business solutions for discrete manufacturing and distribution and wholesale management solutions in key vertical industries including lumber and building materials, automotive, and print and packaging.
“Despite the challenging economic environment, particularly in Europe, we believe our strong performance in fiscal 2012 demonstrates that our product offerings continue to gain market share,” said Qureshi. “We continue to expand the reach of our enterprise business solutions for manufacturers, distributors, retailers and service organizations globally, selling into more markets than ever before, and as a result sales pipelines are strong.”
