Epicor to boost Dubai South operations

DUBAI, June 13, 2017

US-based Epicor Software Corporation said its international partner RheinBrücke has signed an agreement with SmartWorld, a leading smart services provider in the region, to deliver Epicor solutions and services to businesses in Dubai South.

Dubai South, the rebranded Dubai World Central, is an emerging 145 sq km city situated within the emirate of Dubai. Launched as a government of Dubai project in 2006, it will ultimately sustain a population of one million and create 500,000 new jobs.

Netherlands-based RheinBrücke is a leading IT consulting company focused on offering consulting, technology and outsourcing solutions and services, while SmartWorld, a joint venture between Etisalat and Dubai South, is a leading master system integrator and next generation ICT services provider.

The collaboration between Epicor, RheinBrücke and SmartWorld will provide businesses in Dubai South with access to enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to help them better manage their business, automate processes, improve operational efficiency, and set their business on course for growth, said a statement from the company.

As one of the largest Epicor partners in the region, RheinBrücke is partnering with SmartWorld to offer a full range of Epicor solutions and services, including Epicor ERP, Epicor iScala, Epicor HCM, and Epicor Mattec, a choice of deployment on-premises or via the cloud, and industry process models for best practice implementations, it said.

Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman, Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South, said: “We are delighted that RheinBrücke along with Epicor is partnering with SmartWorld to drive value to Dubai South's customers, and we look forward to a successful collaboration that benefits all parties.”

Abdulqader Obaid Ali, CEO, SmartWorld, said: “We want businesses that move into Dubai South to be enabled not just with a digital backbone but also with business applications that are available in the cloud from the moment they move in so that they can focus from the beginning on their core business.”

“RheinBrücke and Epicor are the right partners to enable businesses to realise tremendous business benefits from both on-premises and cloud-based solutions and services,” he said.

“We want to ensure that the businesses that are located in Dubai South can operate within the smartest global value chains, and providing them with access to flexible ERP solutions is central to driving regional and global growth,” he added.

Vetri Selvan, CEO and managing partner, RheinBrücke, said: “We are excited about partnering with SmartWorld to help us deliver outstanding services to businesses in Dubai South and be part of the Dubai Vision 2021.”

“In the build up to the 2020 Expo in Dubai there are more and more manufacturing and logistics businesses moving into the area that are well suited for the type of flexible ERP solutions that Epicor offers,” he said.

“Many of these businesses are still managed by spreadsheet and manual processes so the implementation of an integrated end-to-end solution can help them become more efficient in order to support their growth plans,” he added.

Sabby Gill, executive vice president - international, Epicor Software, said: “Working together with RheinBrücke and SmartWorld to help businesses in Dubai South modernise their operations and grow their businesses will be a truly exciting experience.”

“Dubai South is set to become the key global business hub. It is integral to maintaining Dubai's position among the top international centres for trade and logistics and as a new destination for investment,” he said.

“We are delighted to be able to support companies in the city on their path to successful growth,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
