Dubai, July 21, 2007
Epicor Software announced a major expansion into India aligning with two new partners and reinforcing its existing partnership with Bangalore-based Sonata Software.
“We have a strong base in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) markets, and now India will also be a key market for us in our regional growth strategy,” said Basil Daniells, regional sales director for Epicor Middle East, North Africa and India.
“Our growth plan is driven by channel expansion and we have already enhanced our network aligning with two more new partners – Allied Digital in Pune for the Western India markets and Team Computers in Delhi for the North.”
Epicor’s Indian operations are currently overseen from its Dubai office which is also in charge of Pakistan and the Middle East and North Africa markets.
