Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced that Speed House Group of Companies has chosen Epicor ERP, a global enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, to enhance operational efficiency, scalability, and customer satisfaction. Valued Epicor partner Knowledge Web Consultancy will work with Speed House’s stakeholders to bring the full value of the Epicor commerce platform to the company and its employees.

Speed House has been providing quality manufacturing products to the regional construction industry since the early 1970s, expanding from 50 employees to more than 1,200. From its home base in Ajman, United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Group has spread across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, to serve customers in Australia, UK, India, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Lebanon. The Speed House Group now encompasses nine companies and exports to more than 20 countries.

“In this modern era, digital transformation is inevitable if we want to maintain the high standards that our customers have come to expect from us,” said Saymaad Mansoor, ERP project manager, Speed House Group. “We committed ourselves to a comprehensive overhaul, including an upgrade from our existing ERP, HRMS and other core applications, to a next-gen, cloud-ready ERP solution.” 

Speed House’s stakeholders were keen to increase transparency, responsiveness, and traceability in their processes, as well as improve on lead times. The management team also sought to establish a foundation to enhance product quality and improve customer satisfaction. Speed House’s procurement team scoured the market for a scalable ERP platform that would give the best possible fit for the company’s ambitions.

“Our legacy ERP solution’s data models were just not designed to handle a high volume of information in a real-time environment,” said Mansoor. “Redundant information was saved and stored by different divisions, and incompatible part codes from different applications meant stock-taking was a tedious task. The system was also not designed for a multi-company environment.”

After a year-long procurement process, which evaluated several vendors and included a proof-of-concept run, Speed House selected Epicor ERP.

“While its core functionality covered most of our important business processes, it was the modular approach and flexibility in customisation that set Epicor ERP apart,” Mansoor explained. “Epicor was also the best fit for our manufacturing requirements, and the software has scalability options that will empower us in our pursuit of becoming the leading manufacturing company in the region.”

Knowledge Web Consultancy (KWC) was chosen by Speed House for its proven record of Epicor implementations with manufacturers. Knowledge Web will assist two of Speed House Group's companies with implementation in phase one, covering an estimated 30 users and expected to last six months. Subsequent phases are intended to cover another six companies. Epicor ERP modules to be deployed by Speed House include Supplier Relationship Management, Advanced Planning and Scheduling, and Customer Relationship Management.

“We expect to improve productivity and reduce decision-making time thanks to the effective transfer of information,” said Mansoor, of the projected benefits of implementing Epicor ERP. “We believe that the new software will give us a competitive edge on a regional level.”

As part of its ambitions to compete on the international stage, Speed House is exploring further cloud solutions from Epicor, including Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

“The Middle East and North Africa construction industry is currently a competitive hot zone for the entire supply chain,” said Amel Gardner, regional vice president – Middle East, Africa & India (MEAI), Epicor Software. “Companies that want to stay ahead of the pack know this is the time not just for optimisation, but for continuous improvement. Finding a flexible, tailored ERP platform that supports growth and is easy to deploy, integrate, use and maintain is the cornerstone of any such initiative. Epicor ERP is designed specifically to address these requirements and we are excited to help Speed House reap the benefits of the platform and be able to accelerate its growth ambitions as a result.”
