Do it Best and Epicor Expand Partnership to Drive Sales
Do it Best, a leading international home improvement cooperative, announced today that Epicor, a global leader of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, has been named its point-of-sale (POS) vendor of choice for its member-owners.
This new partnership is central to the strategic ecommerce initiative Do it Best recently unveiled to enhance its members’ ability to meet their customers wherever they are in their shopping journey – online, in-store, or on-the-go.
By simplifying their IT infrastructure with Epicor industry cloud platforms for hardware and LBM businesses – including Epicor Propello, Epicor Eagle, and Epicor BisTrack – Do it Best members will benefit from industry-leading functionality and business intelligence to offer their customers more choices, drive more traffic and increase store sales, and strengthen inventory and supply chain management.
“At Do it Best, we are always working to help our members exceed their customers’ expectations and deliver a consistently superior level of service,” said Do it Best President and CEO Dan Starr. “With our vendor of choice recognition of Epicor technologies, we’re delivering advanced ecommerce and supply chain management capabilities to position our members to be the first and best choice for their customers.”
The agreement includes dedicated Epicor and Do it Best teams committed to supporting members with streamlined POS technology integration, shortened development time, and continuous feature updates via the cloud. Members will gain greater data-driven insights to understand what products are selling, what products they should be selling, and insights to optimize inventory management.
“Epicor and Do it Best believe the local, independent owner is foundational to our communities,” said Epicor CEO Steve Murphy. “Epicor is thrilled to expand our partnership with Do it Best. Our portfolio of industry-specific technologies will help their members grow and streamline operations, empowering them to connect with us to deliver a world of better business.”
The expanded partnership builds on a long-term relationship between Epicor and Do it Best. Epicor’s technology and vision, along with deep industry expertise and a track record for superior service and support, helped secure the decision by Do it Best to solidify the partnership.
