Marco Beverage Systems Selects Epicor ERP to Support Global Expansion
Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organisations, today announced that Marco Beverage Systems (Marco) has chosen the next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP, to enhance visibility across its business processes and support its global expansion plan.

Established 35 years ago, Marco specialises in providing hot water delivery systems to coffee and tea brewers in the food and beverage industry. Marco has manufacturing facilities in Dublin, Ireland, and an assembly plant in China. In conjunction with this, the company has also recently opened Marco US in Seattle. This recent global expansion is part of Marco’s ambitious growth plan to develop its export market.

Key to this growth was Marco’s decision to explore the market and look for a new ERP solution. Shane Pender, sales office and service manager for Marco Beverage Systems explains, “We are on an international growth path. With this in mind we needed an ERP solution that will support our plans and provided us with accurate, live data from anywhere in the world. We felt that our previous system was holding us back and was outdated and limited – it really was just an accounting system with some bolt-ons. Epicor really fit our business and aligned with our operations.”

With the support of Aspera Solutions, a member of the Epicor Inspired Partner Network, Epicor ERP was selected over a key competitor as Marco recognised it as the software that was best aligned to its business. It was readily apparent to Marco that Epicor ERP was the most tailored solution for businesses that have different companies and plants overseas.

“It is evident now that we would not have been able to open our assembly plant in China nor the US office on our old system. Despite this being a recent implementation of the software, Epicor has really supported our expansion plans and has enabled us to streamline our processes globally. The software has given us control and visibility across all locations already.”

Epicor ERP will support Marco’s material requirements planning, production line and sales order processing as well as after sales, all within one system.

Steve Winder, regional vice president for Epicor Software in the UK and Ireland explains, “With Epicor ERP, we are able to help Marco to see the full sales and production cycles in one place. This will enable the Marco team to gain visibility into exactly what’s happening within the business at any given moment in time anywhere in the world. This visibility and insight will enable the team to have greater control over their international expansion plans and support the company in meeting its growth target.”
