Epicor to supply ERP to Urbanas in Colombia

June 10, 2013 - Epicor Software announced that Urbanas S.A. of Colombia has selected Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) as a technology platform to support the company's established growth strategies and integrate information from all areas of the business.

With nearly ninety years of market presence, Urbanas S.A. began as a family business founded in the department of Santander, Colombia. Today the company has over 200 shareholders and approximately 300 employees, concentrating its operations in the city of Bucaramanga and its metropolitan area. In recent years, Urbanas S.A. has been ranked in the top 10 construction companies in the country due to the successful implementation of projects in housing, commercial sector, clubs, and institutional buildings. The company consists of three major business units, Urban Development, Development and Construction of Real Estate Projects, and Private Construction for Third Parties.

As the company grew, it became evident that the internally developed, disconnected information systems would not be able to support all areas of business management for Urbanas S.A. With the increasing need to integrate all of its financial and project information, desire to move towards the use of customer relationship management (CRM) tools and business analytics, as well as provide support to the new growth strategy, Urbanas S.A. began the search for a modern and robust business software solution.

With the support of an IT consulting firm, Urbanas S.A. evaluated different ERP solutions. The search led them to the strengths of the system developed by Epicor. The innovative technology platform, ability to integrate with other systems, and a high degree of robustness, were key in Urbanas S.A. decision to choose Epicor ERP.

"Expectations are very high especially in terms of information integration, ease of use, ability to operate in different cities, and compatibility with other devices," said Juan Camilo Montoya, CEO of Urbanas S.A. "We recognize Epicor ERP as a great ally to control project management and profitability, as well as providing good data monitoring, which until now, has been a great challenge."

The Epicor ERP implementation at Urbanas S.A.is expected to begin during 2013 with the goal of going live early next year. The creation of a special committee composed of Urbanas S.A. Vice President of Operations, Directions of Finance, Auditing and Technology, along with the support of the Epicor team and Epicor Channel Partner Advance Process Consulting (APC) represent the ideal blend for driving and achieving project success.
