Software provider Epicor announced that it has acquired Elite Extra, provider of cloud-based last-mile delivery solutions.
Epicor said the acquisition will complement and strengthen its “ability to optimize last-mile logistics and solve supply chain challenges for customers across Epicor’s vertical industries. This will help distributors, independent service shops and dealers improve efficiency, reduce costs, and deliver a superior customer experience that builds loyalty and creates a competitive advantage,” said Epicor. Financial terms were not disclosed.
“Getting the right parts and products to the right place at the right time is essential in today’s marketplace. More and more, it’s all about make, move, sell…and deliver,” said Epicor CEO Steve Murphy. “We are thrilled to welcome Elite Extra as part of the Epicor team, adding advanced last mile delivery capabilities to help our customers simplify, streamline, and strengthen their logistics operations.”
Elite Extra is already integrated with Epicor Vision, the company’s automotive parts distribution management platform. In the future, Elite Extra will be integrated with other Epicor ERP platforms and productivity solutions across the Epicor Industry ERP Cloud portfolio, the company said.
“Like Epicor, we have built our company with a customer-centric mindset in delivering the innovative, purpose-built solutions our users need to solve their biggest supply chain challenges,” said Elite Extra President and Founder Jim Ward. “We are excited to continue that mission, and we look forward to expanding our resources in joining the Epicor team to help customers across industries optimize and streamline their delivery operations.”
