Epicor® to educate local businesses on how to employ technology for better financial and risk management
Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions for the midmarket and divisions of Global 1000 companies, today announced that Matt Muldoon, Epicor’s senior director of product marketing will be presenting at the ICAI Conference on 12 March 2010. Muldoon is presenting at 11.00 a.m. on the topic “Leveraging Technology for Better Financial and Risk Management,” educating local businesses on how they can use technology to improve accounting and risk management processes. Epicor will also use the event to demonstrate Epicor for Financial Services, its industry-specific next-generation Epicor 9 enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, together with its local partner Incarnate ICT.
“The financial services industry is under pressure to look at ways of improving governance, risk and compliance management, while reducing costs at the same time,” said Matt Muldoon, senior director, product marketing for Epicor. “Many businesses in the Middle East are running large, expensive and aging accounting systems, or are stuck with cumbersome manual processes—not realizing that there are other options. Any financial services organization that is serious about growing its business should have a financial platform that is cost-effective in the long term yet flexible enough to change with the business where and when needed.”
"As the financial capital of the region, Bahrain is an important hub for Epicor, and with more than 400 customers and 15 partners in the Middle East, we are well placed to support local businesses across all industries," said Basil Daniells, regional director for Epicor in the Middle East, Africa, Turkey and India. "We have been present in the Middle East for over ten years and during that time we have helped organizations to improve business processes and grow operations locally, regionally and internationally."
"Business technology is an important part of local BCICAI's members' roles today and we want to help them understand how they can better use technology to their advantage when managing finances and risks within their organizations," said BCICAI chairman Alok Gupta. "As a global company with experience of solving financial challenges for small and large businesses we believe that Epicor is well placed to advise our members during the event this week."
