Canadian footwear company Groupe Yellow has selected Epicor's Retail Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to support its retail operations.

Yellow operates more than 90 stores selling women's, men's and children's shoes.

The Epicor Retail SaaS solution suite includes Store, CRM, Merchandising, Warehouse Management, Audit & Operations Management, and Business Intelligence modules.

Leo Rabinovitch, chief information officer for Groupe Yellow, said the new tool "removes the need for costly integration among modules, which is time and cost prohibitive."

He adds: "We will be able to make decisions and execute more quickly, buy and distribute more effectively, provide first-class customer service, and build a sustainable competitive advantage against our competition."

Yellow also signed on as the first SaaS customer to deploy Epicor Retail Sourcing and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) as a hosted solution, to help the business streamline its sourcing processes, reduce costs and increase supply chain visibility.
