Epicor Software acquired this developer.

DUBLIN, Calif., September 13, 2012 — Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced it has agreed to acquire privately held Solarsoft Business Systems from Marlin Equity Partners. Solarsoft is a specialist in midmarket enterprise resource planning (ERP) and management systems for manufacturing and distribution.

“Epicor to Acquire Solarsoft Business Systems.” Epicor Press Release.

Solarsoft supplies modern enterprise software and IT services to manufacturers, distributors and wholesale businesses across North America, Europe and Asia. Tropos has been developed for short-cycle demand-driven manufacturing and the needs of regulated industries. The majority of ERP products were designed around discrete manufacturing. By contrast, Tropos was designed for process manufacturing from the start. Recipe based Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) and MRPII are built in.

Tropos is ideal for food processors and packers, pharmaceuticals, mills and metals processing, specialty chemicals and general manufacturing in process oriented industries, particularly those supplying the major retailers or those distributing short shelf-life products.

Key Benefits/Features:

  • Improved materials traceability let’s you and your customers see what went in to every output
  • Accurate delivery scheduling improves the flow of information
  • Reduced inventory allows businesses to run leaner with more flexibility
  • A modern, scalable system that is easily learned and easily deployed thanks to its browser-based user interface
