Chelsea Lighting Partners with Epicor Eclipse to Move to Best-in-Class Software Solution
New York lighting and controls distributor consolidates data and increases efficiency with Epicor solution
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Chelsea Lighting has chosen the award winning Epicor® Eclipse® software as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to consolidate data into one system and better service customers.
Chelsea Lighting was established in 1994 as a lighting distribution firm. Chelsea Lighting employs over 50 lighting and controls professionals and is one of the largest lighting distributors in the area—supplying contract lighting and controls to the construction community, as well as to real estate owners and developers.
A growth in revenue and number of employees in the past several years prompted Chelsea Lighting to look for a more robust system that would improve productivity and efficiency. Moving to the Eclipse next-generation software will allow the company to provide more services and capabilities to its customer base.
“Our current system is a combination of multiple software systems tied together with complex Excel spreadsheets. We’re looking forward to moving our business to operate on one system, with one source of truth. Having all of our data in Eclipse will give us a real-time, deep-dive look into our business. With better business analytics we will be able to run our business more efficiently while identifying ways to improve service to our customers.”
Industry-specific software to improve business processes
Chelsea Lighting works on very high profile, complex construction projects primarily in New York City and the surrounding area. The Job Management module in Eclipse software was built specifically for project management, which is a major focus at Chelsea Lighting. The company has a team of over 20 project managers who ensure material is ordered correctly and delivered on time to job sites. The Eclipse solution will automate manual business processes, eliminate redundancies, and give management a better view into the business. “The deep understanding Epicor has of our niche industry, business model, and processes was a key consideration in our decision to partner with Epicor,” said Martin. “With the changing workforce as one of increased mobility and working remotely, Epicor will enable our business model to adapt, while maintaining data in one place that can be tracked, monitored, and analyzed anywhere, at any time.”
“The Epicor Eclipse solution is a proven success for distributors of all sizes, and the software is becoming more powerful and valuable to companies that need a one-stop shop for their services,” said Mark Jensen, director of product management, Epicor. “Eclipse software offers a combination of features and functionality that can accurately streamline processes. Pricing, inventory and even quoting becomes automated reducing time consumption.”
