Farwest Sports Hits the Target with Integration of Epicor Eagle and Coloseum Software Solution for Firearms
Real-Time Technology Links Powerful Business Management Solution with Firearm Tracking and Compliancy Software
Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Epicor Eagle now offers integration with AIMI eBook Pro, a firearms compliancy software provided by Coloseum Software Corporation, to support federal firearms licensed (FFL) dealers and retailers.
The integration of AIMI eBook and Epicor Eagle links the end-to-end business management and point of sale (POS) solutions, while helping to ensure compliance with firearms sales laws. With this integrated solution, merchants can eliminate the redundancy of data entry, enhance their customers' experience by reducing wait times, and increase productivity by diminishing entry error-leaving more time for the promotion of add-on merchandise such as accessories, ammunition and other high-margin items.
Farwest Sports Inc., a sporting goods and outdoor equipment corporation based in Fife, Washington, has operated on Epicor solutions since the 1980s and is a user of the integrated AIMI and Epicor Eagle firearms solution. With annual firearms sales and transfers in Farwest's retail stores Sportco and Outdoor Emporium approaching 11,000 firearms, the company recognized they would greatly benefit from an integrated firearms tracking, compliancy and POS software solution.
“Epicor has been a trusted business partner of ours for more than 25 years,” said Tina Browning, inventory control manager at Farwest Sports Inc. “We knew that if Epicor Eagle could somehow be incorporated with our AIMI solution, our firearms business would be more streamlined and inventory accuracy amplified. This has proven to be the case, with Epicor Eagle our inventory accuracy has skyrocketed and with our use of AIMI, compliancy is first-class. We had zero violations on our 2012 audit, which means 100% compliancy--this is something we are very proud of considering the volume of firearms we sell.”
“The Epicor Eagle and AIMI integrated solution has been phenomenal,” said Browning. “Our firearm business is now completely automated which gives us better inventory control and takes the guesswork out of what firearm we are selling so that it's the right one and always priced correctly. With the number of firearms we have going in and out of the door every year, it's imperative that we get data entry right every time. Epicor Eagle has been an extraordinary tool to help us accomplish that requirement.”
“Epicor is excited to partner with Coloseum Software to offer the Eagle and AIMI integrated solution to FFL dealers and retailers,” said Doug Smith, senior product manager, retail distribution solutions at Epicor. “With this integration, retailers can now rely upon the Aimi solution for firearms tracking compliancy and upon Eagle for retail and inventory management.”
