“As our business has grown and become more complex, SYSPRO’s been up to everything we’ve thrown at it.”
– Allan Murray – Epicentre Trading, Managing Director
Founded in 1981, Epicentre Trading has its headquarters in Brisbane and is one of Australia’s largest and most experienced promotional product suppliers. For more than 35 years, Epicentre has been manufacturing and supplying an extensive range of promotional and corporate gifts, from custom-designed products to stock items. Epicentre’s products are found across a wide range of industries including mining, agriculture, government, retail and corporate. In addition to its Legend Life brand, Epicentre’s house of brands has grown over the years to include Great Southern Clothing Company, Stormtech, Stedman Collection and Next Level Apparel.
Following its initial implementation of a fully integrated SYSPRO solution in 2005, Epicentre identified a need for an effective eCommerce platform. As a result, the company embarked on a journey to understand how powerful SYSPRO is and exactly what the system’s capabilities are.
Today, Epicentre is a loyal, long-term SYSPRO user, currently running SYSPRO Version 7.1. Commenting on the decision to stay with SYSPRO, Managing Director Allan Murray says: “SYSPRO has never given us a reason to look elsewhere. The system has elevated our business from the outset. Initially, it was too sophisticated for our needs, but we’re glad we took the leap as we’ve grown into SYSPRO’s extensive functionality and capabilities.”
By optimizing the potential of SYSPRO and harnessing the power of its eCommerce platform, Epicentre has enjoyed growth beyond the market norm, significantly increasing its turnover without adding to its staff complement.
