Epicor, a global provider of eCatalog content, eCommerce solutions, enterprise software, data analytics, estimating platforms and other products and services for the auto care industry, last year became the first title sponsor in the conference’s 70-year history. The company has extended its support in recognition of the event’s vital role in enhancing communication and collaboration among distributors and their key suppliers, according to Scott Thompson, senior vice president, automotive and business services, Epicor.
“Our easy-to-use solutions are a great fit to help organizations at every level of the industry---from the largest manufacturers to single-location service providers---grow their businesses and drive customer loyalty,” Thompson said. “As one of the few organizations that truly connects and empowers this impressive value chain, and in keeping with our growing investment in the motor vehicle aftermarket, we welcome the opportunity to help strengthen the relationships of hundreds of channel partners in the traditional distribution marketplace.”
Epicor products and services help suppliers, distributors, service providers and other businesses get “fit” for stronger growth through exceptional ease of use, increased efficiency, reduced costs, and deep, rich insight into ever-changing market realities. The company’s latest solutions include a growing range of Industry Data Analytics for the manufacturing, distribution and service sectors.
“Epicor is a longtime partner to many AWDA members and is deeply committed to the auto care industry. We are very pleased to again receive their support in making this year’s conference our best yet,” said Larry Northup, AAP, executive director of AWDA and senior director of community engagement for the Auto Care Association.
The annual AWDA Business and Education Conference hosts more than 2,000 individual one-on-one business meetings scheduled over two days and represents the auto care industry’s single, most efficient venue for warehouse distributors and their suppliers to conduct real business.
