Ace doubles down on POS partnership

By HBSDealer Staff - 03/12/2020
Ace Hardware Corp. is expanding its partnership with Epicor Software Corp.

Under terms of the partnership, Ace has officially selected Epicor Eagle as its designated point-of-sale (POS) solution, currently installed at more than 3,400 Ace Hardware stores.

The Oak Brook, Ill.-based co-op has been leveraging Epicor as a POS partner for two decades, and more than 3,400 of its 5,300-plus locally-owned and operated hardware stores in approximately 70 countries currently run Epicor Eagle.

In addition to supporting POS operations, Epicor Eagle N Series retail business software features integrated inventory management, purchasing and receiving tools. It also provides analytical tools that enable custom reporting with intuitive, on-screen metrics such as inventory, accounts receivable, and sales.

“It only made sense to expand our partnership with Epicor as we continue to build momentum as a brand and retailer. Epicor’s vision for, and commitment to, the independent retailer, coupled with its industry-specific technology, set the company apart from the rest,” said John Venhuizen, president and CEO, Ace Hardware. “Today marks the start of an expanded relationship and we’re excited about the potential and future developments that this will bring.”

“Over the past three decades, Epicor Eagle has delivered strong point-of-sale solutions to our customers. Despite big box competition, with this software retailers are thriving through superior customer engagement and greater efficiency – including Ace retailers,” said Steve Murphy, CEO, Epicor. “We’re delighted to continue our partnership and are proud to be the only point-of-sale software exclusively endorsed by Ace Hardware.”

Ace Hardware serves more than 5,300 locally owned and operated hardware stores in approximately 70 countries.
