GranQuartz Canada Selects Epicor Prophet 21 to Manage Custom Services
Largest distributor of stone tools in Canada selects modern ERP to automate business By PR Newswire

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced GranQuartz Canada has chosen the award winning Epicor® Prophet 21® software as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to automate its business processes and access all information under one system.

GranQuartz Canada is based in Stanstead, QC, Canada. The company, founded in 1971, is the largest distributor of stone tools and equipment in Canada. The company operates the largest fleet of mobile sales vehicles in the stone industry, bringing its customers the products they need when they need it. In addition to the stone industry, the company provides top quality products and services to the concrete polishing and tile markets.

GranQuartz Canada offers custom and tailored services for their customers.  Their previous system could not manage and automate personalized services, so when the company began searching for a new ERP system, the ability to do so was very important to them.

"We wanted to give our customers the best possible customer service, but we didn't have the systems to do so," said Mélanie Samson, project coordinator, GranQuartz Canada. "We needed a system that would have all the information that we needed in one place, allowing us to follow up with our customers faster and provide a better overall experience."

A better way to train employees
GranQuartz Canada's previous system wasn't integrated, resulting in a mostly manual process for the company. Not only did this affect inventory management, it also made training employees a time consuming process. Because most of their services are tailored to their customers' needs, the company relied heavily on human awareness, and there was a lot for employees to learn. Implementing Prophet 21 will allow the company to rely less on employee knowledge and instead only train on the system and products. "We have already seen benefits in the training process. We can train employees according to the workflow and people are able to train from home or whenever it's convenient for them. Administrators can also see where people are at in the process, how they are doing, and use that information to figure out their training needs," said Samson.

"The Epicor Prophet 21 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. "Prophet 21 software offers a combination of features and functionality that can accurately streamline processes. Pricing, inventory and even quoting becomes automated reducing time consumption."
