To begin with VAAM will deploy the financials and distribution modules across three of the VAMM Group subsidiaries.
“We have chosen Epicor ERP to support our businesses and to support our long-term strategic growth. Over the last few years, VAMM Group has been on an exponential growth track and we believe that deploying Epicor 9 across our key businesses will help us achieve cost-efficiency and reduce redundancies in our operations,” said Yazad Patel, Director, Operations, VAMM Group.
Epicor will be deployed in VAMM Group’s trading arm, VAMM International, the company’s early childhood development entity, Kidville U.A.E, and brand management and trading company, G&W Brands.
Patel added, “Epicor will also be deployed with a view to VAMM’s highly anticipated future growth prospects. The management team found a natural synergy in adopting an ERP system that would not only deliver a comprehensive platform for the present day, but one that would also develop and scale in sync with future requirements of each of the Group’s businesses.”
Epicor’s financial management modules will offer VAMM Group a competitive platform for managing finances on a global scale while taking care of all mandatory regulatory requirements. The distribution module will support seamless business automation with a comprehensive warehouse management system (WMS) and true end-to-end supply chain visibility for all the VAMM Group companies.
“Across the Middle East, Epicor has helped companies achieve significant operational and cost efficiency at a low total cost of ownership (TCO),” said Basil Daniells, vice president sales for Epicor. “We are confident that these benefits will bring about significant advantages positively impacting the bottom line for VAMM Group.”
Epicor’s service-oriented architecture (SOA) and built-in business performance management (BPM) capabilities offer customers in the region a flexible solution that can help them grow their businesses.
Daniells concluded, “We are delighted to service VAMM Group and be part of their growth story. Since scalability and flexibility are Epicor hallmarks, we look forward to supporting VAMM Group in its future business endeavors.”

G&W Brands is an import export and brand management company whose principal focus is to bring and build new brands in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia markets.
