Epicor Software Corporation announced Canadian swimwear retailer Groupe Bikini Village inc has selected the Epicor Retail Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to provide the infrastructure, software and best practices to streamline its retail organization and support long-term growth plans.

Serving Canadians for almost a quarter-century, Bikini Village, is a leading swimwear retailer with locations across Eastern Canada.

Bikini Village is known for offering customers a vast selection of swimsuits, beach and vacation accessories, and cruise wear, from a wide range of well-known brands including Roxy, Christina, Gottex, O'Neill, OP, Anne Cole, Guess, Body Glove, and Tommy Hilfiger. Headquartered in Boucherville, Québec, the company operates 60 stores under the Bikini Village banner in Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Bikini Village has made a significant investment in overhauling and refreshing many of its stores — part of an ambitious renovation and expansion strategy — which is now beginning to yield impressive financial results. The company recently posted a 25 percent increase in Q1-2008 year-over-year revenues.

To support its growth, Bikini Village sought an end-to-end fully integrated, retail solution that would give the company greater inventory visibility, improve operational efficiencies and streamline business processes. To this end, Bikini Village chose the Epicor Retail SaaS solution to provide the right infrastructure and best practice methodologies.

The Epicor Retail SaaS delivery model is a turnkey retail solution that provides retailers with access to Epicor's award winning suite of solutions for the specialty retail marketplace while virtually eliminating the need for an on-site retail IT infrastructure. The “pay as you go” SaaS pricing model eliminates the need to amortize the cost of “traditional” software licenses, providing substantial total cost of ownership advantages as a result.

The Epicor Retail SaaS solution for retail includes the associated implementation and integration services, support and maintenance as well as ongoing updates and upgrades, giving retailers the freedom and flexibility to focus their IT resources on other parts of the business. With a proven four month project timeline from project kick off to live, the Epicor Retail SaaS solution for retail offers significant time-to-market benefits.

For a fixed fee plus a one-time start-up charge, the SaaS offering delivers Epicor's acclaimed Store, Merchandising, Planning, Audit & Operations Management, CRM and Business Intelligence directly to store locations and the head office, via reliable, high-speed networks.

Epicor hosts the software on secure, redundant servers, supplies and installs all hardware and infrastructure, and provides round-the-clock data security, backups and complete system maintenance — all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional software licensing and implementation model. The SaaS offering also includes ongoing updates to the latest Epicor Retail software releases, making it the last migration a retailer will ever need.
