Epicor looks to expand omnichannel capabilities with acquisition of ShopVisible


Austin, Texas - Business software solution provider Epicor Software Corp. has agreed to acquire Atlanta-based ShopVisible LLC, a provider of cloud retail order management and digital commerce solutions. The acquisition of ShopVisible, expected to close by the end of the year, will expand Epicor’s position as a provider of extended omni-channel solutions for midsize and large retail chains.

ShopVisible delivers an advanced standalone order management solution that includes full order management lifecycle capabilities from initial order collection through order orchestration to post-transaction order repository processes. The combination of ShopVisible’s foundational order management capability with Epicor POS, mobile POS, omnichannel enterprise selling, merchandising and warehouse management solutions is expected to create an integrated end-to-end cloud-based solution for omnichannel retailers.

The ShopVisible platform also includes packaged integrations to leading third party systems leveraging modern standard published web services and file-based interfaces. ShopVisible retail customers include Liberty Hardware and Bluemercury.

“We are excited about this acquisition, as ShopVisible has spent several years developing and proving out its world-class order management and digital commerce solutions with some highly progressive companies,” said Noel Goggin, executive VP and general manager, Epicor Retail. “We believe ShopVisible’s proven and scalable solutions will be a perfect complement to the Epicor solutions portfolio. We have a vision to enable the transformation of our customer’s operations to meet the new retail reality -- we call this a transformation to inspired retailing’ -- together with ShopVisible we expect to fully deliver on the vision.”

Following the close of the acquisition, ShopVisible CEO Sean Cook and Josh Lloyd, co-founder and CTO at ShopVisible, will join the Epicor Retail team to lead cloud-based order management and digital commerce initiatives.
