Ithaca Agway and True Value Hardware Lawn & Garden Retail Store Kicks Out Epicor Eagle for Microsoft Dynamics RMS
2 page Case Study posted: 11/28/2012

Ithaca Agway and True Value managed their business with Epicor Eagle POS Software and struggled with high costs associated with that system. They were also bogged down with paper orders and didn’t have real-time insight on whether they could make a sale and couldn’t predict when items were available. With their Epicor solution, they were not able to price compare products across their multiple suppliers and were never really sure if they were getting the best price. Ithaca Agway and True Value worked with System Solutions LLC to implement Microsoft Dynamics RMS and is now realizing a 20-25% increase in efficiency with mobile devices in receiving, improving profitability with the use of suggested orders, enhancing customer service with real-time insight into inventory and a streamlined check out process, and making way for growth with plans for a new store in Lansing, New York.
