James Frampton appointed General Manager of Precise Business Solutions EMEA
Date: 02 December 2015

Perth, Western Australia, 2nd December, 2015 – Precise Business Solutions, Global Partner of the Year in 2013 and 2014 for Epicor Software, is delighted to announce the appointment of James Frampton as General Manager – Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA). In this role he will be responsible for leading the regional sales and operational functions. Prior to his appointment, James was Vice President Sales – EMEA for Epicor Software Corporation. He brings a wealth of experience and current knowledge with him, and he will be tasked with expanding the geographical footprint for Precise Products and our business model based on the Epicor ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution.

Precise has a unique relationship with Epicor. As well as a leading reseller of the Epicor ERP solution, we build products that extend Epicor ERP for businesses with retail sales operations. We also provide solutions for extended procurement processes and approval workflows for all Epicor customers.

James-Frampton_photo_small“James is very well known and highly regarded in the Epicor and EMEA community, with a great understanding of the challenges and opportunities we see in our initial principal areas of interest – the UK, Benelux and Middle East,” said Mark Batina, Managing Director of Precise Business Solutions. “We already have a good beachhead in the region with Precise Point of Sale and Epicor Advanced Requisition Management (ARM) extensions of Epicor. As well as building on this and bringing a new level of service to customers of those products, James will aim to bring more of who Precise is and what we do to the region as one of the most successful Epicor Channel Partners.”

James agrees: “Precise has a fantastic reputation in this region, with a solid base of reference customers for its products and great support from Epicor in bringing these to more and more businesses in UK and throughout EMEA. However, we see just as a much opportunity for Precise as a reselling Channel Partner in its own right, taking Epicor to similar industries to those Mark and his team have worked with so well in Australia.”

Precise works with traditional Epicor customers such as those in the manufacturing, engineer-to-order and assemble-to-order spaces, as well as targeting the not for profit, healthcare and aged care, wholesale/retail and services sectors. James explains: “Precise POS and Epicor ARM provide excellent additional capabilities for businesses in these areas, and combining these with industry-leading technology and Service Oriented Architecture from Epicor to integrate specific processes and external integration will be a real game-changer in this market. The new Contract and Services (“CnS”) suite will also find a lot of traction here.”

As well as a rapidly growing consulting and support team already in place in the UK and Netherlands, Precise EMEA will have full access to the Epicor functional, technical and development teams in Australia and Vietnam. The operation is headquartered in Reading, not far from the Epicor EMEA head office in Bracknell.
