Epicor customer event highlighted how local businesses can use technology trends and strategies to become regionally and globally competitive.

Driven by significant growth in smartphone adoption, Africa is poised to become the skills pool for the world. Underpinned by innovation solutions derived from trends such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics, the continent has become an attractive target for international investment.

This is according to Arthur Goldstuck, head of South African research consultancy World Wide Worx, speaking at an Epicor customer event held in Johannesburg.

“The digital divide between Africa and more developed economies used to be a significant obstacle that needed to be overcome for the continent to be competitive on the international stage. This is no longer the case with many examples of how African countries are using mobile payment solutions and other services being mirrored in the global marketplace,” said Goldstuck.

For Epicor Software Corporation, a provider of industry-specific software to promote business growth, these technology and business growth trends are reflected in the latest version of its next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP.
