AUSTIN, TX : Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, and Orchid Advisors, the firearm industry’s trusted compliance and operations experts, have announced availability of the Epicor FFL Compliance Manager application to help firearms dealers simplify and streamline the process of complying with today’s complex and evolving gun laws. In order to easily provide firearm transaction data required by federal agencies, the solution simplifies and automates the processes of capturing, storing and reporting the data.

Epicor, with assistance from Orchid Advisors, LLC, developed the Epicor FFL Compliance Manager application to reduce the compliance burden on FFLs by automating and streamlining A&D recordkeeping. The solution reduces non-compliance risk, streamlines transaction entries and generates the essential reports for ATF inspections or inquiries. Irrespective of enterprise size, the comprehensive solution is able to aptly address the compliance needs in methodical manner.

 “The Epicor FFL Compliance Manager tool is rooted in firearms best practices from Orchid Advisors, along with Epicor’s user interface design, business process management and technology expertise. Together, we are able to make it easier for FFLs to deal with the growing list of compliance issues,” said Doug Smith, Director of Product Management and Marketing for Epicor.

Exemplary for enterprises of any size, the solution gives FFLs a comprehensive system to help them to be compliant and serve customers more efficiently. Epicor FFL Compliance Manager can be accessed from virtually any device, at any time, and from any location through an Internet connection. A “one-click” self-audit tool supports 24x7 audit readiness by quickly packaging selected data required by ATF agents. While Epicor FFL Compliance Manager is a completely self-contained solution, it can be easily integrated with the leading Epicor Eagle retail business management system. The combination of the two solutions gives firearm dealers a comprehensive end-to-end solution that can protect and optimize every aspect of their businesses.

“Having a Federal Firearms License is not a right. It’s a privilege that must be guarded and respected through careful compliance,” said Jon Rydberg, CEO of Orchid Advisors. “Epicor FFL Compliance Manager software enables firearms businesses through an unparalleled set of software tools and support services for serial number tracking, A&D reporting and ATF compliance.”
