Epicor Software introduces the general availability of the Epicor Range Management solution, as well as an array of newly integrated firearms functionality for Epicor Eagle N Series software and the Epicor FFL Compliance Manager application, created in collaboration with Orchid Advisors. Epicor Range Management is an automated solution with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface built specifically for the management of gun ranges. The cloud-based tool offers real-time analytical information at a glance to assist in monitoring lane usage and berm extraction.
Epicor Range Management software is designed for optimized web-enabled mobile devices and tablets, offering employees and range officers a simple mobile solution to service more customers. Additional features include SMS texting, automatic payment management and the ability to manage liability waivers.
“Currently, the majority of firearms businesses are not using an automated solution to manage their shooting range,” said Bill Wilson, Epicor SVP, product development. “Manual processes can cause inefficiencies, safety concerns, and other unnecessary interruptions to the overall management of firearms retailers and ranges. These challenges can be resolved with our new firearms software and functionality — leading to increased sales and significant improvements to the customer experience.”
Frontier Justice, based in Lee’s Summit, Mo., recently launched FFL Compliance Manager and Eagle N Series software. Range Check-In Supervisor Rebecca Davis commented on its new functionality.
“The Epicor Range Management system is user-friendly and features easy-to-read descriptions for setting up ranges, bays and lanes, and training others on system capabilities,” she said. “Limited pop-up windows make navigation a breeze and actions are seamless from one to another. Easy-to-access buttons and shortcuts make transactions of all types efficient. It has eliminated the need to write down rentals, times or names, all while recording necessary transaction information. We are pleased with the time savings and transaction efficiency it offers our range.”

Outtech, Beretta Expand Conservation Partnership
Outtech and Beretta have been partners for seven years, and have now expanded their relationship to enhance efforts in working with outdoor conservation and recreational groups throughout the U.S.
Both companies have been longtime supporters of outdoor conservation and the groups supporting these efforts. They have recognized a need to provide enhanced service and communication with these organizations. Through this partnership, Beretta will leverage the expertise of Outtech’s sales team to further expand their support of these groups and their missions.
Tom Stuckey, Outtech’s director of coalitions, will lead the joint efforts. Stuckey brings with him many years of experience in working with these organizations.
“The key is focused attention to each group — the goals of their mission and the needs of their membership. Outtech is one of the few organizations that has recognized this and has dedicated staff for these efforts,” Stuckey explained. “We realize each group has different needs at different times. It’s important to have a consistent line of communication in place and face-to-face relationships to really understand and support the non-profit and conservation world.”
