About

Employing over 1,300 people, EPI-USE, which is the world’s largest and most experienced independent SAP HCM specialist and which has emerged as a leader in designing, building, integrating and implementing Cloud-based, hybrid and on-premises SAP–based solutions for large, complex multinational corporations.

With a suite covering 34 countries, EPI-USE is the world’s largest independent purveyor of SAP country payroll software for regions in which SAP does not offer a standard payroll solution.  In its 30-plus year history, EPI-USE has implemented or been involved with more than 750 SAP HCM-based solutions around the world.

EPI-USE forms part of Zone 1 of the groupelephant.com group of companies. groupelephant.com is a largely employee-owned group of companies, non-profits and impact investment organizations, with a strong global presence. The Group is characterized by a primary strategic imperative, we go ‘Beyond Corporate Purpose’ in our day-to-day activities.  The Group has an unconventional approach to philanthropic activity.  Rather than implementing a traditional corporate social responsibility program and rather than simply donating funds to charities, in ‘Beyond Corporate Purpose’ we have a multi-zoned operating model comprising for-profit, not-for-profit and impact investment zones.  This model provides a professional, institutionalised delivery capability in the area of not-for-profit activity, and impact investment in support thereof.  The primary focus areas are the preservation of at-risk Elephants and Rhinos, and the economic upliftment of rural People in areas adjacent to the threatened species, or another meaning of ‘ERP’, if you will.

Our Partners

In the multi-zone model:

Zone 1

This zone comprises a number of for-profit boutique firms, each specializing in services and software products that address areas that are based on Enterprise Resource Planning (‘ERP’) systems and that are non-core, yet business-critical to large commercial enterprises and public sector agencies. Professionals in Zone 1 focus on delivering solutions designed to enhance organizational value, for myriad industries and sectors.

Zone 2

Comprises a professional, institutionalized nonprofit capability focused on the preservation and protection of Elephants and Rhinos in the wild, and the economic upliftment of rural People in adjacent areas (‘ERP’).

Zone 3

The third zone comprises companies focused on ecotourism asset management, wildlife-related property developments in furtherance of the objectives of the Elephants, Rhinos & People’ program, and any for-profit activity that does not fall into Zone 1 but that benefits either Zone 1 or Zone 2. Zones 2 and 3 collectively implement our ‘Beyond Corporate Purpose’ activity, in the form of the ‘Elephants, Rhinos & People’ program.
