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.

In the multi-zone model:

‘Zone 1’ 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’); and

‘Zone 3’ 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.
