Expertise in providing software solutions for the fashion industry since 1986.

Esperus was formed in 1986 as a software house for the design and development of software business solutions for the clothing and footwear industries in the retail, wholesale distribution and manufacturing sectors.

Our headquarters are based in North London, where our development and technical support team are located. We have in house experts with many years of experience in applying software solutions to the fashion industry. Since each customer’s business processes are unique, we build personal relationships and work closely with them to understand their business and how they want the system to work for them to achieve their business goals.

This approach has undoubtedly been responsible for the company’s success and the average client retention of over 10 years. We have many satisfied clients who provide testimony to the commitment we have to achieve the highest standards of professionalism.

We are one of very few UK based companies that can provide a complete multi-channel solution for the fashion industry that covers ePoS, retail, wholesale and eCommerce. Our system allows you to enter the product once and all your sales channels and stock are synchronised! Whether you are a large organisation or a small one, our modular system is scalable so you only ever pay for what you need.
