National Mailing & Marketing (NMM) has selected Advanta Software specialist’s ATLAS logistics suite to help meet their growth requirements.
NMM is a Canberra based provider of warehouse, mail fulfilment and distribution services. NMM specialise in marketing management incorporating a fully integrated distribution service including Fulfilment, Pick & Pack, Computer Services, Warehousing and Inventory, Telemarketing, E-Commerce, Design, Print & Packaging and Distribution.
Advanta is providing NMM several modules from their ATLAS Supply Chain Execution and eLogistics suites. The initial modules cover Local Freight, Client Billing and Warehouse Management, but beyond these the ATLAS suite will provide the firepower for NMM to introduce a wider variety of value added services in the future.
The introduction of the ATLAS suite will replace a number of non-integrated systems including Access databases and Excel spreadsheets. NMM Finance Officer and Project Manager Damian Toms explains that the Advanta system “will fully integrate our current processes, gaining efficiencies” in maintaining warehouse stock levels and processing orders.
Asked why NMM selected Advanta’s solution, Mr Toms cited the main reasons as being the comprehensive functionality provided by the ATLAS suite, Advanta’s exceptional trade references and ability to fit NMM’s requirements. ”The Advanta system came highly recommended and was a perfect fit to move our company forward” he notes.
With the ATLAS solution in place, NMM expect increased revenue capture due to an integrated system of recording of billing information together with improved processing efficiencies and accuracy. This will allow NMM to offer their existing clients a greater suite of services, whilst also assisting their expansion into new business areas.
