Press release from the issuing company
Rocky Hill, CT - Software Marketing Associates announced today that VSG, Inc. has entered into a licensing agreement to use its Pro-Mail suite of direct-marketing and fulfillment software solutions to help the St. Louis-based company broaden its fulfillment business.
Founded in 1981, Software Marketing Associates (SMA) is the purveyor of Pro-Mail, the nation's top custom-tailored fulfillment and management software for the commercial printing, direct-mail and fulfillment industries.
"We are pleased that VSG has selected SMA and Pro-Mail to help grow the fulfillment services it offers," said Denise Lunden, SMA president. "VSG's vote of confidence is, we believe, attributable to a solid record of effective, individualized support our company delivers to each of our customers. We will work hard to maintain that trust. Our company looks forward to a working relationship that proves profitable for VSG and its customers."
VSG, established in 1985, is a fully licensed replicator for CD and DVD, and provides related services such as fulfillment, authoring, and interactive and database programming. VSG also operates facilities in Nashville, Dallas, Orlando and Raleigh.
Jerry Koerner, VSG director of business development, explains how his company chose SMA to be its partner. "Last year our company crafted a strategy to increase business nationally. Part of that plan included expanding our fulfillment services, something we were managing using in-house software that we knew had limitations. It was evident that a more robust fulfillment software package would be needed to meet our objectives."
VSG's search for a suitable fulfillment platform led the company to SMA. After learning about Pro-Mail's capabilities, seeing demonstrations on how Pro-Mail could be adapted as VSG needed and investigating other available software programs, the company concluded Pro-Mail was the right choice for it.
With the Pro-Mail decision behind it, VSG has focused much of this year acquiring additional manufacturing equipment and a new St. Louis-area warehouse in support of its expansion plans.
"We've carefully gone about putting the necessary pieces in place that will help VSG succeed going forward. We're excited about the future," says Koerner. "And with Pro-Mail, we're confident that our fulfillment business will grow to become an important and profitable part of our company."
VSG, Inc. is one of more than 200 client companies that place their trust in SMA and Pro-mail. Every day they depend upon Pro-Mail to seamlessly handle literally thousands of distinct fulfillment programs managed on behalf of Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies, among others.
