Holmberg Selects Adonix X3 to Improve Customer Relations

Press release from the issuing company

PITTSBURGH--Jan. 21, 2002--The Holmberg Company, one of the largest converters of paper for the growing print-on-demand industry, is improving its sales, marketing, customer service and manufacturing operations, and it's using Adonix software to do so. "Our first priority is to upgrade our customer service by improving our shop floor control and inventory management with the Adonix system. Our current systems don't have the capabilities to provide real time manufacturing and inventory information,'' said Rich Greig, Holmberg's director of operations. "Adonix's superior functionality will help us reduce operating costs and improve customer service by providing current information on stock and custom orders.'' "Holmberg will take its first steps in enabling distributors and private label customers to place orders and check order status through our Web site,'' said Greig. "We will also offer online information about our products and current applications. Adonix has the advanced e-business tools we need to do this in a single well-integrated and affordable enterprise package.'' The Adonix X3 enterprise software suite has been completely rebuilt to give users access to system functions through a standard Web browser. This approach eliminates the need for costly, complex installation of software on users' computers and dramatically reduces technical support costs. It is engineered to be easier to install and maintain, easier to use, and easier to customize and extend than traditional systems, saving time, lowering costs and reducing implementation risks. Adonix X3 integrates all the functions of business operations into one system to ensure seamless information flow within a company and with its business partners. It includes modules for manufacturing, sales, customer relationship management, purchasing, inventory control, warehouse management, quality control and accounting. Adonix X3 is suited for discrete, process and mixed-mode manufacturers and distributors. It is specially designed for the make-to-order, configure-to-order, assemble-to-order, make-to-stock and batch manufacturing environments. Adonix X3 is one of the few systems targeted to the middle market that provide an open architecture to support e-business. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, privately held Holmberg produces custom index tabs and reinforced, perforated and punched paper specifically designed for print-on-demand electronic publishing systems. It also supplies private label products to paper manufacturers, office equipment manufacturers and office products distributors. Adonix gives midsize companies the functionality and technology that large corporations require without the complexity and at an attractive price. The company supports more than 4,500 customer installations worldwide through a network of independent sales and service organizations. Adonix is a global company, with its North American headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and a satellite office in Tarrytown, New York.
