BARNSLEY, England, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MAM Software Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of MAM Software Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MAMS) has announced that GROUPAUTO UK and Ireland Ltd., has chosen to install Autopart WMS at its new Distribution Centre, which opens in June 2011. The new warehouse management system (WMS) will help GROUPAUTO optimise the flow of goods through its Distribution Centre, managing all activities from goods receiving and putaway to picking, packing and shipment.
GROUPAUTO UK and Ireland is a fully integrated trading group with over 350 distributor members and 580 outlets. Part of the European-wide GROUPAUTO International, the group provides a range of services to parts manufacturers, distributors and garages. These include dedicated purchasing and marketing programmes and a branded garage scheme.
Autopart WMS is a specialised edition of MAM Software's proven retail/wholesale application. It will provide GROUPAUTO with comprehensive inventory management functionality including wireless data capture, location mapping, load planning and carrier integration.
Through a series of staged developments, Autopart WMS will provide GROUPAUTO with functionality of any proprietary warehouse management system without the complexity and uncertainty of integrating a third-party solution into its existing Autopart infrastructure.After reviewing a number of options, GROUPAUTO chose MAM's Autopart solution because it is a well known product which is used extensively through the group's membership. Autopart not only provides a proven flexible working solution but also enables members to connect to the Distribution Centre easily and seamlessly to enquire on stock and price and place orders. "The research and selection process was carried out by a consultant to GROUPAUTO who has worked with us from the start of our D.C. project," said Jim Mazza the Managing Director of GROUPAUTO. "Many options were presented to us, and we chose Autopart WMS because it was strategically the best fit for the business. We have plenty of past experience working with MAM developing software for use in our business. We look forward to the full rollout of Autopart WMS which is expected to take place before the end of the year. The early indications are that we will not be disappointed." "We are delighted to have been chosen by GROUPAUTO for this prestigious project," said Mike Jamieson, CEO of MAM Software Group. "We have a long-standing relationship with GROUPAUTO and are extremely pleased to add Autopart WMS to the portfolio of products that we supply and support. The new warehouse functionality we are developing will further extend the capabilities of Autopart and provide GROUPAUTO with a fully integrated solution for all of its business activities."
