Demos

When we searched the market, across all platforms, for a good Dealer Management Solution for our dealers we were very impressed with the industry functionality of the Annata 365 product and the business knowledge from Annata’s consultants. They stood out from the rest. Since starting the implementations at our dealers the involvement of Annata and the functionality of Annata 365 has proven our choice was the correct one and they have been a key part of the success.

The strongest measurement of value delivered can be seen against stock inventory - critical when you carry over 100,000 stock lines. We estimate that real time visibility dropped 15-20% of the total value of stock across the group - and this alone funded completely the entire implementation.

From the start, Annata's Sealer Management Solution solution had a great impact on the organization's daily operations. The speed of service has increased tremendously, as necessary information is only a click away.

We have managed to achieve a very big cost-saving with the implementation of this new solution. One of the savings is that the company has been able to reduce the IT team because IT maintenance is easier overall.
