Buzz for American Biophysics Corp.'s products required new solution from Kewill
Marlborough, MA July 8, 2004 Kewill Solutions North America (LSE: KWL), a provider of enterprise shipping management software, announced today that American Biophysics Corp., the creator and manufacturer of the Mosquito Magnet Advanced Mosquito Defense System, has gone live with Kewill's enterprise shipping management solution.
In October 2003 American Biophysics Corp was ranked the No. 1 fastest growing private company with 25,615 percent growth in a five-year period (source: Inc Magazine: Inc. 500, Oct.2003). In order to ensure continued growth in the market, the company decided to invest in technology to run their supply chain. After an extensive market review, the company's information technology IT team decided to replace the existing legacy system with Oracle 11i and Kewill's enterprise shipping management solution.
"In addition to our growth drivers, the business is extremely seasonal, which creates a number of challenges in handling the peaks," said Stacy Lanphere, director of IT at American Biophysics Corp. "With peak shipping volumes reaching up to 350,000 per month, we needed to get the Kewill solutions in place before the spring selling season. The overall Oracle timeline was extremely tight with implementation required in three months. Kewill was exceptional in working with us to ensure we met our deadlines. With this past year's growth we could not ship our current volumes without Kewill."
"It is exhilarating to work with fast-paced, high-growth companies such as American Biophysics Corp.," commented Ira Grossman, vice president of Professional Services at Kewill Solutions North America. "Our implementation processes and expertise in integrating with Oracle were key factors in rapidly completing the project for American Biophysics Corp."
