Santa Clara, CA April 2, 2002 Noosh has had some reason to celebrate lately, landing one new customer and announcing another customer thrilled with its Noosh results.
The collaborative e-business software solutions provider today announced that the Honeywell Consumer Products Group has chosen Noosh to provide a web-based solution for managing graphic design and procurement of printed materials. The Honeywell Consumer Products Group manufactures and markets FRAM® oil, air, transmission and fuel filters; Prestone® antifreeze coolant and car care products; Autolite® spark plugs; and Holts® car care products.
Honeywell hopes the Noosh solution will help extend Honeywell's position in the industry by accelerating responsiveness to market demand and time-to-market, thereby improving growth while reducing costs. Honeywell will use Noosh 5" to help manage and procure sell sheets, catalogues, labels, and point-of-purchase materials. The first phase of the implementation will focus on procurement processes and enable best practices to improve sourcing performance. When fully implemented, the solution will help automate workflow among all key personnel involved in the multiple stages of the printed product lifecycle, from concept to completion. This includes internal and external teams involved in the creation, design, branding, legal approval, printing, and shipping of materials.
"We are excited to support Honeywell's vision to leverage digitisation in order to create competitive advantages," said Dave Hannebrink, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, of Noosh, Inc. "The brands marketed by the Honeywell Consumer Products Group are synonymous with high quality and performance and we are proud to be working with this winning team."
And Honeywell might now be more secure in their recent decision: TSO (The Stationery Office), one of Britain's largest publishers, today shared positive findings about the company's deployment of the Noosh e-business solution. While cost savings will exceed $700K (U.S.) in the first year, the company reports numerous business process improvements and customer satisfaction benefits as having even greater long-term value.
TSO deployed Noosh last year to simplify complex workflow and to automate many time-consuming, manual processes. The Noosh solution is currently implemented throughout the organization and extends across its base of more than 200 suppliers. Noosh is also providing the software infrastructure for TSO Consortia - a new collaborative and e-procurement service that TSO is launching this year as a deployable client resource.
"To run a process successfully requires all the elements of the workflow to be coordinated including those that fall outside the area of supply chain responsibility," said Keith Burbage, Managing Director of TSO Supply Chain Services. "To do this requires process interconnectivity, process visibility, process accountability. Noosh does this by organizing the major process elements in a logical way regardless of company boundaries."
