MES Hybrid Document Systems Inc., Migrates Apollo Health and Beauty Care to Automated, Paperless Processes
Ontario document management company, MES Hybrid Document Systems, Inc., announces a successful document automation transition for Apollo Health and Beauty Care, Canada's largest private label and control label personal care manufacturer.
- Phoenix-Mesa, AZ (1888PressRelease) August 02, 2011 - MES Hybrid Document Systems, a supplier of document scanning solutions since 1971, provided a solution to address Apollo's current manual, paper-based processes. Experiencing significant growth, Apollo's internal processes could not keep pace with the increased workloads.
According to Apollo, the new document management system improves customer response time by 75 percent. The company estimates annual savings of $12,110.00 from eliminating over 200,000 paper pages each year.
The new document management solution integrates with Apollo's existing business systems and automates internal processes. Specific functions affected by the transition involve finance, order processing, customer service, sales and product development. Apollo can customize workflows to specific requirements, create a unified access point for documents, improve visibility into project status and eliminate considerable staffing hours previously devoted to tasks within these areas.
"We initially contacted MES Hybrid Document Systems to discuss solutions for email management and archiving," said the IT administrator for Apollo. "However, after an internal evaluation, they determined our real issues involved our manual and paper-based document processes.
"MES Hybrid Document Systems took the time to thoroughly understand our processes and requirements," they continued. "They delivered an automated, paperless solution with significant, quantifiable benefits."
Apollo has experienced major improvements in order processing, billing cycles, customer wait time, document availability, product artwork review processes, project status visibility and product launches. In addition, the solution improved email server function by eliminating the need for large file attachments.
"We're happy we could help Apollo Health and Beauty Care achieve such meaningful results," said Kevin D'Arcy, vice president of sales and marketing at MES Hybrid Document Systems, Inc. "Our solution streamlined Apollo's processes, reduced paper-based tasks and allowed staff to focus on the most important aspects of each project."
