Annual awards ceremony honors customers whose deployments of Mobius technology drive significant value for their organizations
LONDON, May 15 / -- Mobius Management Systems, Inc., a leading provider of integrated solutions for enterprise archiving and records management, today announced the winners of the 2007 Mobius Customer Achievement Awards for its European customers. The awards were presented at the 3rd annual Mobius Users Group (MUG) conference for customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), held this year in London, UK. Reinforcing the conference theme, "Celebrating the Silver, Going for the Gold", award recipients were recognized in seven categories based upon demonstrated innovative, beneficial and strategic use of Mobius technology in their organizations. The winners were chosen from a wide selection of Mobius implementations that drive revenue, improve customer service, enable regulatory compliance, and reduce the costs of doing business.
"As we round off the celebrations of Mobius's 25th anniversary, this year's customer awards have special meaning," said Tulin Pledger, director of EMEA marketing at Mobius. "For the past 25 years, the Mobius solution suite has been helping organizations deal with the rising tide of digital information that may be scattered across the globe in disparate repositories. This capability is now more important than ever for our customers as they grapple with the mounting costs and risks associated with legal and regulatory compliance, increasing customer demands for information availability, and the business need to proactively manage and leverage all electronic assets across the enterprise. It's been a privilege to recognise this year's award winners, who are realising the potential of their investments in Mobius products and people."
The following EMEA-based organisations were recognised with Mobius Customer Achievement Awards for 2007:
Heinz, with a portfolio of leading food brands, won the award for the highest return on investment. By automating its SAP accounts payable process using Mobius's ViewDirect and capture technology from Mobius partner DICOM, Heinz has minimised both invoice processing costs and error rates.
Vattenfall AB, the leading Nordic utility provider, was recognized for the best application for lowering cost of doing business. Using Mobius software to deliver customer billing information over the Internet, Vattenfall has dramatically cut paper, postage and distribution costs.
Postbank, Germany's third largest retail bank, was honored with the award for most innovative use of technology, based on an implementation of Mobius's Total Content Integrator (TCI) to access information from multiple repositories, including a home grown archive, SAP, and a legacy archive system. The bank is also archiving transaction banking and payment information for three other German banks.
Commerzbank, another leading German bank, currently gives its 750,000 private customers Internet access to account information. Customers can download their bank account statements and print them locally, saving the bank 67,000 euros in paper costs in the last 3 months alone. Commerzbank won the award for best application for improving customer service.
e-utile, Italy's leading gas and electricity supplier and winner of the award for best compliance application, achieved compliance with Italian conservation laws using Mobius archiving together with a digital signature certified solution. e-utile currently archives up to 50,000 bills per day.
BNP Paribas, a leading international financial institution, was recognised for best strategic direction. Having used Mobius technology for archiving large reports produced by mainframe applications and distributing them across the enterprise, BNP Paribas is now rolling out the solution within the entire Group.
Mobius's French reseller, Avitis, was honoured as partner of the year. Enthusiasm, initiative and drive to grow the business have been instrumental in helping Avitis add a number of new accounts to the Mobius customer base.
