When I typed in Metaphorix into Google I found this article on the Equisys website as a press release.
It was also featured on the Microsoft Dynamics ERP “The Edge” blog in this article
The Microsoft blog makes a very good point about Microsoft partners collobarating
Partner collaboration in the finest sense of the meaning is nothing new – VARs and ISVs have always worked together, VARs have used upgrade service centers and so on and so on. What’s changed and what (IMHO) will be a continuing trend in the channel is the number of partners that start to look at ways to collaborate more with other partners as they look for new ways to offer their customersmore value or what they really need.
I have pasted below the main part of the article
Agreement sees Metaphorix include Zetadocs for NAV as standard for all new customers
London, UK – 13th July 2010: Equisys plc today announced an agreement with Metaphorix Ltd that will see Zetadocs offered to all new Metaphorix customers, as part of a complete solution with Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Integrating with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and GP, Zetadocs allows ERP reports such as purchase orders and invoices to be emailed and faxed individually or in batches, whilst still personalizing content, address details and attachments.
Additionally, incoming documents can be captured for on-screen processing, archive and sharing via SharePoint. Zetadocs allows customers to significantly lower their document delivery costs, achieve faster invoice payment, improve credit control and provide better customer service.
“The delivery element of Zetadocs satisfies a basic need that is not included in Microsoft Dynamics NAV,” said Neil St John, Sales Manager at Metaphorix Ltd, one of the UK’s top ten Microsoft Dynamics NAV partners. “Automating the delivery of documents by email and fax helps customers save money and increase productivity, so including Zetadocs as standard in all our new system sales increases the value proposition of NAV.
What’s more, the integration with SharePoint and the ability to scan documents, and perform Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to help process information, increases efficiency and is valuable for a number of processes.” Metaphorix helps small and medium-sized companies change the way they do business with their customers and suppliers.
With high quality professional services that are constantly evolving, Metaphorix delivers project management designed to remove factors that can put the project at risk, all for a fixed price. A Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Metaphorix focuses on companies working in the construction, manufacturing, distribution and service sectors predominantly in the UK.
Chris Oswald, CEO at Equisys commented: “Metaphorix quickly understood how Zetadocs would benefit its customers, and the agreement means that Zetadocs will be included as standard for all new customers of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The cost savings and efficiency gains delivered by using Zetadocs with NAV will provide a compelling return on investment for customers, allowing Metaphorix to stand out from the competition.”
“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Equisys on creating this opportunity for our customers,” concluded Neil St John at Metaphorix. “The Equisys team is extremely enthusiastic about Zetadocs and the benefits that it brings to users of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. We’ve found them to be incredibly helpful, very flexible and always looking to serve the needs of the customer as best they can. I believe that this agreement will be of great benefit not just to Metaphorix and Equisys, but more importantly to our mutual customers.”
Metaphorix has already delivered installations of Zetadocs for NAV to customers including Rimstock, Pearce Construction, Guthrie Douglas, 2Ergo and MPG Group. The reseller is now introducing Zetadocs to its other existing customers, and to all new customers looking to implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
