Fusion5 discovers the missing link


Fusion5 discovers the missing link turning paper into e-business.

Auckland, New Zealand, 10 October 2005 – Fusion5 a leading provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Solutions in Australia and New Zealand, has signed an agreement to resell Esker’s Software Solution DeliveryWare as a natural progression to their product portfolio enabling them to provide end to end business automation.

Through experience in the field of successfully deploying ERP solutions to automate and streamline business processes, Fusion5 found that most enterprises even after implementing an ERP system still relied on a huge amount of paper documents to drive their businesses. Documents like purchase orders, invoices, statements and pay advices were being manually data entered to then fax, post, work flow approval and archived to and from the ERP systems. This common scenario identified a large opportunity to offer enterprises huge cost cutting solutions through e-document automation.

Fusion5 is not new to providing solutions that automate paper based processes but until now they have had to provide a complex selection of multiple products from different vendors. With almost every business focusing of total cost of ownership this was very expensive and complex to support and integrate making full adoption rare. Esker’s DeliveryWare Solution provides total document automation in a single platform allowing a true paperless office at the lowest possible total cost of ownership.

Rebecca Tohill, Fusion5’s Director of Business Development said “Our decision to become an Esker Partner was very easy to make. Esker had an already proven track record in Australia and New Zealand with over sixty local reference sites, almost all of which enjoyed a sub six month complete return on investment. Being able to provide data entry, document composition, faxing, postal outsourcing, document formatting, workflow and archive/retrieval in a single solution now allows Fusion5 to fill the historic gap between paper and e-business.”

James Elkington, Esker’s Asia Pacific Managing Director adds “Esker is very excited about its new partnership with Fusion5; building on Esker’s past successes in the high end SAP ERP Market with DeliveryWare, Fusion5 can now take this proven formula scaled to fit the JDE and Oracle world. Fusion5 complements Esker in every way especially with their local presence in New Zealand where Esker does not have a subsidiary but considers a key region.”
