Amix Salvage & Sales Leverages Some Heavy Business Management Mettle With the Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite

Another Long-Time Sage Accpac ERP Client Deploys Integrated Business Management Solution to More Effectively Market Its Services to Customers

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - November 12, 2008) - Sage Software announced today the deployment of its new Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite at Surrey-based metal recycler Amix Salvage & Sales Ltd. The Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite consists of Sage Accpac ERP version 5.5 with integrated SageCRM to support sales, marketing, and customer service management.

With 3 locations and 175 employees, Amix is one of the largest metal recyclers in British Columbia, running recycling centers, commercial scrap yards, and mobile collection operations. More than 40,000 automobiles pass through Amix's processing yards every year, on their way to be stripped, crushed, and shipped to metal-hungry markets in the Far East. The Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite combines the benefits of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM). This integration of business systems and processes with customer management information more fully supports Amix's growing operations. The company has seen its business volume soar in recent years, and to keep up, it relies on the Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite as its business management solution.

For over a decade, Amix has relied on Sage Accpac ERP to manage its business. When Dave Dungey was hired as controller, he recommended that Amix take advantage of the comprehensive technology advances that the Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite could bring to its internal business and external customer management. "We're just starting to make use of SageCRM," says Dungey. "But we already see how it will boost our marketing capabilities, help us analyze customer demographics, and give us a complete view of our customer interactions." Amix's Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite also offers integration with Sage FAS Fixed Assets. "This will give us the ability to accurately track our fixed assets in house, and automatically calculate depreciation," adds Dungey.

With the Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite, Amix Salvage & Sales is moving forward to make every level of the organization more productive. "As we incorporate technology in our business processes, we can see the enormous potential for additional efficiencies," concludes Dungey. "Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite is helping us to get there."
