U.K.'s largest automotive refinish distributor deploys MAM solutions to improve operational efficiencies across branch and warehouse operations

MAM Software is pleased to announce that Morelli Group, the largest independent supplier to the U.K. crash repair market, has deployed Autopart Online and warehouse management software (WMS) to manage its business operations. The cloud-based solution will help Morelli improve operational efficiencies across its branch network as well as managing warehouse operations at its central distribution depot.

The Morelli Group is today the largest automotive refinish distributor in the U.K. operating from a network of strategically located branches to provide national coverage to the U.K. mainland. The Group has established itself as the number one U.K. supplier of Glasurit, Spies Hecker, Du Pont, Standox, PPG and De Beer paint brands and is 3M's largest independent distributor in the automotive market.

Through organic growth and acquisition, Morelli Group has secured the transition from a traditional local distribution model to an national supply partner. The company chose to implement Autopart Online from MAM Software to manage its varied business processes and provide a flexible platform for its continued growth.

"Our objective was to combine highly efficient logistics with leading-edge IT solutions to give us a competitive advantage," said Steve Opsblum, IT Manager at Morelli Group. "Although we had a long relationship with our previous system providers, we felt the time was right for us to make the decision to move to a more developed, user friendly, and ultimately more flexible system. Based on our requirements, Autopart Online from MAM Software was our 1st choice.

"We believe that the features within Autopart Online are a very good fit for where we see Morelli Group growing as a company in the years to come. We have found the support from MAM Software in the transition stage to Autopart Online to be of a very high standard. The project management team have been quick to respond to any development needs and issues during that process.

"We have been impressed with the WMS module in our very busy distribution centre and can see a lot of future potential in using the system."

"Complex businesses like the Morelli Group need comprehensive yet flexible solutions that can adapt to their unique business requirements," said Mark Kendall, National Sales Manager at MAM Software. "By combining all its major business functions into an integrated cloud solution, Autopart Online will simplify Morelli's administration and maintenance while providing the company with an agile platform that can be easily expanded as the business grows.

"We are pleased that Morelli selected MAM Software as its IT partner and look forward to supporting the business for the long term."
