Longtime Rivals Datamann, Morse Data in JV to Offer Morse's Management Software
Wilder, Vt., and Dover, N.H.— April 23, 2009 — Datamann, Inc., a provider of integrated data management solutions for multichannel marketers, and Morse Data Corporation, a provider of enterprise management systems for multichannel merchants, third-party fulfillment companies and publishers, today announced that Datamann has become an authorized reseller of Morse Data’s InOrder® enterprise management software.
As a result of the agreement, Datamann will make InOrder available to smaller companies and offer users of Datamann’s MOSP™ (Mail Order Software Plus) order management software a smooth upgrade path to an industry-leading SQL-based order management solution. Additionally, because Datamann is also an authorized reseller of Radiant Systems® CounterPoint point-of-sale software, Datamann will integrate CounterPoint SQL’s functionality with that of InOrder for InOrder users who wish to expand their retail operations.
Datamann Co-owner and Chief Operating Officer William Mann said the Datamann-Morse Data partnership gives his company new ways to help businesses grow. “For example,” Mann said, “when InOrder catalog and e-commerce customers wish to add retail operations, we’ll integrate the point-of-sale capabilities of CounterPoint software with the catalog fulfillment, phone order management and website functionality of InOrder software. And as our customers wish to migrate from MOSP to a Windows-based solution and all the benefits that come with using a SQL database, we can provide a seamless upgrade to InOrder. It’s a great combination to please customers and control costs.”
Morse Data Founder and Chief Executive Officer James Morse said the agreement with Datamann is a win-win solution for all parties. “We welcome the opportunity to serve Datamann’s MOSP and CounterPoint customers. InOrder offers Datamann’s customers a contemporary software solution while allowing them to be converted, implemented and supported by the Datamann team, with whom they are comfortable and familiar,” Morse said. “In addition, in the past we have had a size threshold for the companies we could serve. Datamann is reducing that threshold to only four or five users, making it possible for small businesses to obtain the enterprise management software they need to grow.”
