Irish Mamut One Launch
In July, Mamut launched Mamut One, a powerful office solution which brings together business software with web-based services. Mamut One was designed in response to SMEs demands for a complete office solution with capabilities including accounting, finance, CRM, sales force automation, logistics, HR, and e-commerce. It provides all users with the right information on the right device, anywhere, at any time, without any additional investments in infrastructure – making it ideal for accountants, mobile workers and those “on the road”. “Since the launch of Mamut One there has been a lot of interest from a variety of sectors. We have made extensive investments to offer Mamut One, which combines the power and advantages of business software applications together with web-based solutions. Mamut One will better serve our customers by providing a feature rich, seamless solution that can be fully integrated and available online anywhere.” says Luke Buckley, Country Manager for Mamut Ireland.
Mamut is well positioned for further growth and improved results in all markets. The company continues to maintain its focus on establishing and strengthening strategic alliances with international partners and increasing the distribution of Mamut’s products and services. The company sees considerable growth potential following the launch of Mamut One, in combination with existing customer bases from companies whom Mamut has previously acquired.
