Go-Live in record time at highest circulation, free daily newspaper in Austria
AHVV Verlags GmbH makes its free daily newspaper "Today" available on [advantage] ® software/implementation completed in less than two months

Braunschweig/Vienna, July 2014. All is good in Austria! With immediate effect, the highest circulation free newspaper in Austria, "Today", with a daily national circulation of 623,000 copies, is now available on innovative software from HUP.

In less than two months of project time, German IT specialists implemented the [advantage]® publishing software for the AHVV Verlags GmbH publisher, for their advertising management, CRM and accounts receivable business areas. Due to the complete replacement of the existing system, the processes are now less time-consuming and thus more efficient. As a result, quoting and ordering for example, in the future will take place within a single system, and no longer in a complicated, duplicated, manual way.

As part of the technical implementation, the project staff, under Dirk Martens-Bimberg, also had to take into account some special features. Thus, in addition to a general form of advertising tax which exists only in Austria, the vast number of individual titles had to be catered for in the HUP system. "A major go-live for us, which showcases the extraordinary flexibility of [advantage]®," says Dirk Martens-Bimberg. "I thank AHVV and the whole team for the extremely fast and focused implementation. Through automation of many processes, the workflow has been significantly improved."

Distribution of the "Today" newspapers takes place via some 3,500 withdrawal boxes in Vienna, Lower Austria, Upper Austria and Burgenland, in Vienna underground stations, bakeries, hospitals and public places, amongst others. The free daily newspaper reaches nearly a million readers. The AHVV publisher related popular web portal, also paves the way for the HUP software in the commercial sector of the future.
