Menzies launches distribution app for mobiles

Menzies, the newspaper distribution specialist, has produced an app designed to allow retail staff to manage stock claims from the shop floor.

The i-Menzies app, which is available on iPhone, Android and Blackberry
devices, was downloaded by more than 500 retailers during a three month trial, and is  now being offered to all 12,000 independent customers.

The app is an extension of the full online service offered by i-Menzies which was developed six years ago to enable retailers to manage their accounts. Both online services are supported by Menzies Distribution Customer Services teams.

Menzies Distribution commercial director David Cooke said: “The number of retailers using our online service i-Menzies went up by a third in the last year, and users tell us that they enjoy the freedom of managing their own stock.”
