News: Amdocs, whose ADSNG
family of products is the leading process automation platform among Yellow
Pages publishers, has formed an alliance with Nextron Communications,
a leading high-volume Web-site-publishing and e-commerce specialist. Together
they offer publishers an integrated suite of products designed to couple
Internet Yellow Pages operations more tightly with those of the core printed
As Amdocs Marketing Manager Eitan Gelbaum
explains, the new integrated solution "combines Amdocs' experience
in back office, customer database, sales, billing and financial systems
with Nextron's site-creation and -management tools and production expertise."
Bob Walatka, Nextron's vice president of
domestic sales, adds that the integration is being performed "to
provide a pre-configured, total solution to our mutual customers."
He added that this holistic approach is also well suited for companies
that do not yet employ software or services from either company.
