What are the benefits of OBA?

Multiple orders

Use OBA to place multiple products on the same order. You can also speed up the ordering process by creating templates for future transactions.

Easy invoicing

Speed up your payment process and view current and paid invoices at the touch of a button. OBA holds 18 months of invoices online, so you’ll never need to re-order copies again. And you can easily pay your invoices online.

Accurate costs

If you manage Direct Mail via mailing houses, OBA will help you cost the mailing element of your campaign more accurately, making it easier to calculate return on investment.

Access control

Grant access to any of your employees and your mailing agents (e.g. your Mailing House) so they can order on your behalf – how you want, when you want.

Identify mailing patterns with these valuable reports:

  • Overview Reports – for volume and value summaries by account and product.
  • Sales Order Reports – for in-depth flexible reports with full sales order details.
  • Trend Analysis Reports – for additional information on contingency orders raised.
  • Invoice Reports – for sales order and service information for billing dates.
