PRODUCT AND SERVICE OFFERING: Using our flagship product, Joyner X (FLATWRAP machine) in combination with the latest fleet of VW commercial vans, MMPD is able to develop a customised distribution model, which offers timely, efficient, reliable and accurate delivery of publishers products 24/7. MMPD has made a significant investment in the development of a rich library of reusable distribution outlets. This library offers significant advantages when developing a custom manifest for a targeted demographic or publication. Market tested Each manifest produced by MMPD is the result of market demand. The requirements are researched, developed and refined in conjunction with one or more clients to ensure each model is functionally complete. Production proven Every manifest in the MMPD library is a component of one or more model requirements. As a result, the model is solid and functionality is complete. Decreased time to market The manifest library has been developed over a period of 48months (and approx 24,000 labour hours). As a result, MMPD clients dont pay to re-invent the wheel. The distribution model is developed faster and of higher quality with a higher Return on Investment (ROI) in a shorter period of time. Minimised project risk The risk associated with distribution development and implementation is typically very high. In addition the result is often a high rate of project failure and cost overruns. These risks are mitigated through a proven, repeatable processes and the use of proven returns and collection methods. Inexpensive to maintain Due to the basic database design of the Microsoft Excell manifest library, adding new locations or deleting closed outlets is a basic function. Adding new pages, additional The information contained in this proposal is considered CONFIDENTIAL and is not intended for distribution. Copyright 2012 MMPD P/L. 7

Functionally complete With few exceptions and for most applications, databases can be used as is to deliver complete functionality. MMPDs design and distribution management team is proficient in design platforms for the creation of distribution outlets to suit specific markets or demographics. METHODOLOGY MMPD utilises a five-step methodology to create timely, effective and efficient distribution solutions. The methodology established a solid foundation for a common understanding of the project approach and enables the disciplined delivery of the solution in structured, manageable phases. While the overall methodology remains the same, processes and deliverables are customised within the methodology to meet each project or clients individual objectives. The five steps of the methodology are known as DISCOVERY, DEFINITION, DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT and DEPLOYMENT. DISCOV DEFINITI DESIGN DEVELOP DEPLOY DISCOVERY Discovery is the process of identifying areas of opportunity based upon certain criteria. Often, in smaller engagements, Discovery and Definition result in a response such as this to a request for a proposal. In larger engagements, Discovery may be a single, distinct phase, which in turn leads to the definition of multiple projects. KEY ACTIVITIES: Interview executive sponsor to identify key objectives. Document, prioritise, and group key objectives. Interview key stakeholders to gain business and market context Identify executive sponsor, project lead. KEY DELIVERABLES: MMPD understanding of client business and market conditions MMPD/ client analysis of key objectives, general approach and expected outcomes Contact information for executive sponsors, project leads The information contained in this proposal is considered CONFIDENTIAL and is not intended for distribution.

This is accomplished through a series of key stakeholder interviews, which provide a balanced; complete understanding of the clients issues, directive, challenges, and/ or opportunities. The result is a document outlining MMPDs understanding of the situation, a high level approach to a solution, and the expected results. Client acknowledgement is required prior to proceeding with the engagement. DEFINITION The definition phase is intended to organise and prioritise objectives as well as establish scope for the project. In smaller engagements, all or a portion of the Definition phase may be completed in conjunction with the Design phase, resulting in a response such as this to a request for a proposal.
