Work Together, Better With IBM Lotus Domino

Work Together, Better With IBM Lotus Domino

In business, strong, effective communication is key. It’s likely you’ll have several projects on the go at once, with multiple parties collaborating from several different locations, so it’s important you have the infrastructure in place to facilitate effective, secure collaborative working.

Your projects will no longer stagnate or bottleneck – everyone gets access to everything and everyone they need, any time they need it.

A ‘greener’ way to work

Life IT upgrade Doble’s IBM AS400 Server

Doble Quality Foods Ltd recently needed to upgrade their IT system:

to make internal processes and reporting quicker and more efficient, but had
concerns about the cash outlay that upgrading the system would normally
entail. By working with IBM Global Finance, Life IT were able to replace
Doble’s older IBM AS400 model 250 server running V5R3 to a System i Power 7 720
server running the latest version of the operating system. The payment was
spread over a 12 month period thereby providing Doble with a state of the
art system without the upfront financial outlay.

Ian Doble, Managing Director of Doble Quality Foods Ltd says: “We would
have found it very difficult to put the money to a new IT system rather
than, for example, a new truck in the current economic climate; spreading
the cost and getting the improved performance now makes a real difference
and allows improved productivity to contribute towards the cost. Life IT’s
ability to convert our software and show it running on their machine in
Manchester was a real clincher, and with the new system processes that
could take hours now take two or three minutes. Reports appear instantly
and day end now takes seconds leading to great improvements in
productivity.”

Life provides a wide range of technical consultancy services for all areas of System i. These services are delivered by our team of experienced IBM certified consultants ensuring you’re servers are resilient, secure and efficient.

To find out how Life IT and IBM Global Finance can help your business call
us today on +44 (0)1625 548111, email info@lifeit.co.uk or visit our
website www.lifeit.co.uk.
