With CSI, we have partnered one of the regions most respected, established and technically able IT systems and service providers.
Michael Hayes, Director of CSI (Ireland) Ltd, comments, Quite simply, IBS Integrator is an excellent product and we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring it to the Irish marketplace. As soon as companies see the massive benefits that can be gained from the application for a relatively low outlay, we are confident that they will be very keen to take it on. With many companies wary of investing too heavily in major new applications, IBS Integrator provides a rare combination of rapid return on investment and massive productivity and efficiency gains, without a huge capital expense. For companies who are under pressure to provide web applications integrated with their back-end stock, order and delivery systems etc. IBS Integrator is the perfect solution to provide these facilities in a time frame and at a price point that can bring substantial business value to many companies.
Oskar Ahlberg is IBSs Product Marketing Manager for IBS Integrator and he adds, Integration tools are rarely in the spotlight, despite the fact that they offer one of the most remarkable and rapid opportunities for real bottom line cost-savings and increased profitability for relatively little outlay in both time and money. The IBS Integrator product is firmly established within organisations throughout the world, including Volvo, Swedish National Bank and Maxell, all of whom can quote huge benefits and dramatic cost savings and efficiency gains.
Michael Hayes concludes, We work with some of the biggest names in the IT industry, including IBM, Microsoft and Cisco, and feel that IBS is an equally important relationship for us. The company has an excellent reputation throughout the world with customers that have been using its software for many, many years. Potential customers appreciate this sign of stability because it is a sure indication of quality product and first class support.
