IBM secures first Lotus Foundations customer

Distributor CR Kennedy is the first local business to sign up for IBM’s all-in-one software appliance Lotus Foundation Start.

Designed for small to medium sized companies with five to 500 employees, the software enables organisations to focus on running their business rather than managing their IT systems.

The sale was made by IBM partner Rivett and Associates.

IBM Software sales specialist for Lotus, Chris Sparshott says the product is easy to use.

“Lotus Foundations can be deployed in under 30 minutes and provides the essential collaboration software required to power a small business. The appliance can accommodate from one to 500 users, so as a business expands to 75 or 300 users, there is no need to upgrade to more expensive and complex products, which often require the purchase of additional hardware,” says Sparshott.

Rivett Associates CEO Vaughan Rivett says as a service provider, Lotus Foundations gives him an advantage as it can be managed remotely.

“I can simply log in and fine-tune the solution from my office, rather than wasting valuable time and money sitting in traffic on my way to client sites.”
