Imagine how much your company could save if its major processing times decreased by 50% or more?

Processing Time Save Money

From a Perth suburban garage in 1993 to Australian’s second largest DSL Internet Service Provider, iiNet has experienced astounding growth.

The secret to this spectacular success has been iiNet's singular commitment to excellent customer service - through both their people and the tools they use to deliver this service.

Considering the dramatic expansion of their customer database, iiNet had to be nimble to ensure its IT services could support the growth.

With daily transaction volumes impacting business operations, a substantial performance improvement was required to reduce processing times and maintain system reliability.

iiNet needed a reliable and efficient solution, and IBM’s smart storage capabilities enabled us to deliver the appropriate solution that met our client’s key requirements.

Working closely with IBM, we were able to provide the scope around the storage platform and implementation services of IBM’s P series and V7000, accelerating access to stored information and improving database capabilities.

The results seen by iiNet are significant:
