Datatec Will Rely on e-Deploy for Project Coordination
The Agreement Targets 20,000 - 25,000 Sites/Devices Over the Next 12 Months
FAIRFIELD, N.J., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Datatec Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: DATC) today announced that it has been selected by IBM to provide deployment for IBM's Network Services offering. This new agreement is the result of a six-month pilot test period between IBM and Datatec Systems, Inc. IBM and Datatec have entered into an agreement to allow its associates and clients to rely on e-Deploy.com software for the management of all Datatec related network deployments. In addition, Datatec has made e-Deploy available as an ASP offering to IBM account teams for other engagements, not involving Datatec's services.
The estimated business target would allow Datatec to be engaged in projects that would be in the 20,000 to 25,000 sites/devices range over the next 12 months.
By using Datatec's Rapid Network Deployment Services, IBM plans to supplement its network solutions, helping customers achieve faster rates of return on their network technology investments. IBM Global Services personnel now will have direct access to Datatec's web-based e-Deploy solution, which provide pricing and assessment, project planning and design, project coordination, asset management, hardware/software configuration and integration with installation of selected IBM networking solutions.
The purpose of Datatec's e-Deploy.com is to gather, manage and share all of the design elements and project-related information that comprise any deployment project. Datatec has incorporated its years of experience and powerful assessment, design and automated configuration tools into an easy to use and well organized web-based methodology. Datatec's e-Deploy.com web-based system significantly improves the process for customers to rapidly deploy their hardware and software solutions, while reducing employed resources.
"We have moved from conventional, manual approaches to an Internet-based delivery solution called e-Deploy," said Ron Frey, Datatec's Vice President Strategic Alliances. "Our process relies on automated systems based on proven methodologies providing mass customized configurations. This flexibility significantly reduces the barriers to implementing large-scale, complex deployments in short periods of time."
