Merlin Business Software of Chesterfield report that their IT Seminar at the Casa Hotel Chesterfield on Wednesday 12th October 2011 was a tremendous success.
The event offered local businesses and existing customers the opportunity to meet with Chatsworth Computers and its vendor partners to explore the latest hot topics in IT.
The theme of the seminar was how to help business run more efficiently and profitably during the current economic climate, with the investment in modern IT solutions.
A number of guest speakers addressed the seminar; the first was Chris Bones of Fujitsu UK who spoke on the subject of Cloud Computing and explored the various different services available to businesses looking to benefit from this technology.
Following on, Merlin’s own Senior Networking Specialist, John Barber gave a compelling presentation regarding the benefits of the use of Virtualization technologies to help companies reduce their business IT cost and provide affordable “high-availability” computing solutions where down time cannot be considered.
Bright Masih, Sales Director of sales-i gave an overview of how his company’s sales intelligence software solutions can highlight and unlock sales opportunities within ERP software data, with tremendous results.
The benefits of a complete business software solution over a bolt-together “off the shelf” packages were outlined by Merlin’s Sales and Marketing Director, Ashley Jones, whilst a presentation of the company’s wide range of hosted business services was given by Merlin’s Engineering Department Manager, Martin Williams.
Other presentations were given by Liam Wood of Nottingham-based web design specialists Wida Group on the latest in dynamic E-commerce solutions, Matthew Thomas of Kerio spoke on the subject of cost effective network communications and security control software, whilst Ian Simpson of Active Voice and Data outlined the benefit of hosted VOIP Telephony solutions and methods of utilising modern SmartPhones as mobile extensions to a head office phone system.
The final presentation was given by Steve Holdstock, Managing Director of LeaseMaster Limited on the benefits of financing capital IT purchases allowing business to take the benefit of the technology from day one whilst spreading the cost over a manageable period and avoiding the use of existing lines of credit.
The seminar also proved to be a good networking event for Merlin, their customers and the contributing vendor partners with many follow-up meetings scheduled on the day.
The Seminar’s prize draw of a new Fujitsu Notebook Computer was won by Mr. Richard Tennant of The Tennant Group, Nottingham. The prize was co-sponsored by Merlin Business Software and Fujitsu UK. The draw was made by Merlin’s Executive Chairman, Mr. Andrew Wilson.
