We looked into various solutions in terms of a new Windows user interface for our TRYGG/2000 software. A modern look was one of the major parameters in our choice. At the same time, we also need to provide our customers with increased functionality through the interface. Our final choice includes both these elements; it is completely modern and has functionality that will deliver added value to our customers. Another important reason for our decision is that the solution has a proven track record and is already widely used with systems of similar technology. We are confident that our customers will appreciate the IBS User Interface and benefit, for years to come, from its future development, says Ola Petersson, Managing Director of SYSteam Retail Helsingborg.
SYSteam has secured the right to implement the IBS User Interface in a strategic deal entered into with IBS and will be able to offer the solution to many of their customers in the retail industry.
The agreement with SYSteam is of strategic importance since it further strengthens IBS focus on open applications with the Java technology. SYSteam Retail is one of the leading Nordic suppliers of solutions for the Retail Industry, with their software solution based on TRYGG/2000. We look forward to continuing to develop excellent results together, says Henrik Stache, SVP Technocoly & Services at IBS.
With the Java User Interface from IBS, SYSteam will be able to continue their delivery of world-class solutions. The deal also includes the possibility for SYSteam to resell and implement IBS Enterprise Financials with the same look and feel. This is a good opportunity for SYSteam to open up new geographical markets where IBS has already localized their software with domestic legal requirements and languages.
