Chatsworth seminar shows how to invest in profitable IT
Published: 20 October, 2011
DERBYSHIRE: Chatsworth Computers' recent IT seminar in Chesterfield focused on helping merchants run more efficient and profitable businesses through investment in modern IT solutions.
Chatsworth, authors of Merlin Business Software, said the event brought together merchants and companies to discuss hot topics of the day. A number of guest speakers expanded on topics like cloud computing, the benefits of the use of virtualisation technologies to help companies reduce their business IT cost and provide affordable 'high-availability' computing solutions where downtime 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.
The benefits of a complete business software solution over a bolt-together 'off- the-shelf' packages were outlined by Chatsworth's sales and marketing director, Ashley Jones, while a presentation of the company's wide range of hosted business services was given by Chatsworth's engineering department manager, Martin Williams.
The final presentation was given by Steve Holdstock, managing director of LeaseMaster on the benefits of financing capital IT purchases to allow business to take the benefit of the technology from day one while spreading the cost over a manageable period and avoiding the use of existing lines of credit.
The seminar also proved to be a networking event for Chatsworth and its customers.
The seminar's co-sponsored prize draw of a Fujitsu notebook computer was won by Richard Tennant of The Tennant Group, Nottingham. The draw was made by Chatsworth Computer's executive chairman, Andrew Wilson.
