  • Systems are configured to client's specifications before they ship. Systems are up and running much faster and with higher quality.
  • Systems no longer have to be rebuilt by client personnel eliminating required space at the client's location. Quality is improved as components are not exposed to the handling damage incurred during a rebuild.
  • Configurations are run through IBM configuration and validation processes and then tested in the final configuration eliminating the need for any changes during installation.
  • Improved risk management for the customer and account teams.
