Challenge

BerkOne’s philosophy is to continually look for new efficiencies to improve competitive advantage. In examining ways to more effectively support their users, BerkOne saw an opportunity to reduce the costs of its current terminal emulator by replacing it with an emulator that offered greater functionality and was easier to deploy.

Richard Smith, BerkOne’s Technical Support Manager, runs a team that provides hardware, software, networks and security to all parts of the company. Some departments rely on terminal emulation for different applications and usage cases, spanning approximately 325+ users to support the following functions:

  • Earned Income Tax (accessing tax records)
  • Delinquent Tax (requires the most scripting, usage of macros)
  • Collections (similar to delinquent)
  • Collateral Management (vehicle title lookups)
Results
  • Significant cost savings of approximately 50%
  • Reduced deployment times by up to 80%
  • Redeployed company resources to help deliver new customer initiatives
