Chatsworth stages IT seminar

Chatsworth Computers, author of Merlin Business Software, reports that its IT seminar at the Casa Hotel, Chesterfield on Wednesday 12 October was a great success. The event offered local businesses and existing customers the opportunity to meet with Chatsworth and its vendor partners to explore the latest hot topics in IT.

The theme of the seminar was how to help businesses run more efficiently and profitably during the current economic climate, with investment in modern IT solutions.

A number of guest speakers addressed the seminar. Firstly, Chris Bones of Fujitsu UK spoke on the subject of cloud computing and explored the various services available to businesses looking to benefit from this technology. Following on, Chatsworth’s own senior networking specialist, John Barber, gave a presentation regarding 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, with tremendous results.

The benefits of a complete business software solutions over bolt- together ‘off the shelf’ packages were outlined by Chatsworth’s sales and marketing director, Ashley Jones, whilst 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 Ltd, 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.
