Jiffy International chooses WatServ Cloud Computing solution for better reliability, higher performance and more flexibility.

Waterloo Managed Software Services USA Inc (WatServ) announced today that it has completed a multiple-year agreement with Jiffy International to provide a comprehensive Cloud Computing solution for its critical business systems. WatServ will be transitioning Jiffy’s computer systems running on aging customer-owned infrastructure in Norway to WatServ’s high-performance Cloud Infrastructure and Services running in its Flint, Michigan data center. The solution includes computing services for several hundred users of Microsoft Dynamics AX, Exchange and SharePoint as well as providing computing services for hosted desktops and several legacy applications.

Jiffy was using the services of a local hosting provider but the reliability and performance of their critical business applications was becoming a problem, said Tom Doerner, president of WatServ. WatServ’s per-user-per-month pricing model also made it possible for Jiffy to make the cost of IT variable.

WatServ’s solution allows Jiffy to avoid spending cash on replacing obsolete infrastructure while improving the performance and reliability of our critical business systems, reported Dagfinn Andersen, Executive Vice President of Jiffy. WatServ’s experience, support and technologies were factors in the decision to change from a local supplier.
