New business case : High street brand Cassis Paprika, strong of 105 shops in Belgium, offers prêt-à-porter garments targeting active women in their thirties. The aim has always been very clear for the company: to give its clients the best service they can get in the market. To do this, it has relied heavily on its IT solutions... yet without the use of an IT department ! Doesn't this sound like an impossible paradox?
Instead of having to manage these services internally, Cassis Paprika has chosen to externalise them, thereby addressing concerns about security and availability. For instance with their HP LeftHand virtual storage solution deployed by Waslet IT.
New business case : The Messer Group is one of the leading industrial gas companies, operating over 60 companies throughout Europe, Asia and Peru and employing around 5.000 employees worldwide. The company’s Belgian facility called on the services of leading systems integrator and services provider WASLET IT and Canon’s consultancy team, to introduce a new highly automated invoicing solution in their existing ERP. Canon’s IRISCapture™ invoicing solution significantly increased operational efficiencies within the accounting department, reducing manual errors and increased processing speed while meeting the objectives of saving both time and money.
New business case : When the caring personnel of the “Clinique et Maternité Sainte Elisabeth” can gain time doing their administrative tasks, all the benefits are for the patients. Waslet IT implements an IT tool that helps realize this ambition. The paramedical personnel takes care of the input of the different activities or observations. Previously, this input was done on laptops in the rooms of the medical staff. It didn’t take long to realize that this wasn’t optimal and that the caring personnel had to travel too much between the patient’s room and their own staff room. Today, “thin client” terminals have been installed in the hallways. Thanks to this, the number of entry points has multiplied and the caring personnel can input the data as soon as they leave the patient’s room. The gain in time is considerable, time that can now be spent on the patient.
New business case : IT on wheels at FEBIAC ! The Belgian federation of car and cycling industry decides to review its IT infrastructure thoroughly. 10 out of 45 FEBIAC people work in the IT department. Jean-Luc Malfait, Data Services Manager at FEBIAC : “Our data treatment capacity is extremely important, it’s our core business. The services that we offer to our members are getting more and more diversified. They constantly evolve with the changes in technology and society, more specifically everything around environmental issues. We need reliable, flexible and energy efficient tools. The management of the disk space wasn’t optimal, there were issues with the backups, development didn’t go smoothly because all servers were aimed at production and the control of the 7 maintenance contracts was pretty heavy on the administration. A request for proposal was made and 6 possible suppliers were asked to respond to this request. Waslet IT Services & Solutions was the winning supplier.

New business case : A new infrastructure for better centralized and secured data at KESAR. With over 50 persons in Belgium and 15 independent agents in different countries, Kesar (‘Mais il est où le Soleil ?’) is the second largest growing company in its category which is prêt-à-porter. The company moved to a new location in the capital. This was the ideal moment to align the IT to this new situation. The goal was to centralize the data which was scattered over different servers into one location, an HP MSA 2000 SAN. WASLET IT also took advantage of the new cabling to implement a new HP Procurve network switch. This combination of SAN/Switch brought a real boost in performance for all persons at Kesar needing access to this data. Waslet IT also proposed a modified storage solution. The data are saved on the SAN before being transferred to an HP StorageWorks LTO library.
New Business Case : WASLET IT steers the PSA HNN print infrastruct ure into calm waters. PSA HNN is part of PSA International, one of the top-ranked companies in container handling.

In conjunction with HP and WASLET IT, PSA HNN completed an ambitious consolidation project in which the original 586 printers were replaced by 210 HP machines with only 8 different types. This has made central remote management possible and costs have become more transparent.

The solution consists of 4 HP Proliant DL servers (SQL, Backup, File & Mail) and 1 HP MSA2000 SAN. The partner takes care of the migration of the existing data and applications, and also the installation of the Exchange 2007 mailsystem.
New business Case : It’s because continuity is so important to Deloitte that they decided a few years ago together with HP and WASLET to realize an ambitious project around server consolidation and disaster recovery. Earlier this year, they started looking for a backup solution for e.g. their Microsoft SharePoint Server, Microsoft Exchange Server and their file and print servers. The first and easiest choice to be made was to opt for the combination HP-WASLET.
