Versko Launch Lotus Notes/Domino Outsource Service

Versko has signed a partnership agreement with brightsolid, Scotland’s leading supplier of Microsoft outsource services for Exchange and associated products, to provide Lotus based offerings. Lotus eMail and collaboration products such as Notes and Domino, Sametime and Quickr have a 40% market share and due to the rich application development environment customers often have significant investment in mission critical applications built on Lotus technologies. By combining the lower cost of outsourcing with the expertise in the Lotus and wider IBM product sets, Versko and brightsolid are able to offer outsource services for eMail, collaboration and applications on both the Lotus and Microsoft platforms. Richard Higgs, Managing Director of brightsolid Online Technology comments “I am delighted with this new partnership with Versko. Lotus technology is such a large and important part of the market, especially with larger organisations. Versko is synonymous with Lotus and IBM in Scotland and we have created a strong and compelling service for organisations many of whom have invested in IBM and Lotus technologies over many years. brightsolid and Versko can drive real value from these investments and help organisations to embrace and leverage the outsource model to their maximum benefit” Rob Walker, Managing Director of Versko adds “We are delighted with the partnership with brightsolid. I have known Richard for many years and look forward to the success of this new initiative. By leveraging brightsolid’s expertise gained in the Microsoft outsource service we are able to add Lotus based solutions to the offering and cover over 90% of the market for outsource solutions of this nature.”
