OS/400

based ERP
software. The Commack, New York, company decided to replace its dated DOS
-
based accounting system
as part of a drive to eliminate paper
-
intensive business processes and
to
ensure time
ly and compliant
shipments to major retailers. Terk considered implementing a Windows

based ERP systems before
company officials realized how much downtime that would entail compared
with
an iSeries.
"
When you

re
trying to meet supply chain requirements an
d you get a three
-
hour block of time in the middle of your day
when you can
'
t access the system, it becomes very troublesome,
"

says Mike Bitonti, vice president of
finance for Terk.
"
One thing that wasn
'
t debatable was the fact that an iSeries unit would p
rovide the least
amount of downtime. Even
Windows
NT side advocates recognized that.
"

After installing
Vormittag
'
s
System 2000 ERP system on an iSeries server, Terk sales representatives gained the capability to enter and
track orders over the Internet.
