Shriram Transport chooses IBM to collaborate in the Cloud

25 Aug 2011 Mumbai - Shriram Transport Finance Company Ltd., India's largest commercial vehicle financing company, has chosen IBM Cloud computing technology to transform the way their field sales team communicates.

With 488 service centres and offices, and more than 16,000 employees and growing, Shriram Transport Finance needed a communications and email solution that could accommodate rapid growth and provide immediate access to their growing mobile sales team.

The company chose IBM Cloud e-mail, LotusLive iNotes, to ensure all of its field sales reps had access to reliable e-mail that can be accessed on the road, at their desk and from their mobile devices. LotusLive iNotes is lightweight, easy to use, and requires no client software or in-depth training; all that's needed is a web browser.

"Shriram employees are using LotusLive iNotes to stay connected and up to date in the Cloud, even on the go, ensuring that they can respond to sales opportunities quickly", stated Sendil Kumar, AVP - IT, Shriram Transport.

"IBM is continuing to help organisations become social businesses and achieve greater efficiency by leveraging cloud technology", stated Bethann Cregg, Vice President, IBM Collaboration Solutions.

Because it supports standard email protocols, LotusLive iNotes e-mail can be accessed using the native software on most smart phones including the iPhone, as well as BlackBerry and Android devices. LotusLive iNotes, available for $3 USD per user/per month, includes e-mail, calendar and contact management capabilities, and is hosted in IBM's scalable, security-rich, public Cloud.

Other IBM clients benefiting from the IBM LotusLive collaboration Cloud in India include Paragon Footwear and Minilec Industries, among others.
