"We’ve reduced our support costs; we’re keeping a tight lid on inventory and resolving incidents more quickly, and with Fujitsu we have a virtual organization that can expand and contract ensuring rapid onsite support. This makes my life easier and allows me to focus on more strategic objectives"
Tim Guyer, CIO, Saint-Gobain North America
