FMI Products, LLC, is an industry-leader in the design and production of state-of-the-art gas and wood-fueled fireplace systems, complicating this was the fact that DESA's entire corporate IT system was running on an operating system that was three versions behind and residing on an aging IBM AS/400. Their challenges were limited implementation time, transfer of partial database from Bowling Green to new Santa Ana infrastructure and aging OS and originating server. To overcome these challenges they chose Mainline Information Systems. Mainline Professional Services for server installation, implementation and guidance on system integration was recommended. The benefits in which FMI industry attained were completely integrated business IT system with high-performance and service levels. Virtualization capabilities with configuration flexibility and scalability.
