Day-Timer, the world-renowned maker of personal productivity tools, wanted to increase its own productivity by reducing costs - including the U.S.$725,000 annual cost of the mainframe on which it ran its business. The company migrated its ERP software to Windows Server and the Microsoft .NET Framework, using tools from Alchemy Solutions. The result cut costs by 94 percent. As a bonus, batch processing is 10 percent faster and developers are 25 percent more responsive to business needs.
