What did FreeStyle-400 provide for Budget Insurance Services?
Performance, security, flexibility and ease of development
"We spent a considerable amount of time looking for the most efficient way to develop an application that could
process car insurance quote requests over the internet and link seamlessly to our award-winning computer systems
based on the IBM iSeries - AS/400e and DB2/400 database. We contacted MERISIS to develop the application, powered by
FreeStyle-400, to deliver performance, security, flexibility and ease of development. In time we plan to involve
all of our RPG developers in the process which means that they can all participate in web development. This is
achieved easily by the short learning curve and ease of use offered by FreeStyle-400."
Enhanced security and results delivered, not just promised
"We measured the end results, particularly response times, against required standards. By the end of the development
phase we managed to deliver very favourable response times, no mean feat given the amount of data held in our
database. The security and infrastructure provided by the new iSeries complemented the enhanced security available
in FreeStyle-400 to satisfy our business requirements."
