Abstract: BOC Gases, provider of gas products and services world-wide, has upgraded to SydneyPLUS' ASP solution.

(Vancouver, Canada ? February 27, 2007) BOC Gases, provider of gas products and services world-wide, has upgraded to SydneyPLUS' ASP solution.

BOC Gases chose SydneyPLUS to host the application because the solution:

  • eliminated expense of owning a server without compromising their data security
  • lowered their total cost of ownership
  • provides regular upgrades, applied automatically at no cost

BOC Gases' library staff is relatively small, and under their old environment they shared responsibility for the system with their IT staff. This made them an excellent candidate for ASP, since many of these duties could now be assumed by SydneyPLUS staff.

"They did have some initial concerns regarding the security of their data, since it would be stored here and be accessible online" says Jeff Jones, Data Conversion Specialist for SydneyPLUS International, "We worked closely with their IT department until we had a custom solution that they were comfortable with."

Recently merged with Linde AG, BOC Gases has a 120-year history of customer service, and continues to operate globally. The expanded company operates in 70 countries, employs 53,000 people and has annual sales of $16.7 billion US.
