• Staff&Line UK signs a major new deal with Moss Bros to install its market leading IT management solution, EasyVista

St Albans, UK, 10th December 2007: Staff&Line UK, the UK division of one of the leading publishers of IT Management software solutions, certified by Pink Elephant as ITIL compatible has won a new contract with the household male clothing brand, Moss Bros. Over the coming weeks Moss Bros will be implementing EasyVista across 170 sites in the UK including its Head Office and main distribution centre.

Moss Bros has purchased EasyVista Express which includes Discovery, Usage, Asset Management, Change Management, Service Management and a Self Service Portal. EasyVista will manage over 3,000 IT assets from desktop PCs to mobile phones. The implementation will start in December with phase one completing by the end of January 2008.

Brett Gobler, IT Manager for Moss Bros explains: “At the cornerstone of the Moss Bros brand is our distinguished heritage – this is one of the reasons customers come back to us time and again. We are a very dynamic and forward-looking organisation and it is because of this that we knew we needed to review our IT requirements and upgrade to a much better solution to meet the demands of the business. EasyVista is one of the few products on the market that integrates all IT management needs in one solution. Many other products that we looked at had one or two modules but needed complex integration with one another. The great thing is that EasyVista is based on ITIL best practices and processes which will help us to implement an ITIL framework into our organisation.”

The Moss Bros brand has been synonymous with quality and value in fine clothing for men, for well over a century. The Group's unparalleled reputation in formal menswear and unrivalled commitment to customer service sets it apart in a world that demands only the best. As an organisation that is committed to delivering premier products to its customers, when it came to sourcing an IT management solution to help support its implementation of the ITIL framework into the organisation Moss Bros found that EasyVista was the best solution in the market. In particular EasyVista will help Moss Bros to adopt new ITIL practices in areas such as the service desk, change management and asset management. EasyVista is 100 percent browser-based, ITIL compatible, fully integrated and modular solution. The latest version of the product, EasyVista 2007, which was announced earlier in the year, also features a new Configuration Management Database module (CMDB).

This win follows hot on the heels of other new UK deals such as Azzurri Communications (announced in September) and a worldwide cosmetic brand (announced in August) and provides a powerful demonstration of how well EasyVista is being received in the UK market.

Gregory Lefort, Managing Director, Staff&Line UK comments: “We have been operating in this market for just under a year and our profile is changing from being viewed as a challenger to a leader in the Service Management market. More and more companies are realising that most Service Desk tools are failing to deliver value, when they operate in isolation to the IT assets. In the last 2 months alone we have won four new deals against very established local competition, for the same reasons Moss Bros has chosen EasyVista. Watch this space, there are plenty more announcements to come between now and the end of the year!”
