TALLAHASSEE – February 28, 2002 -- Florida First Capital Finance Corporation (FFCFC) introduced its staff to Bynari Insight Server today. Florida First Capital intends to deploy the groupware product for its mail and messaging services in the corporate office on an IBM xSeries server hosted at Mainline Information Systems.

Florida First Capital, which is a lending institution chartered for the primary purpose of advancing the economic development and general welfare of the citizens of the State of Florida by assisting the growth and development of small business concerns within the state, was previously using Microsoft Exchange to manage its communications. Todd G. Kocourek, CEO for Florida First Capital Finance Corporation, says Bynari offers a unique migration opportunity.

“This is a great opportunity for us to offer improved services,” said Kocourek. “The circumstances are perfect, too. We can move forward without making changes on the client side. So our users can continue to use Microsoft Outlook, a product they are familiar with. And we get to use the power, and flexibility of Linux. Also, we get the backing of Mainline Information Services and IBM.”

Communication is key at Florida First Capital. They have greatly increased loan volume and have been recognized by SBA for their lending activity and for their lending assistance to minority, rural and women-owned small businesses. The loan portfolio now exceeds million, and the total population served by Florida First Capital exceeds 11.5 million people.

Not only is Mainline excited to work with Florida First Capital, they are enthusiastic about their relationship with Bynari. The Insight Server solution gives Linux its first complete messaging and collaboration solution for organizations of all sizes as well as those with high performance, interoperability and functionality requirements. Insight Server runs under commercial LINUX distributions, supported by IBM, providing RFC email and collaboration standards and exploiting the benefits of commercial Unix/Linux platforms. Insight offers interoperability among these different platforms and provides a bridge between Unix/Linux workstations and Microsoft Outlook desktops.

“Bynari’s Insight Server and experience adds a fundamental element to our Linux strategy,” says Rick Kearney, Mainline’s CEO. “With this solution in hand, we are able to provide our customers a cost effective value proposition in the messaging and collaboration space so needed in today’s business environment. This solution positions us to offer Linux solutions across the enterprise to help bring down IT costs and increase productivity.”
