31 July 2008, London: BHW Systems has announced today a highly unusual approach in the IT industry in a deal with IN-COM Data Systems of Dallas. BHW Systems will now offer Smart TS XL with a money back guarantee if the customer doesn’t get a 100% return on investment (ROI) in the first year. The product has been in use with major corporates in North America for many years and the guarantee is a reflection of the company’s absolute confidence in the performance of the product. BHW Systems also announced today that it has become the exclusive European distributor of SMART TS XL in a deal with IN-COM Data Systems of Dallas, Texas.

Smart TS XL is an enterprise search solution and has a spectacular record of ROI in North America where it has been measured with significant - and at times spectacular - reductions in MIPS usage in mainframe environments and considerable savings in development staff time and resources in all environments.

With a strong track record of developing businesses in the IT industry, Ian Hillier-Brook, managing director of BHW Systems, has recently negotiated the European distribution rights with IN-COM Data Systems of Dallas, Texas, to market and support SMART TS XL.

SMART TS XL is a web-based, lightning-fast search and analysis toolset able to search, cross-reference and hyperlink billions of data items regardless of format, including source code, databases, documents and other types of data storage across different platforms in mere seconds.

The specialist application is designed to lower the risk and impact of change management by having the ability to view and scrutinize massive amounts of code, documents, data and content in a fraction of the usual time. In North America SMART TS XL is already a proven and invaluable tool for learning new systems, converting legacy systems, reverse engineering, software consolidation following mergers and acquisitions, etc.

Says Hillier-Brook: “I was so impressed with the speed, power and flexibility of SMART TS XL that I decided that I wanted to market it in Europe. Its ability to locate any information and provide outstanding cost savings is unrivalled. We have numerous examples of the successes achieved by clients in the US and I’m delighted to be able to offer it on this side of the Atlantic. “Finally,” adds Hillier-Brook, “institutions have an IT tool capable of searching and interrogating every nook and cranny of the enterprise!”

“We have some very impressive results from US firms that are using SMART TS XL,” says Mike Blakey, operations director of BHW. “For example, a major US airline took only 6 hours to complete a task using SMART TS XL that would have taken 116 hours previously; a major pharmaceutical company loading source code into IBM Websphere was still not finished after 9 weeks, but took less than 5 hours with SMART TS XL. A leading bank was facing a bill of $40,000 and 3 weeks to process changes to standard documents called by a number of programs, but was able to reduce this to $50 and complete the job in just 30 minutes using our software. These are such spectacular results that I defy any institution to find a more efficient enterprise search system than SMART TS XL.”

Hillier-Brook concludes, “We chose SMART TS XL because we believe that it is the best software of this type on the market. The fact that it saves both time and money makes it a great incentive, especially in the current climate. IN-COM’s US clients quickly achieved major cost savings and improvements in efficiency and I expect European companies will see numerous opportunities to save time and money and take advantage of the immediate benefits offered by the product.”
