Group Logic Offers Migration Path and Special Offer
Press release from the issuing company
August 6, 2003 -- (WhatTheyThink.com) -- Group Logic released a statement yesterday announcing a migration program for WAM!NET users to switch to MassTransit Enterprise via a competitive upgrade.
The move comes as WAM!NET announced that their commercial business would be acquired by SAVVIS. “Since the WAM!NET announcement, we have been contacted by many WAM!NET users who are concerned about the impact of the acquisition on their file transfer workflows,” said Andy Lewis, VP of Sales and Marketing. “There is a lot of uncertainty in the marketplace about how the acquisition will affect pricing, quality levels, and the future of the WAM!NET network.”
Lewis stated that MassTransit has been used to power file transfers through WAM!NET for five years. “Deploying MassTransit alongside WAM!NET provides an effective insurance policy for companies to maintain their file transfer workflows over either WAM!NET, the Internet, or private networks.”
As part of the competitive upgrade program, Group Logic is extending a special offer to WAM!NET customers who purchase MassTransit before September 30, 2003.
In a special report published at WhatTheyThink.com on August 5, WAM!NET's Richard Metcalf expressed confidence that the transition would be smooth. "We're very sensitive to the transition - not because we might lose business to another telco. We're more attentive about the transition as it relates to interrupting our customers' business processes - their work. We're being very diligent to hand-hold our customers onto a network that is faster, more 'state of the art' technologically, and with a wider global reach."
