Following consultation with Strategic Pegasus Support Partner Intsys UK, Keltbray Ltd, a Pegasus CISSupport Client, decided that it would be beneficial to upgrade their current version of Pegasus CIS to the SQL variant, thus providing the potential to retain more historical data, benefit from enhanced performance and many other enhancements. With over 55 users spread across 5 companies - downtime for Keltbray was not an option.The CIS data set was over 3GB in size and as such conversion times for the software were not known and it was felt that an “out of hours” installation was the most suitable way to successfully complete the project.
It was essential to test every element of the upgrade process as there would not be time on site to investigate any issues. The Intsys UKPegasus CIS Support team took a complete snapshot of the data offsite and tested every scenario of the upgrade process, keepingKeltbray informed at every step. Working as a team on and off siteIntsys were able to begin the project at 5pm in the afternoon and work through the evening whilst the users were away. By morning the users had been upgraded and there was minimal downtime.
Time on site was spent ensuring that the users were able to access key business functions and also were able to print, save and process as they had been used to in the previous version of Pegasus CIS.The project was deemed a success and Keltbray are now enjoying an enhanced user experience and have suffered practically no loss of production. This is down to sensible planning and proactive communication between the Intsys and Keltbray support teams.

With support from Pegasus Platinum Partner, Intsys, Absolute Marketing went live with Opera 3 at the beginning of March and are already reaping benefits through improved productivity and better management reporting.
