Overview

When Oxford University Press needed a recovery solution it could rely on to keep its books on the shelves, Sungard AS ensured there was a happy ending.

The world-renowned publishing house Oxford University Press (OUP) was established in the 15th century and today has a presence in over 50 countries. Part of Oxford University, its authoritative publications have a reputation for excellence and academic rigour.

For more than ten years OUP has relied on Sungard AS to keep its core systems running. The most important of these handles its most critical business processes from order processing and stock control to warehouse management and invoicing. IT Infrastructure Manager David Weston comments, “Our most important business functions rely on us having our systems up and running – paper-based manual processes could never be an effective substitute. Sungard’s Recovery Services ensure this is never an issue.”

The capital outlay involved in putting in the hardware, not to mention keeping it patched and maintained, would cost considerably more than our Sungard contract.
