In January last year US bicycle manufacturer, Cannondale purchased Pager/Control for their two iSeries systems in the European Head Office at Oldenzaal. Pager/Control had been running some weeks already in a pilot installation and on a number of occasions had proved its worth by informing the system manager of a potential problem in time to solve it before valuable production time was lost.

In December 2005 ING Commercial Finance installed Pager/Control on the iSeries system at their Bunnik offices.

Tom Hijman, head of systems and network management at ING Commercial Finance chose Pager/Control because "We want staff (whether in the house or "on call") to be notified by mail or SMS when a problem occurs in our core systems, so they are able to take timely action. This action must be taken not only, in a reactive way but also in a pro-active way where staff are notified on, for example, disk capacity reaching predefined thresholds.
