"Our sales transactions systems already ran so quickly that the new IBM POWER9-based servers took response times of milliseconds and drove them down even further, But where we really notice a difference is when our employees run day-end processes like stock-taking. In that case, IBM Power Systems S914 servers reduced processing times from one hour 20 minutes to just five minutes.
Since we run them once stores are closed, it means that our staff can go home much sooner. They’re happier, and the risk of processes over-running and affecting the next day’s opening is smaller than ever.”
