Oasis 400 Plc, prominent UK-based systems integrator and wholly owned subsidiary of SoftLanding Systems, a leading provider of Software Management solutions for iSeries and multi-platform development, announced that it has formally changed its name to SoftLanding Europe Plc to align itself more closely with its parent company. The renaming follows SoftLanding Systems' acquisition of Oasis 400 Plc on Dec. 6, 2002, and represents another milestone in the two companies' 10-year partnership in providing reliable Software Management solutions to companies in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and several other markets in Europe and the Middle East.
In a related move, the two companies today unveiled a new Website for SoftLanding Europe, http://www.softlandingeurope.com/. In addition to reflecting its new branding, the Website contains substantial new content for SoftLanding Europe, including an area on WebSphere technology that offers free downloads of tools such as a Spooled File Plug-in for WebSphere Development Studio Client (WDSC) 5.0, and a toolset for managing WebSphere Application Server on the iSeries. The Website is managed using SoftLanding's flagship product, TurnOver Change Management.
"Our name change marks a significant point in our company's evolution," says Paul Thiel, Managing Director of SoftLanding Europe. "As part of a larger Software Management organization, we are now poised to deliver additional benefits to our customers. The new Website is just the beginning."
SoftLanding Systems Chairman Paul Schlieben concurs. "It's been gratifying to witness the deepening relationship between SoftLanding Systems and SoftLanding Europe, and the enthusiasm with which individuals share ideas and expertise to make both companies even more successful. In just a few short months, we've achieved a great deal together."
The two companies are planning further integration projects which will enable them to extend their worldwide technical support and to take advantage of their increased R&D capacity to continue evolving their Software Management offerings.
