The City of Leipzig makes a smooth transition to assyst

LeCoS GmbH, originally the company's internal IT Department, became a company in its own right I July 2002. It now provides information and communication technology services to more than 5000 customers in the public and private sector. 


These services range from the development of strategies for information and communication technology, procurement of hardware and software and the implementation of new solutions and processes. 


"Support was discontinued for our previous tool, Tivoli Service Desk and it was immediately evident that we needed a new tool. The time pressure was considerable, we needed a tool that could be implemented quickly", explained Service Manager, Dr. George Kostersitz. 


The new software had to meet the criteria set by LeCoS. An important factor in the decision was the conformity of the software with the Best Practice guidelines of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®). 


After undertaking market research, LeCoS selected asssyt by Axios Systems. One of assyst's main benefits is that it was designed from inception around the ITIL® guidelines. It also contains a transparent data model which enables the user to transfer existing databases very quickly. 


"The professional attitude of Axios' consultants during the implementation phase of the project have contributed significantly to its success", commented Dr Kostersitz. 


"assyst has dramatically improved our management reporting", Dr Kostersitz continued. "We can also identify weak points in our service and resolve them efficiently. This increases our credibility with our customers." 


"Our decision to implement assyst has proven to be extremely positive in every way" summed up Dr Kostersitz.
