Triumph Precision, became an Automation Access client in 1988 when we installed a 20-MHz 386 server running Novell NetWare ELS. Recently, we upgraded their NetWare to 5.0 on a new server (for Y2K compliance) and replaced the coax network cable with 10BaseT as part of their move to a new building.

Server Triumph's NetWare 5.0 server is a Pentium retired from desktop service. Too slow for today's Windows, its performance as a NetWare server is more than adequate.

With almost no office staff, and a DOS based manufacturing package (JobBoss), Triumph isn't on the upgrade bandwagon, freeing capital for income generating machinery. One computer in the back office runs Windows95, part time, making a for a very low maintenance system.

The highly competitive nature of this business requires efficient operation and close attention to expenses.
