Work Together, Better With IBM Lotus Domino
In business, strong, effective communication is key. It’s likely you’ll have several projects on the go at once, with multiple parties collaborating from several different locations, so it's important you have the infrastructure in place to facilitate effective, secure collaborative working.
IBM Lotus Domino has been chosen by businesses all around the world for this very purpose. And as well-established experts on IBM Lotus Domino, Life IT (www.lifeit.co.uk) help businesses UK-wide get Domino up and running smoothly and efficiently. Here are just some of the ways they think Domino could benefit your business...
Work anytime, from anywhere, with anyone
IBM Lotus Domino offers multi-platform business collaboration solutions. Email and instant messaging, file sharing, customer relationship management and web-based transactions can all be accomplished efficiently and easily.
Domino’s collaborative tools help you make better informed decisions faster and share information and ideas more efficiently. What’s more, Domino's workflow engine can help you streamline your approval processes – ideal if you require sign-off from several parties in several different locations. Your projects will no longer stagnate or bottleneck – everyone gets access to everything and everyone they need, any time they need it.
A 'greener' way to work
IBM Lotus Domino 8.5 has been designed to help reduce energy consumption and resource usage, optimising your available resources. Its powerful compression tools can save on disk space by up to 60%, which can help reduce energy consumption – not to mention save money on storage media costs.
Increased efficiency with the Domino Configuration Tuner
With IBM Lotus Domino 8.5, the in-built Domino Configuration Tuner will help your systems administrators detect server misconfigurations and performance and security issues, spotting potential problems before they have time to impact on your productivity – minimising any downtime.

What others say about us
“Having migrated from IBM Domino to Microsoft Office 360 (Business Cloud), we are delighted with the results – and have 1000 happy internal customers who much prefer Outlook to Domino. Life IT were flexible, fair and supportive when schedules had to change due to other Gurit projects. We had direct access to engineers and technical staff and a dedicated team who were easy to work with. The whole project was done in a very friendly environment and I would definitely recommend Life IT for these sorts of migration projects.”
Global IT Services Manager — Gurit Services AG
“Without the professional and expert support of Life IT, we wouldn’t have had the quality product we now have. They gently but insistently pushed the boundaries of our assumptions during the analysis phase, getting us to challenge our mind-sets and think outside the box. They then worked seamlessly as part of our team and delivered to time and to budget – no mean feat”.
Head of Technical Services—HCSS
“As we’d already invested significantly in Lotus Notes and Domino, a solution that built on our existing investment and skills was ideal. Life IT understood what was important to us and delivered a solution that met our needs. We’ve already seen the number of ‘distress calls’ to the sales office reduce as our sales managers can easily access customer data off line wherever they are and we’ve had positive feedback all round about the ability to update their call reports instantly on the road.”
Head of IT—Polyflor
“The Life IT solution has provided us with a significant reduction in support and maintenance costs and is an easy to use, more resilient and more easily maintainable system. As a business that handles thousands of transactions a day from 12 different own brand or white label websites it was vital that the whole process was seamless and, with the renewal of the support and maintenance contract from our existing supplier looming, it was also vital that the project came in on deadline. Life IT achieved this and more as they provided us with additional MI functionality and supported our staff whilst transferring their skills.’
Head of IT Development—DLR
“Life IT are doing a great job providing a very professional and efficient service. They are almost silently efficient and just get things done – only escalating issues when necessary. Their expertise in the AS400 is a key strength ensuring a real depth to their service and they keep us up to date with advances in technology too. So from an AS400 perspective I have very little to worry about.”
IT Service Delivery Manager
“After the restructure I was left with a critical resource gap which quickly needed filling, having worked with Life IT before I gave them a call. Their response was swift and efficient. They now work as a virtual Center Parcs help desk team providing a strength and depth of support. Their flexible working based on a time bank system is real value for money. So not only do I get an expert and efficient service, I have reduced my resource costs!”
Head of IT—Center Parcs
“We wanted flexible support to ensure 24/7 cover and Life IT worked with us to deliver this. Life IT has become integrated into the Bentley way of working and their role has expanded into looking at the technical side of the application as well as the support. “Our relationship has been built up over a significant period of time and both sides have worked hard to develop a supplier/customer relationship that can be used as a model throughout Bentley. We are now in the position where we have a pro-active partnership, Life IT are treated as part of Bentley, and that is a credit to them”.
