“ It was so easy to integrate the solution with the environment that we have working in the data center. Maybe the reason for the PureFlex name is because it is so flexible. ”
Carlos Guerrero, IT infrastructure manager, Círculo K México
Círculo K México
ACCECO S.A. de C.V.
A convenience store chain based in Mexico City, Círculo K México has approximately 220 locations that are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The retailer sells various items, including drinks, snacks and cigarettes.
Círculo K México needed to consolidate and upgrade its infrastructure with a more scalable and available solution that could help reduce lost revenues and provide better customer service.
Working with IBM and IBM Business Partner ACCECO S.A. de C.V., the retailer implemented an IBM® PureFlex™ System solution.
Because it no longer experiences significant downtime, losing revenues of USD10,000 per hour per store, Círculo K México increases revenue by millions of dollars each year.
