What our clients say about us

"We’re getting more than we ever did with IBM! They help us understand and transform our estate and saved us between 40% and 50% off our annual IBM software maintenance costs.."

Matt Turner, Channels & IT Transformation, BT

“We did indeed have a problem yesterday right in the middle of (and directly related to) the go-live of our new warehouse. We really appreciate Origina’s great response to the call and access to expertise which sorted the problem. Things calmed down massively after that."

Danny Hutchinson, Head of IT, Henderson Group

"The software vendors are very bullish. I find their [IBM's] arrogance direct line unacceptable; their pricing model is complex, and understanding their licensing model is complex too."
