With the signing of this alliance, InterSystems continues with its policy of expansion through partners, thus reinforcing its commitment to the distribution channel

Madrid, Spain – January 9, 2002 – After a year of close collaboration, InterSystems, an American database systems supplier, and Investigación y Programas, S.A. IPSA®—have signed a technological collaboration agreement through which IPSA will become a new applications partner of InterSystems. According to the terms of this agreement, IPSA will integrate Caché, the database management system developed by InterSystems, into its document query and storage solution, ATRIL® Explotación. The agreement also establishes cooperation between InterSystems and IPSA for joint development of the integration of Caché with the ATRIL solution for document capturing

The agreement likewise includes a training program for the IPSA development department and maintenance of the Caché platform.

On a daily basis, users of IPSA solutions face the most demanding operating conditions, sometimes processing more than 500,000 documents per day. For situations like this, it is essential to have a solution that provides optimum performance.

InterSystems will benefit from IPSA’s international expansion, especially in Latin America, and from IPSA’s share in its markets that include banking, services, insurance, transportation, public administration, etc.

According to Carlos López, country manager for InterSystems España, “This new alliance is in line with our sales strategy of building our channel with new application partners like IPSA.”

Alejandro Gañán, IPSA’sdirector for development and technology in Spain and Latin America, said, “We have chosen Caché for our systems because of its high performance and optimum response times, two characteristics that are fundamental for our clients and ourselves. Also, the evolution of the product, with which each new version incorporates solutions to problems reported by the users, and InterSystems’ technical assistance, have been key factors in our selection.”
