Fujitsu sets eyes on HCI prize

Opens the portal with Computacenter

Website security in corporate America

Fujitsu-Seimens computers and Computacenter are launching a new portal for small and medium sized businesses to enable them to implement the government's Home Computing Initiative (HCI). The service will reduce costs by helping managers run HCI schemes online, apparently.

HCI allows employees to apply for a tax-exempt loan of a desktop PC or laptop. Employers will now be able to manage HCI finances online and arrange employees’ payments against the loan through a tax-free contribution from their salary, if they want a Fujitsu.

Computacenter's HCI Sales Director Roger Smith waxed lyrical: "We are confident that it will be a great success and, by providing Fujitsu Siemens Computers equipment, employees applying via the portal will be able to get some of the best technology equipment available."

For his part, Fujitsu HCI Business Manager Jeff Kirkham uttered: "The SMB market is very important to us and we believe it is vital that they too have the necessary tools to offer the scheme to their employees. By offering HCI as a benefit it can help SMBs to improve staff retention, whilst improving their ICT skills and creating more flexible working methods."
