INDEPENDENCE, OH – June 25, 2014 — / — United Computer Group, Inc. (UCG), an information technology services firm, is pleased to have been chosen to deliver the mission-critical IBM System i BaaS for EMI Corp. located in Jackson Center, OH with a second location in Wickliffe, OH.

EMI recently subscribed to UCG’s VAULT400 BaaS to protect business-critical data on their IBM Midrange system.

Prior to VAULT400, EMI backed up their system with multiple, expensive tapes. This meant EMI’s IT team had to perform manual backups every night. With VAULT400, they now set and forget their backups. Their data is compressed, encrypted and sent to UCG’s secure, off-site, HIPAA compliant data center in Cleveland, Ohio as well as their data center in Atlanta, Georgia for a second replication.

With VAULT400, data is available for immediate, user-initiated restore 365x24x7. In the event of disaster, EMI will receive Hardware Disaster Recovery Quick Ship free of charge from United Computer Group, Inc. EMI uses IBM-powered S2K Enterprise Management Software as their ERP solution. United Computer Group is an authorized distributor for this award-winning Manufacturing and Distribution software.

Kay Frieders of EMI Corp. wears many hats including Controller, IT Manager, and General Manager. Kay was extremely pleased with the outstanding customer service received from UCG, underscoring their dedication to an excellent client experience each and every time.

“The VAULT400 installation on our iSeries was flawless and could not have been better. In addition to the smooth installation, UCG promptly followed up with me on the seeding completion of all the backup jobs that were scheduled to make sure that everything is perfect for EMI Corp. I’ve been working for 30 years with IT people all over and it is refreshing to work with UCG; they care and it shows. It’s that kind of detail to attention that keeps customers coming back.” – Kay Frieders, Controller / IT Manager, EMI Corp., Jackson Center, OH

About EMI Corp.
For more than 40 years, EMI has been one of the most experienced and reliable manufacturers and suppliers of automation equipment and maintenance products for the plastics industry. They have thousands of products and their automation systems are found in many of the largest—and smallest—plastic processing facilities.

EMI was established in 1968 to provide innovative, high-quality, end-of-barrel products for injection molding machines. As the injection molding industry grew, a need began to emerge for technology to automate the handling of plastic molded parts. To meet this need, EMI began developing conveyors and engineered automation systems including central conveying, box filling, parts diverting, cooling, and many other custom engineered systems.
