To optimize operational efficiency of its ERP systems across 600 users and 30 locations in the country, LG electronics has deployed Citrix access infrastructure solutions.

Arindam Bose, IT head, LG Electronics India, said, “LG operates out of 30 locations across the country, and the major challenges that we face are lowering our bandwidth costs, bringing down processing and transaction time, and extracting more value from our legacy systems.’

“To overcome these challenges, we have deployed the Citrix metaframe presentation server,” Bose added.

The server has resulted in significant cost savings for the company, and also added to the success of their ERP initiative in India, according to Bose.

Bose said, “For bandwidth alone, we have saved at least Rs 50 lakh per year. Also, we anticipate a saving of another Rs 40 lakh on user training over the next three years.”
