GRSolutions and Fresche

Digital requirements are driving the need for transformation enablement capabilities and demand for automated solutions.

Montreal, Canada, November 5, 2018 – Fresche Solutions, the world’s leading provider of IBM i digital transformation enablement, application modernization and optimization solutions, today announced GRSolutions (GRS) as the exclusive distributor of X‑Analysis products in Japan. This includes the highly sought-after X-Analysis View, X-Analysis Advisor and X-2E Analysis for CA 2E Synon applications, in addition to an entire suite of automated tooling for IBM i application documentation, analysis and modernization.

Fresche has seen tremendous success in North America and Europe offering solutions through its Power Partner program and extensive partner network, enabling VARs, ISVs, integrators and other partners to address their clients’ needs for IBM i application modernization. The program extends our partners’ offerings and lets their end clients work directly with their trusted advisor who is now capable of delivering a much broader and complete modernization solution.

As a partner, GRS has shown strength by successfully growing their customer base and developing key partners in the region, such as BELL DATA, Inc. and DAIICHI COMPUTER RESOURCE Co., Ltd. Their continued growth in the Japanese market coupled with the following attributes made GRS the obvious choice for Fresche’s master distributor in Japan:

  • Commitment to client success: GRS has demonstrated that their primary goal is to address the needs of the IBM i community in Japan. Their continued commitment to this goal has resulted in GRS’s success and ensured a superior level of service and support for the Japanese market.
  • Product knowledge: The depth of X-Analysis solution and technical knowledge that GRS can offer ensures that their clients derive maximum advantage from Fresche’s tools.
  • Partnership success: GRS is a perfect cultural fit with Fresche through their unparalleled devotion to supporting and nurturing clients and the partner community in their region. Through our combined partnership, GRS has the capacity and tools to help clients leverage and modernize existing IBM i assets to meet the future needs of the IBM i community in Japan.

Jennifer Fisher, Fresche’s Vice President of Business Engineering, commented that Fresche is investing significantly in the Japanese market to support the needs of the IBM i community: “The Japanese IBM i market is the second largest in the world, so we needed a partner with a strong and proven track record. GRS is very successful in building trusted partnerships and delivering value through the X-Analysis suite of tools. They are committed to the IBM i community and dedicated to building the IBM/Fresche ecosystem to serve their market. IBM Business Partners and clients can now look to GRS for an ever-growing range of solutions, many of which are powered by tools in the X-Analysis suite.”
