Turn green screens into automation is a video from a recent Utilities 400 webinar. During the webinar we explained how you could remove manual, error prone data entry through the use of iKeyer, our automated virtual terminal.
During the session we were joined by Jacqueline Jeffrey, IT Manager of Eclipse Blinds. On 13:00, she explains how iKeyer helped her business save many thousands of pounds per year. Later, on 20:00, Steve Close, our IT Director provides a demonstration using example data from our real-life business experiences.

Utilities 400, one of the world’s leading independent software houses on developing enterprise solutions for the IBM i enterprise, has welcomed two new specialists to its development and support team.
Utilities 400 R&D and support team are excited to welcome Diarmuid Drew and Des Hyde as senior development and product consultants.
Diarmuid enjoys 30 years of IT experience working predominantly as a senior analyst programmer. In addition to being well versed in all phases of the software development lifecycle, he’s also a keen fisher and in his spare time, can be found wallowing in the banks of rivers searching for bass.
Des too has a 30 year history in IT as a programmer and support lead on IBM i. She specialises in warehousing and interfaces but also has broad career in helping businesses improve processes and functionality. Des also enjoys Campanology, a study of the craft and play of bell ringing.
Please join us in welcoming Des and Diarmuid to the Utilities 400 family!
ShowMe Barcode Battle
For International iPower, we built a quick, fun application in ShowMe+ to showcase the solutions speed and real-time prowess. The application was based upon barcode scanning and designed as a fun game in which delegates could compete.
The rules are simple, scan 20 unique barcodes in as quick a time as possible. Whomever scans all 20 in the quickest time, wins!
Following the iPower event, we decided to give it a go ourselves... but who won within the Utilities 400 team?
Barcode Battle - Part 1
First we have Filippo. Filippo is a developer and is of Italian descent. As such, he's basing his quick firing tactics on the work of legendary Spaghetti Western director, Sergio Leone. Good, Bad or Ugly, Filippo is determined to win either way.
Next up is Jon. Jon is our principle engineer for ShowMe technologies and Clint Eastwood fan. With this inspiration, he feels lucky. Go ahead, make his day.
Finally we have Janet. Don't let her day-to-day responsibilities as a consultant fool you. Inspired by Pricess Leia, she's out to prove that the force is strong with this one.
Barcode Battle - Part 2
The battle was a close run race but there was only one winner. Can you guess who it was?
