Page 1 of 1
Borders Group (BGP) said its primary objectives were to improve its systems' capabilities in the critical areas of scalability, failover, fault tolerance and overall infrastructure.
In beating out a group of over 25 candidates, Bluestone's Sapphire tool (BLSW) will replace an aging legacy system that currently links Borders' primary e-commerce Web site, Borders.com, and the company's in-store "special order" systems -- Borders Express and NetSPO.
The Bluestone system will tie together Borders' ordering systems and is designed to provide the company with the expansion headroom needed to meet its future growth targets.
