Interflora inks ASP deal for hosted Notes

Purchase, N.Y.-based ASP Interliant Inc. has landed a 25-month contract with flower and gift delivery service Interflora (FTD) British Unit Ltd. to implement a managed Lotus Notes offering. The service will provide software access to more than 2,000 UK florist shops that will use the application to send and view orders to and from Interflora.

Interflora made the decision to upgrade to Lotus Notes R5 after availability and flexibility issues cropped up. Since Interflora's original service provider did not have plans to upgrade to R5 from 4.6, the company sought a new service provider and selected Interliant because of its European focus.
