UK MANPOWER SERVICES COMMISSION PICKS OLIVETTI FOR 10,000 TERMINAL PROJECT

By CBR Staff Writer

The UK government’s Manpower Services Commission has picked British Olivetti for a pilot project that could lead to an agency-wide office automation system supporting up to 10,000 terminals. Olivetti, bidding AT&T 3B2 Unix machines and its own MS-DOS micros running Quadatron’s Q-Office software, won the contract for the pilot over NCR with the Tower, and ICL, which bid Clan Unix and MS-DOS machines with Officepower. The two initial installations, in Sheffield and London, will handle up to 128 and eight users respectively; depending on the success of the pilot phase, the employment commission plans to expand the system to serve thousands of users over several years.
