Operating a multistate textile rental and cleaning service with a hosted SAP R/3 system was proving an expensive proposition for Mission Linen Supply. Paying for hosting as well as software maintenance and support put significant stress on the IT budget. In addition, the never-ending cycle of hardware and software updates in the hosting data center was consuming more IT dollars.

With Rimini Street independent support, it can keep a stable and effective SAP R/3 system that the vendor considered end of life running for other decade, while also saving 50 percent on maintenance and support.

- Stayed current with tax, legal and regulatory updates tailored to its specific needs by Rimini Street.
- Eliminated the need to constantly monitor and modify software stack configurations to keep pace with hardware changes in the hosted data center.
