Quad Nova Group brings extensive experience with IBM Power i (AS400). Our specialists, the Power i Innovators team, is devoted exclusively to assisting businesses on IBM Power i (AS400) servers, whether the client wants to seamlessly merge platforms with newer external systems—maintaining the stability of the old system while facilitating integrations and migrations with new applications, or transition to new platforms entirely. Our Power i Innovators is the “go-to” team.
We have several office locations: Jacksonville and West Palm Beach, Florida and Baltimore, Maryland. We serve clients located throughout the United States. When necessary, a Quad Nova team member works at the client’s location on assignment.
The team at QuadNova continues to amaze me at their flexibility. Whether creating a custom program for lead management, creating an enterprise wide imaging solution, helping my internal IT department to migrate off of an AS400 based insurance processing platform to a package system running on a Sybase platform or building an intuitive frontend to a package system, they not only come through for us but they exceed my expectations by continually thinking through the project and making many value added suggestions and enhancements to help our users.
They are a true partner.
