Fraser-based AIM Computer Solutions Inc. announced that for the 10th year in a row, software maintenance rates will not increase.
The company said the decision was made due to recent economic conditions and challenges in the automotive industry.
“Our ability to maintain our maintenance at a fixed rate is based on our automotive supplier specific customer base, which is both focused and growing,” said Jerry Czernel, AIM vice president of operations. “We are happy to be able to assist our base as the industry begins to show signs of prosperity again.”
The AIM customer base consists only of one customer type: the production part automotive supplier. In addition to holding maintenance rates level, several features have been added to the AIM Vision ERP solution for suppliers over the last few years.
“As the margins in our niche market get tighter, we have had to provide additional early warning features to insure timely shipments and supply chain communications,” Czernel said. “Our base of suppliers has responded well to our additions, which are based on ideas that have been generated in AIM user group meetings and customers’ requests. We are fortunate to have such an energetic and proactive group of customers.”
