MERCIAN LABELS LAUNCHES CORPORATE WEBSITE SUPPORTING ITS MIGRATION TO OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE

Mercian Labels Ltd has launched a new corporate website in support its migration to open source software. The leading UK security label specialist has been blogging about its migration to open source software at jack.dev.mercianlabels.com/blog since early 2007, and has chosen to unify its brands in short run labelling and innovative tamper evident security labels under its new corporate banner at www.mercianlabels.com .

Dr Adrian Steele, Managing Director of Mercian Labels commented. “Mercian Labels is firmly committed to its migration to open source software on the linux platform, and our new website written in open source PHP is yet another step demonstrating our investment in a more reliable software infrastructure for ourselves and ultimately our customers. We have experienced fantastically better website uptime since we moved to linux which has helped our online marketing strategy. Together with Senokian Solutions, our IT consultants, we hope to complete the migration later in 2007.”
