Battle on for QSP customers

Following the collapse of UK financial software vendor QSP, Walker Interactive and SunSystems have wasted no time in locking horns to win over its customer base.

SunSystems has launching a rescue package called QSP Assist, designed to offer UK customers an easy means of migrating their software. The company said it would offer good value deals to QSP users, but would not reveal the typical costs involved.

Meanwhile, Walker which acquired QSP’s intellectual property and certain consulting services contracts for an undisclosed amount of cash said it intended to provide customer support and consulting services to QSP’s UK customers and is in the process of drawing up a development roadmap, which should be ready in 90 days.

SunSytems’ managing director, John Gordon, said: ‘We think there is a real danger that customers of QSP will think the only place to turn is to the company who has bought the intellectual property rights of the QSP software.’

However, Walker managing director Roger Llewellyn, said the company had reopened the QSP support desk this week and had retained all but two of the former QSP support staff.

He added: ‘We intend to make this a business and are not simply here to make money out of the QSP demise.’
