GE-DRIVE INFRASTRUCTURE RELOCATION FOR GE CAPITAL
GE-Drive, GE Capital’s primary proposal capture system for the auto finance sector was previously hosted and managed in Paris, France. CHC designed a completely new server and network architecture for GE-Drive, ordered servers and associated equipment, and installed equipment in GE Capital’s new data center in Watford, England. All data was transferred from the existing system to the new system with all users transferred without incident or business interruption.

CHC’s experience with time critical implementations such as the GE Drive relocation project demonstrates their ability to perform up to standard and under pressure. The GE Drive relocation project validates CHC’s ability to minimize the risk of switching providers, enabling continuity of service and reducing disengagement issues.
