Dear Friends,

A new financial year has begun for most Indian companies, and we at Swan are also looking forward to another trend-setting year. We ended the last year on quite an optimistic note in terms of sales thanks to the support we received from all our customers.

With the current cautious approach in the market, and with projects getting delayed due to lack of conviction on ROI, we have responded by offering an Operating and Finance lease through our tie-up with HP Finance and IBM Global. We hope that this will ease the financial challenges and keep IT projects on track for our customers.

We have big plans for the year which include more services in the area of systems management, asset optimization, and information security. We will also provide more skilled resources at all our locations and hope to penetrate a little deeper into the market.

We also designed and circulated to our customers a very innovative wall calendar for home to help keep schedules and expenses in order. With the positive feedback we have received, we hope to make this an annual feature.

I congratulate the winner of our last CommuniQA Quiz and request more participation from others as well.

Once again, I thank all of you for your support and wish your organisation a great FY 2012-2013.

Title Tech-a-laff
A confused caller to helpdesk was having troubles printing documents. He told the technician that the computer had said it "couldn't find printer". The user had also tried turning the computer screen to face the printer - but that his computer still couldn't "see" the printer.

If Apple made toasters... It would do everything the Microsoft toaster does, but five years earlier.

How is a computer like an air conditioner? When you open Windows it won't work!
