Prime and Office Automation
Prime 550 used for Office Automation Pilot, 1982
In 1982, RAL decided to evaluate Prime's Office Automation System (OAS) and purchased a P550 for this. In the event RAL decided to implement IBM PROFS for its Office Automation. The P550 was transferred to the Library as a service machine running INFO and STATUS. This proved to be a successful service and an upgrade to a P750 was effected in 1985.
