Staffing & Application Services

Many companies have a shortage of IBM i staff to maintain and enhance their systems. In some cases, retiring resources may take with them all the knowledge of business-critical applications and leave the company with no one trained to take care of the system. In other instances, small teams with large workloads mean that IT projects are often postponed or take too long to complete. Our Application Services team is available with all the experience and skills you might need.

We have a flexible portfolio of services that allow you to hire our IBM i experts to help with anything you need:

  • Application maintenance and backlog
  • Development in RPG, COBOL, CA 2E (Synon), Java and PHP
  • Code modernization, refactoring and modularization
  • System administration
  • Database maintenance
  • Application documentation

You can choose to bring our experts to work as part of your team, or to let us manage the whole project; you may need extra help for three months, for a year, or for undetermined time; we have your back in every situation.


Finding skilled, knowledgeable IBM i resources can be tough. Instead of recruiting and training new employees each time you need extra help, you can hire professionals from Fresche to work as part of your team. We have a pool of experienced IBM i professionals proficient in all technologies surrounding the IBM i, with best IT practices.
