CLEAR ready for Y2K

With one hundred days to go, CLEAR Communications today announced that it is ready for the Year 2000.

All the critical systems supporting CLEAR's business processes are now either Y2K ready or compliant.

"This means that we have met our key objective of having no non-compliant high level business processes, well before the end of the year," said CLEAR's Networks Director, Ken Benson.

CLEAR's high level of confidence that its customers will not be affected by Y2K related problems in CLEAR's network had been reinforced, said Benson.

This is the last significant milestone for CLEAR's Year 2000 Project, which will be formally handed back to the business on September 30.

"The majority of preparation for Y2K has already been completed, including testing, remediation, supplier assessment, contingency and transition planning," said Benson.

The remaining Y2K-related tasks will be distributed to various business units to be managed as part of CLEAR's normal business operation. These include a three-month production freeze and a full-scale Y2K simulation in November to fine tune the company's contingency plans.

CLEAR's year 2000 project team was established in January 1997 with the objective of making CLEAR's critical systems Y2K compliant, well before the end of 1999. Twenty million dollars were allocated to the project, which employed up to 190 people at its peak.
