you havn't said what it isn't doing.
From the info you provide, @client should be taking on the value of
'IBM'. But you are doing nothing with that in the controller. If
your view is displaying the client then you will need to look up the
client IBM from your database using a suitable find operation. Now
you may be doing this in the view template. If you are unsure what is
in @client, then try putting
<%= debug @client %> into your template.
