Desktop Upgrade Boosts Productivity, Reduces IT Effort for Global Advertising Company
Wunderman, a global network of advertising and marketing companies, wanted to boost user productivity and reduce the time spent maintaining operating system images. The company decided to standardize on Windows 7 Professional and began by using the Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit to assess its PC infrastructure. Wunderman also participated in an Application Compatibility Factory engagement to test and remediate application compatibility, and is using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit to optimize image management and deployment. Improvements in navigation, PC performance, desktop search, battery life, and connectivity are making users more productive, and the company is seeing significant reductions in IT effort and the number of help-desk calls.
