Upgrade to Latest Operating System Yields Multiple Benefits for Small College
Thomas College, which bills itself as the only college in the United States to offer guaranteed job placement upon graduation, prides itself on providing students with access to the most current computer software. As such, the college was one of the first to upgrade all of its PCs to the Windows 7 operating system. Coupled with independent adoption of Windows 7 by students on their own systems, the college's rapid rollout of Windows 7 has delivered improvements in usability, PC startup and shutdown speeds, system responsiveness, battery life, reliability, and security. Meanwhile, the college's small IT team is benefiting from increased troubleshooting capabilities and 10 percent fewer support incidents, leaving more time to focus on new projects.
