Gannett Pilots Windows 7 Slates; Sees Potential Gains in Productivity, Sales, ROI
Gannett, one of the giants of digital media, constantly adopts the best of the latest technologies to help maintain its competitive advantage. Currently, Gannett is piloting the use of Windows 7 slates, which are Windows 7 PCs in the form of tablets. The slates give employees the ability to use their current business productivity and line-of-business applications in new settings and ways. And because the slates run the full Windows 7 operating system, IT can manage them with the same tools, systems, and expertise that it currently uses to manage other Windows-based computers. Gannett sees evidence of greater productivity, more effective sales meetings, and cost-effective IT management.
