Brentwood Borough Council Stays Ahead of the Game with UniPrint/Azure Cloud Print Solution

Del

UniPrint.net announced today their successful secure cloud print deployment with Brentwood Borough Council in Essex, UK.

In 2016, the Council released a report entitled “Vision for Brentwood, 2016-2019”. In it, they outlined their goals to better the lives of their constituents, and those goals included reducing costs and streamlining services. After examining their existing infrastructure, they made the decision to become the 1st UK council to move 100% of its systems and infrastructure to the cloud.

“We wanted to create a very easy delivery of people’s desktops no matter where they were, whether it was a coffee shop, their home, or one of our sites,” said Tim Huggins, ICT Manager at Brentwood Borough Council.

This presented a multitude of challenges, but one of the biggest was printing.

“We approached our common provider,” said Huggins. “But it became quite evident very quickly that they had no solution, and we were way ahead of the game with our concepts and what we were trying to do.”

With a forward-thinking strategy, the Council only needed a solutions provider to deliver on what they needed. Once they found UniPrint, it became clear it was the right solution for them.

The UniPrint Infinity solution places all printers, drivers, devices, and users into one centralized management console and gives administrators powerful tools to manage their printing infrastructure quickly and easily. What’s more, in the age of frequent data breaches and ransomware attacks, UniPrint provides added document security and encryption to protect print data from getting into the wrong hands. Council Business Application Analyst Cole Brace summarized simply how UniPrint Infinity has changed how they work:

“Working with UniPrint means we can have more people go out on site, or they can work from home. We needed something compatible with our new way of working, which was to be agile and flexible. UniPrint was the only provider we found that had a real solution and people who understood what we were about.”

Steven Jones, Regional Director for UniPrint.net EMEA/APJ, summarized how the Council’s use-case represents the exact workflow challenges UniPrint aims to help customers overcome with its solution:

“The Brentwood vision exemplifies the challenge of implementing printing in the Cloud. At UniPrint we pride ourselves as being a true pioneer and leader in achieving Cloud strategies for our customers.”

Novostia Technology for Heart Valve Prosthesis Raises CHF 6.5 Million to Start First Clinical Trials22.2.2019 07:30:00Pressemelding

Novostia announces that it raised CHF 6.5 million from private investors to advance its disruptive aortic and mitral heart valve to clinical trials. Heart valve diseases affect more than 100 million people worldwide. Every year hundreds of thousands of patients undergo a heart valve replacement.
