The Stone Group has announced that it has won a bid to supply Public Health England with Windows 10 PCs as it upgrades from Windows 7 to Windows 10. The deal will have over 5, 500 staff migrate to Windows ahead of the end of support timeline for Windows 7 in 2020.
They will use Microsoft’s System Centre Configuration Manager and pre-configure every device with the apps and drivers required from PHE staff.
Simon Pettit, Corporate Director at Stone Group comments: “We are thrilled to have been selected to support PHE with its technology refresh. This tender represents a significant device roll out for PHE, as a result, it was clear from the start that they required a seamless deployment to ensure that there was little disruption to the important work of PHE’s staff. As one of the only UK-based IT solutions providers for the public sector with its own manufacturing facility on site, Stone has proven experience in delivering large-scale device roll outs that are ready to go straight out of the box on delivery. This means we are very well placed to help PHE transition to the new Windows 10 devices seamlessly. For PHE, this was a real game changer, and eased their decision to choose Stone as their preferred supplier.”
