Computacenter's installation of multimedia capable thin clients helps to improve productivity and lower costs at gkv informatik.
Updating their thin clients should allow staff at the insurance companies supported by gkv informatik to participate in multimedia training courses and video conferences in the future.
Computacenter undertook this task for gkv informatik and, as planned, managed to install around 12,000 multimedia-capable thin clients across Germany within three months.The new thin clients were preconfigured in the Computacenter Integration Center in Kerpen before being delivered to the staff at the health insurance companies. On the day of the exchange, the old devices were collected from the various offices and sent for recycling.
With this new equipment, gkv informatik has modernised and updated its network of offices. The multimedia capability of the new clients makes training easier and, thanks to the modern video conferencing facilities, saves time and travel expenditure. The existing framework agreement with Computacenter meant the entire project could be implemented quickly and transparently.
