"Standardization is one of the reasons why we choose Fujitsu. We can cover all of our office PC requirements with just two different models. The quality of the devices has also always impressed us."
Manuel Urch IT Team Leader Stadtwerke Konstanz GmbH
Stadtwerke Konstanz is a traditional medium-sized public utility company based in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. Alongside more traditional services such as supplying the city with electricity and heat, it also operates its swimming pools and local public transport system. On the shores of Lake Constance, this includes ferries. The company became responsible for shipping traffic on Lake Constance following its acquisition of Bodensee-Schiffsbetriebe GmbH (BSB) in 2003, and it now operates the ferry link between Friedrichshafen and Romanshorn in conjunction with the Swiss shipping company, SBS.
Stadtwerke Konstanz, a medium-sized energy provider, has a streamlined IT team of just five employees to provide its 817 staff with IT services. A high degree of standardization, reliable and fast on-site support and stable PCs keep maintenance expenditure low.
With just two FUJITSU device models – the ESPRIMO Q520 mini PC and LIFEBOOK E554 laptop – the company can cover all of its office computing needs. The mini PCs provide additional desk space and can be collected more easily than larger computers when they require maintenance.
