The challenge

To update and standardize the workstation and server infrastructure at more than 2,000 branches of the Raiffeisen bank in Austria as part of the migration from Microsoft Windows XP to Microsoft Windows 7.

The solution

The implementation of high-performance, space-saving and energy-efficient Fujitsu ESPRIMO PCs, together with scalable, energy-efficient Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers with a customer-specific setup. The proximity of the Fujitsu development and production site in Augsburg meant that it was possible to guarantee a maximum delivery time of 10 working days from order receipt. In most cases, the systems were delivered direct to the Raiffeisen branches.

  • High employee satisfaction thanks to the improved performance of the workstation PCs.
  • Reduction in data backup times and increased data security at the branches.
  • Lower energy costs due to more economical systems.
