"Fujitsu won the tender for the new PCs because it offered us the best price for the performance we wanted. Thanks to our previous experiences, we were already convinced of the quality of the systems, and the test phase only confirmed this."
Gordian Gossen BW-PC Project Coordinator University of Freiburg
The “Green City” of Freiburg in south west Germany is known for both its high environmental standards and the Albert Ludwigs University. Founded in 1457, the university is right in the heart of the city. As one of the top institutions in the country, it covers the entire spectrum of subjects across its eleven faculties and has won multiple national awards for its excellent research and teaching quality.
The universities of Baden-Württemberg coordinate their purchases of standard workplace PCs, with the University of Freiburg issuing Europe-wide tenders for the devices. The individual institutions can then order them via the “BW-PC” online platform.
Orders made through the shared platform can total up to one million Euros. The company that offers the best price for the specifications required wins the bid. Alongside the price, Fujitsu was also able to impress the group with both the energy efficiency of its FUJITSU ESPRIMO Q956 mini PC and fast service provision from inside Germany.
