“Key to the success of the project was the professional management as well as the team's dedication – ensuring teamwork in partnership.”

Jan Borowik – Project Manager n@t, BARMER

Barmer is Germany's biggest health insurance company with 7.1 million policyholders. Their head office is in Wuppertal-Barmen, Germany. For over 120 years BARMER has capitalised on customer satisfaction. In the event of illness, customers are well provided for and enjoy many extras.

Considering the size and importance of the project, the first step was to define the IT objectives, closely analyse existing weak points in the IT infrastructure and elicit the causes. It was important for BARMER that after a short start phase for testing and integration, the consolidation and optimisation of client infrastructure was advanced.

The individual components (Igel Thin Client, Mouse, Keyboard, Mousepad, TFT Display, Screen) were integrated as one solution. The central administration of all Thin Clients was realised using powerful Remote Management software.
