Desktop Solution Accelerator
Trustmarque’s Desktop Solution Accelerator programme helps customers define their desktop strategies, simplify desktop planning and application management as well as enabling flexible working and bring-your-own-device behaviour. The methodology adopted is business user centric with the technological architecture focused on end user application requirements in a mobile environment.

“We have had really positive feedback from our users. Windows 7 allows them to work faster and more efficiently, and we are getting less support requests which is great. Also employees can now work from any location and their applications and configuration follows them around, which really improves the user experience. And, the fact that Trustmarque could configure the system for us as a service and through negotiated concessions with Microsoft has meant that we have not had to spend money on deploying an additional application management tool.”
