Client since


The brief

Upgrade software to Microsoft Windows 10 on 200 laptops before it becomes a security risk.

Key concerns

  • Fast approaching deadline for Microsoft not supporting Windows 7

Our IT Strategy

Supply the business with 20 new PCs and laptops to keep employees working normally while upgrades to Windows 10 were installed on their own machines.

Our solution

  • Member of Heron IT staff seconded on site for three months to update software as part of rolling process or cascade.
  • This ensured no staff time was lost and the service to Smartest Energy customers was unaffected.

Our current role

  • Sourcing and installing IT equipment.
