IGEL Success Story: Diversicare

  • Razor-thin margins drove the healthcare provider to get creative when shifting to virtualisation and consolidating its facilities onto one Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system, following an acquisition
  • The IGEL UD Pocket, combined with the Citrix virtualisation solution, reduced hardware and licensing costs for third-party software applications running on the endpoint, increased staff productivity and strengthened endpoint security for the growing network of skilled nursing facilities
  • With IGEL and Citrix, Diversicare is able to scale its end user computing infrastructure without adding resources

“Repurposing the old hardware gave us exactly what we needed at each centre, even with many devices to deploy we were in and out within 30 minutes. The shift was basically transparent to the end users; and for IT, created a single, homogeneous desktop landscape that is easy to manage with a simple drag and drop interface.”

Shanna Persful, Director of IT Operations, Diversicare

FAQ

  • Are you looking to radically reduce the overall cost of End User Compute requirement?

    IGEL Workspace Edition converts and standardises existing PCs so you can easily manage an otherwise mismatched fleet of devices and operating systems. Once installed IGEL UMS, included in Workspace Edition, deploys in minutes and automatically indexes each endpoint.

  • Will this work with VDI?

    VDI success ensured. This hardware-agnostic solution runs on compatible x86 devices, regardless of manufacturer, and instantly works in any EUC environment. Roaming software licenses allow movement of licenses between devices to quickly meet organisational dynamics and minimise endpoint hardware investments.

  • What about firmware and security updates?

    Consistently updated, constantly current, Firmware updates 4x a year with the latest versions of Citrix Reciever, VMware Horizon and Microsoft RDP client, plus software maintenance with 3 choices for support, 3 years after EOL. This level of support is unparalleled in the industry.

  • What about customisation?

    Easy customisation = no compromise. Set custom partitions, partial updates and extend scalability with the optional Enterprise Management Pack. You can even manage remote devices that are off network and have users effortlessly switch between fat clients and highly secure, thin endpoints with the UD Pocket.
