Parker saves more than $2 million by building a more efficient IT infrastructure

Supporting an Increasing Global Footprint

To ensure its enterprise infrastructure could support its increasingly global footprint (currently 52,000+ employees in 48 countries), the Parker IT team needed to redefine its computing environment. “1E exponentially extends the functionality of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). In fact, our investment in Microsoft’s SCCM would have been a massive resource drain if we didn’t implement 1E’s solutions,” says Michael Powlison, IT Project Leader, Parker.

Increasing Productivity and Profitability

Tasked with eliminating unnecessary expenses across the organization, the IT team needed to address a range of issues – from unused software licenses to time-consuming software updates, patches and distributions.

“We significantly increase our customers’ productivity and profitability. No other enterprise software distribution solution in the market is as proven or robust as 1E’s. Their products work together seamlessly and are tightly integrated – providing the only comprehensive software distribution management that integrates with Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager platform,” says Michael Powlison, IT Project Leader.

The 1E Difference

Parker selected Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to manage, support and maintain its distributed network of computer resources. While SCCM provided enhanced insight into, and control over, Parker IT systems, it was insufficient as a single IT efficiency solution. Michael Powlinson comments: “In addition to its technical prowess and commitment to customer service, 1E’s close relationship with Microsoft made it an easy choice.”
