Case Study Overview

Ageing IT infrastructure at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was having a detrimental effect on the day-to-day work of thousands of staff.

Being more than 10 years old, many of the desktop devices were slow and prone to regular problems, which impeded the productivity of staff, costing an estimated £942,000 annually in ‘lost time’ and placed pressure on the internal IT help desk.

CDW helped plan and implement a migration to Microsoft Office 365, the roll-out of new Lenovo devices, supported configuration and provided user adoption training.

Log-in times have been dramatically cut, staff are undertaking more appointments per day and there have been improvements in mobility, security, collaboration and workflow.

"One of the great strengths of CDW is that I can call my Account Director at any time and he will do his very best to resolve an issue. His flexibility and dedication is something I value very highly."

Associate Director of IT
