The joint Microsoft – Provance solution provided the combined IT Service Management and IT Asset Management capabilities necessary for Grant Thornton France to effectively manage the firm’s 1,500 end user computers, 180 servers, 242 printers and 500 software titles across the entire asset life cycle. Furthermore, the ability to use the existing deployments of Active Directory and Configuration Manager reduced implementation time and minimized training. Software costs were minimized and greater value was realized from the Microsoft volume license agreement by using Service Manager licensing already in place.
“System Center is incomplete without Provance IT Asset Management,” said Bruno De Lattre, CIO. “It complements and completes System Center, giving us a single platform to manage our entire Grant Thornton France infrastructure”.
The Provance IT Asset Management Pack allowed Grant Thornton to extend the value of the IT department’s System Center solution to significantly enhance IT service management efficiencies and significantly improve the end-user experience. According to CIO Bruno De Lattre, “Fiscal year 2013 will be the first time we will be equipped with a platform and products that will allow us to deliver efficient IT services to the business.”
