City of Fremantle upgrades to mobile workforce

The City of Fremantle has contracted Data#3 to implement a mobility solution for the benefit of staff and residents.

The council selected Data#3 through a tender process to provide the full design, planning and deployment services for a project to replace its ageing suite of desktop devices, upgrade its operating system and support an office relocation.

The City opted for a combination of Microsoft Surface and HP desktop services, with Data#3 providing centralised procurement, management and implementation for the new devices.

Data#3 provided asset tagging, electronic tagging and testing, and imaging, as well as logistics services for a staged rollout of the new solution. The project also involved deploying Windows 10 on every device.

“Key to the transition was the need to align with our Information Technology Mobility Strategy. Thanks to our new hardware and the deployment of Windows 10, we have a truly mobile workforce that can now connect, share and collaborate with ease,” City of Fremantle IT Manager Joel Hurst said.

“Data#3 provided the crucial support we needed to get these projects over the line. They delivered what they said they would deliver, on time and on budget, and their professionalism shone through every step of the way.”
