Feeding America has jumped on the increasingly crowded Windows 7 bandwagon. The workers at Feeding America will be more productive and be able to feed America’s hungry more efficiently now that it has transitioned the entire desktop infrastructure to Windows 7.
A Windows For Your Business blog post explains, “everyone at the national office and 100 percent of supported food banks are enjoying Windows 7. Feeding America couldn’t be happier with the results – from IT’s ease of adding peripheral devices, to 85 percent reduction in service calls reporting errors, to employees’ overwhelmingly positive responses to Windows 7 features like Snap, Search and the Snipping Tool.”
Last year I got to follow two other organizations as they went through the process of switching to Windows 7. Cupcake Royale and Balin Accountancy were the subject of a pilot experiment conducted by Microsoft and Dell to demonstrate the value of migrating to Windows 7.
If you haven’t yet switched to Windows 7, take a look at these success stories and explore whether your organization should take the plunge. If your organization has migrated to Windows 7, comment here or email me and let me know what prompted the switch, how smoothly the transition went, and your thoughts on how things are now compared with the platform you were using previously.
