a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure
enterprise, today announced that Utah
Community Credit Union (UCCU) recently selected the IGEL Universal
Management Suite (UMS) and Universal Desktop UD2, UD3 and UD5 thin
clients to replace an existing network of thin client devices at its
headquarters in Provo, Utah and branch offices located throughout the
state. The recommendation to adopt IGEL's endpoint management solutions
was made by IGEL partner, 1
on 1 Technologies, a technology solutions provider based in
Ryan Frost, Solutions Mastermind, 1 on 1 Technologies, has been working
with UCCU for nearly a decade. In 2014, the credit union approached him
looking for a better way to manage its growing footprint of end-user
devices, which was comprised of more than 40 zero clients located across
more than a dozen locations, including its headquarters and branch
offices. "At the time, we were still in the middle of an economic
recession and UCCU was finding that it was becoming more difficult for
its small IT staff to manage the credit union's growing network of zero
clients," said Frost.
"They were spending too much of their time on repair and imaging of the
1 on 1 Technologies chose to partner with IGEL largely due to the
management capabilities available through the IGEL Universal Management
Suite. Frost added, "We needed to help Utah Community Credit Union do
more with less, while at the same time prepare for growth as the economy
improved. IGEL offered the best thin client solutions for helping us to
achieve those objectives."
1 on 1 Technologies recommended that UCCU evaluate IGEL's thin clients,
and after spending a month testing the demo units, the credit union
found that IGEL offered everything it wanted in a thin client solution,
and more. "What really sold us on IGEL was the fact that both the
hardware and software worked as prescribed, with very few issues or
challenges during the testing phase," said Ken Gibby, CIO, UCCU. "The
solution was reliable and easy to implement, and we could tell from the
start that IGEL had made some significant investments in developing the
UMS, which provided our team with the ability to easily manage and
control our end-user devices and workspaces."
UCCU is currently leveraging the IGEL thin clients as part of its Citrix
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Citrix XenApp deployments. The
credit union also has plans to expand its IGEL thin client
infrastructure as new branch offices are opened across Utah.
"With IGEL, organizations like Utah Community Credit Union are able to
radically reduce the overall cost, infrastructure complexity and
resources associated with onsite management of their endpoint devices,"
Clephan, Vice President of Business Development and Strategic
Alliances, IGEL. "We are proud to be teaming with 1 on 1
Technologies to help simplify endpoint management for the credit union,
while providing them with the flexibility they need to easily scale
their desktop infrastructure as their business grows."
