Forestry Commission chops costs

James Rogers
The Forestry Commission aims to cut the cost of setting up all of its 2,500 new and upgraded PCs by £165,000 over the next two years, by using automation software to configure new systems.

The software, from systems management specialist Altiris, automates the roll-out of operating systems and applications, removing the need for an on-site IT support engineer and expensive third-party rebuilds. This has slashed the price of setting up each PC from about £100 to £34, the commission claims.

It has so far installed the software on 250 PCs and laptops, saving more than £12,000.
