Liquit Helps Municipality of Eindhoven Prepare for the Future of Work

|Gemeente Eindhoven

Eindhoven is one of the five biggest municipalities in the Netherlands, with approximately 231,000 inhabitants living on 89km2. The municipality is the ‘brainport’ of the Netherlands, hosting many leading technology companies, with approximately one third of all Dutch R&D-financing going to Eindhoven. A municipality with such great focus on the technology of the future should clearly have a plan in place for the future of work.

The municipality had already invested in hardware to support the transition, but what they really needed was a hybrid IT set-up with Microsoft 365 to maximize the use of this hardware while limiting the licensing costs for their users. In cooperation with integration partners IT Value and UBM Global, Liquit met these demands with a combination of Liquit Workspace and Liquit Release & Patch Management.

The Challenge

Municipality of Eindhoven needed to integrate their existing workspace portal for a distributed municipal workforce of 2,500 into a hybrid IT setup with Microsoft 365 while limiting licensing costs. The goal was to enable all users to have a unified user experience with single click access to all updated applications via a single portal using any device from any location.

The Solution

The new solution comprises a combination of Windows 10 and Office 365 that integrates the existing IT infrastructure and portal with Liquit Workspace and Liquit Release & Patch Management. Users get the ultimate user experience without having to get used to a new portal. This is because of the Liquit Smart Icons that provide a familiar one-click application and service access experience that is indistinguishable from their existing portal. The municipality will also equip all users with a new laptop set up with Microsoft Autopilot and Intune that is configured with a customized Liquit Workspace user interface.
