To provide modern technology to 3,500 local council employees, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham searched for new, cost-effective solutions to replace their outdated legacy systems. Chromebooks and Chromeboxes were affordable options that didn't need to be constantly upgraded and managed by their IT staff.

Upgraded systems, reliable devices

  • Empowering users to work on the go with mobile devices increased productivity
  • Web-based applications helped ensure that all council information is handled in compliance with UK government security regulations
  • £400K saved compared to the cost of deploying new Windows desktops

1,000 fewer devices for IT to manage

"We knew we had to either upgrade our 3,500 desktop computers and 800 laptops or find new ways to give employees access to our council systems, and preferably on devices that didn't need to be constantly upgraded or managed by our IT staff. Google Chromebooks and Chromeboxes ticked all of these boxes – and more."

Rupert Hay-Campbell, Information/Communications Technology and Information Governance Officer, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham

Since 2014, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham uses Chromebooks and Chromeboxes to future-proof their systems, keeping in mind how users will work over the next decade. With the help of Ancoris, a Google Cloud Premier Partner, this East London community council's IT department rolled out 1,500 Chromebooks initially, with more that soon followed.
