IT Consultant Saves Hours of Labor Using PCmover Business
Whidbey Tech Solutions provides a variety of IT services ranging from new PC deployments and upgrading Windows to the latest version, to working with clients on “anything they don’t want to do.” Each client has their own wish list of services for Whidbey Tech to provide, but according to Technician David Cooney, there is often one common thread: a lot of Windows 7 computers.
As a result of Windows 7 reaching the end of support in January, small and large businesses alike are moving to Windows 10. For some, the transition took place well before support for Windows 7 ended, while others elected to pay for Extended Support Updates from Microsoft — and some are simply using Windows 7 without the latest updates. But if they haven’t yet switched to Windows 10, they will need to do so in the near future, and that transition is one of the many tasks that Whidbey Tech handles for its clients.
“In the past, ... setting up brand-new computers and getting all the applications reinstalled and set up could take us upwards of two or three hours for a single computer. Now using PCmover, that same complex migration usually takes only an hour." — David Cooney, Technician
Laplink’s PCmover Business Technician License gives IT service providers the flexibility of only paying for the migrations they perform. They are simply invoiced for that using the following month. PCmover Business is bundled in monthly allowances of 5, 10, 25, or 50 uses, so the service provider can choose the appropriate level of usage and then pay as they go — without a monthly minimum. This model allows them to better prepare for client needs with minimal financial investment.
“There are a lot of Windows 7 machines being replaced,” Cooney said. “But we weren't entirely sure how to forecast how often we're going to use PCmover, so having a license from Laplink where we can use the software to help replace up to 50 PCs per month and pay as we go was very helpful.”
“… After many successful migrations, I am quite surprised with the time savings and impressed with PCmover’s ability to automatically migrate programs, files and settings.” — David Cooney, Technician
Cooney said that not only has Laplink’s Technician Licensing allowed for more flexibility and better service to its clients but using PCmover Business has also streamlined their process.
“In the past, doing a particularly complicated computer migration where we were setting up brand-new computers and getting all the applications reinstalled and set up could take us upwards of two or three hours for a single computer. Now using PCmover, that same complex migration usually takes only an hour.”
