Who Are West Midlands Fire Service?

West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS) is the third-largest fire and rescue service in the UK & only one of two fire services in The UK open 24/7. West Midlands deliver emergency services to 2.83 million residents across seven local authority areas in the West Midlands, England.

The Challenge

WMFS were looking for a partner to design a solution that could deliver a robust and high quality Asset Management Platform with the capabilities of Deploying and Managing Windows 10 to help support the business decision to migrate to Windows 10.

Furthermore, WMFS’s IT teams had access to a platform enabling WMFS to manage images, applications and updates of Windows 10.

Benefits

WMFS benefited from:

  • Reduced time to install and configure a Device Management Platform, capable of Managing Windows 10 Devices across the estate.
  • Single point of management for Applications, Operating Systems and Updates/Patch Management.
  • Rapid adoption to Windows 10 and having capabilities of rolling out Windows 10 to the End User estate as well as managing updates and applications.

For the first time, staff across the Trust will be able to record patient observations electronically, which are then fed into a central system so that they are always updated and available for the care professionals looking after the patient.
The system will bring huge benefits to patients, both in terms of the availability and accuracy of their information and enhancing efficiencies for staff to meet their care needs.
