Soprim@ runs 15 residential care facilities for elderly people in Flanders. In the past, the IT environments in Soprim@’s residential care facilities were managed locally, often with no dedicated ICT manager on-site. The local networks in the elderly homes and care facilities depended on cheap switches bought for 15 euros in local retail shops.
IT-partner Ferranti was selected to implement a new, future-proof IT infrastructure that included 425 Cisco Meraki access points in 12 locations. Today, ICT Manager Koen De Vos manages the whole network in 12 locations through a single cloud-based management dashboard, freeing up time for more strategic projects.
“I can now manage a complex multi-site IT network via a single central dashboard or app on my smartphone. Basically, instead of jumping into my car, I just have to make a swipe or click the mouse!” (Koen De Vos, IT Manager, Soprim@)
