Woodroyd Nursery & Children’s Centre
Woodroyd Nursery & Children’s Centre is a registered company and charity that works to enhance the development of children, particularly, but not inclusively, below statutory school age and to advance education, relieve poverty, sickness and distress as well as providing leisure time facilities in the interests of social welfare for families in Bradford, Yorkshire.
The Windows 7 end of life in January 2020 presented a potential risk to the security of the sensitive data handled on a daily basis by the nursery. This includes personal information on children and their parents. Furthermore, performance issues with running a legacy operating system were a potential cause of concern if existing machines were to be used to run Windows 10.
From speaking with PAV about the challenge it was facing, the Nursery decided that instead of upgrading the existing machines they had onsite, a more cost-effective approach to overcome the issue would be to replace the legacy hardware with Windows 10 pre-installed machines. To address the potential performance issues, the second element of the project was to migrate the Nursery to Microsoft 365.
With the effective deployment of Windows 10 that Pavillion were able to provide to Woodroyd, not only does the nursery benefit from the added security features provided in the new version of Microsoft 365, but they also benefit from a boost in user productivity as a result of quicker, higher specification machines. These time savings have created tangible benefits of more efficient use of staff time with not being tied up with slow computers or inefficient collaboration methods.
The adoption of Microsoft 365 has given the Woodroyd team the flexibility to seamlessly and safely access emails, files and folders in order to effectively, efficiently and securely collaborate with their colleagues either from onsite at the nursery, or when working remotely.
Woodroyd’s Non-profit status also allowed it to take advantage of the generous charity pricing offered by Microsoft, and as a result, the team have access to all of the suite of Microsoft 365 productivity tools for a fraction of the standard price.
