Evere is a Belgian municipality with 43.000 inhabitants, in the Brussels-Capital Region. In the municipal administration, there are about 300 computer users, working in different departments each with their own needs and work requirements. At the end of 2019, the IT team was looking for a simple and secure solution to enable teleworking for their employees. They found Awingu!
- Simple Citrix alternative: Previously they were using Citrix for all its users within the administration, as well as to allow employees to work remotely on an occasional basis. However, over time limitations encountered with certain specific business applications, which resulted in a mixed fleet of classic computers and Citrix workstations. With Awingu, they can simply access every application on any device.
- Transparent licensing model: They find the licensing model transparent and very easy, “especially when compared to other solutions like Citrix or VMware, where you need a consultant just to explain the model to you. Awingu offers competing licenses, so the only choice you have to make is whether to buy or rent the licenses.”
- Buying via CIBG: The municipality was very pleased that they could purchase Awingu through the CIBG’s central purchasing office. This means you can buy licenses in compliance with public procurement legislation but without the administrative burden. They heard about this possibility via a colleague from other Awingu customer Sint-Agatha-Berchem and they immediately saw the great advantage.
