Facing a costly refresh for the laptops installed in the police department’s cruisers, Paul Desjardins, Systems Architect for the City of Denton, Texas, deployed Pano Logic virtual desktops instead and brought about huge improvements in police productivity. He stripped down the existing vehicle and staff laptops rather than replacing them, and used Pano Remote keys to provide remote access to Pano virtual desktops. As a result, police officers and facilities managers working in the field have better access to critical information and complete paperwork that had previously had them stuck back at their desks after their shifts had ended. Using Pano virtual desktops also freed the IT staff having to refresh and troubleshoot fleets of laptops that could be just about anywhere in the 62 square mile city. The versatility and simplicity of Pano Logic’s technology has also been a huge hit with Denton’s city manager and other department heads. Read More Video of City of Denton, TX
