While many enterprises are digging their heads in the sand with the imminent end to support of our beloved Windows XP, the field-based IT team at TNS have been working hard on a new software platform for their 750 market researchers to upgrade to Windows 7 on their existing hardware.

They have seen the sense of urgency because after April 8, Windows XP will no longer receive new security updates or non-security hotfixes and with security high on the agenda for TNS, this was a date to be beaten.

We are delighted to be part of this project and will be responsible for arranging, swapping and recovering the hardware so that all 750 researchers are upgraded within just 6 weeks. This is not the first project we have been awarded for TNS as we have been responsible for the last three hardware refreshes since the entire field-based support was outsourced in 2001.
