Despite Guitar Center’s commitment to providing good in-store experience, the company struggled to maintain consistency across its more than 250 stores in the United States. To stay competitive in today’s retail environment, Guitar Center officials knew they needed to achieve a level of stability and consistency across all of their stores. One method they used was to make a concerted shift toward Mac-based platforms. Although the company had taken a step toward stability, they knew more work needed to be done to ensure that hardware operated the same way at every single store. The answer was Faronics Deep Freeze.
With Deep Freeze, Guitar Center’s centralized IT team has been able to create a unified set of system configurations that can be implemented across all store computers. In addition, when needing to install a critical system update for every machine, IT staff can use Deep Freeze’s built-in command line scripts to automate that process. This way, the company can ensure that regardless of what store a person visits, he or she will enjoy the same great customer experience.
The recent implementation of the Common Core State Standards Initiative has placed more pressure on school districts in the United States to enhance their online and digital testing capabilities. In addition, the district’s involvement with the Partnership for Assessment for College and Careers as well as the Colorado Measures of Academic Success further drove the need for reliable online testing processes.
The school district had purchased Chromebooks in an attempt to address these issues, as they offered more reliability than the PCs being used. However, acquiring Chromebooks for the sole purpose of handling annual testing needs presented a potentially unwise investment. Officials wanted multi-purpose devices to be leveraged in everyday classrooms. They looked to Faronics Deep Freeze to provide the stability and consistency they needed from their Windows machines.
