New eMazzanti Case Study Sees Productivity and Security Boost for Architect

Hoboken, New Jersey ­- (Vocus Public Relations) April 5, 2010 – A new eMazzanti Technologies case study for its architect customer Prendergast Laurel Architects (PLA) is available at The case study documents the increases in productivity and security surrounding the company’s adoption of the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system in conjunction with new HP 6930p computers.

Problems: Wasted Time, Connectivity, Security

Known for its imaginative use of form and materials, Prendergast Laurel Architects (PLA) has won prestigious awards since its 1979 inception, such as the 2001 New York City Arts Commission Award for Design Excellence for its design of the Staten Island Children’s Museum.

PLA users found that simple procedures like booting a computer up to get ready to work consumed valuable minutes each day which, when multiplied by the number of employees over a year, amounted to large blocks of wasted time.

Mobile users had trouble connecting to networks to communicate and print. Printing was a particular concern as the architectural firm had several specialized, legacy printers that needed to work with new OS software.

Network and file security was also an issue given the competitive nature of PLA’s business and the client confidentiality agreements it must honor with its clients.

Everything PLA Needed to Succeed

PLA has relied on eMazzanti Technologies for nearly a decade. It knew the IT firm would be able to solve the current challenges as well. After assessing their specific needs and goals in-depth, eMazzanti Technologies recommended the HP 6930p EliteBook running Windows 7 Professional.

According to Deborah Laurel, principal of PLA, this solution provided everything PLA had been looking for. “Speed, easier access to information, intuitive, ergonomic design—the HP 6930p EliteBook running Windows 7 Professional gives us all of that,” she says. “And it’s everything we need to succeed.”

In summary, eMazzanti Technologies helped PLA accomplish more of its work in less time, provide essential compatibility with legacy hardware and software, and gained more security and flexibility throughout its network.
