Broadcaster SBS has selected Acer and its partner, Leading Solutions, to fulfill its latest ICT hardware procurement.Acer will provide SBS with around 800 desktops, notebooks and LCD monitors as part of the three year contract. The package also includes design, project management, installation, testing, support and after sales care services. The joint offering through Acer and channel partner Leading Solutions will also customise SBS' business model to meet its current financial needs.Greg Koen, manager, information systems group technology & development, SBS, said the broadcaster had been an Acer customer for some time past. Until recently, SBS used an old 486 unit operating as an intranet server.“I inherited it and modified the unit with Slackware Linux and plenty of extra RAM and it performed dutifully for over ten years,” he said. “The Acer unit only received minor damage after a new year’s accident, when a well refreshed individual crashed through a skylight at SBS directly onto the computer. The unit is still functional today.”
