Spordrift: On Track to Secure Cloud Printing
Printix provides secure cloud-based printing across 50 sites for Norwegian civil engineering company Spordrift.
Spordrift was formed from Bane Nor and as part of this transition, the Spordrift retained 1,223 staff members, some of whom now work from shared offices with Bane Nor staff. As part of the new company structure, a dedicated cloud-based IT infrastructure was set up. This infrastructure had to service the 50 Spordrift sites at points across the main train lines in Norway.
The resultant IT infrastructure model was referred to as “Track Drive”. At the core of the Track Drive, the IT solution included Microsoft Azure with Azure AD, Microsoft 365, and Office 365, as well as devices managed through Intune. Printix was chosen as the cloud print management system within the Track Drive infrastructure. In a collaborative deployment effort involving system integrator Sopra Steria and Printix, the Spordrift team rolled out printers to all 50 offices.
“A model IT environment based in the cloud was the goal. This infrastructure included Microsoft 365 and, importantly, a modern print solution.”
