Everdream Delivers Desktop Application Expertise for Leading Global Manufacturer at Significant Cost Savings and Productivity Gains

Everdream Corporation, the leading provider of hosted and managed PC services, today announced Taiyo Yuden (U.S.A.) Inc., a global supplier of materials and electronics technology, has selected Everdream to provide web-hosted asset management, anti-virus, software distribution, remote control and help desk services to its employees in eight locations throughout the United States and Mexico. Taiyo Yuden chose to outsource its desktop management needs to Everdream to reduce IT costs and better allocate its limited IT staff to higher-priority network and supply chain projects.

As a leading manufacturer of surface-mount and leaded passive electronic components, Taiyo Yuden's business strategy includes a balance of in-house and outsourced IT expertise to create global standards with materials and electronics that improve business performance in R&D, technology innovation and production for customers worldwide. Everdream’s managed services give Taiyo Yuden an added competitive advantage through better allocation of their limited IT resources, so the company can focus in-house expertise and resources on their own core competencies and increase customer satisfaction.

With eight sales offices throughout the U.S. and a remote end user base of more than 150 employees, Taiyo Yuden was particularly impressed with Everdream’s Remote Control tool which allows the company to tap directly into end user PCs from anywhere and provide instant support and resolution to desktop applications. Everdream’s managed Virus Protection service is also key to Taiyo Yuden to pre-empt potential viruses, of particular importance in their Mexico operation where computer viruses run rampant. Everdream Asset Management has eliminated the need for manual tracking of distributed assets, providing automatic updates and greatly increasing IT productivity.

“The Everdream implementation was seamless and deployed in record time,” said Joe Wilkinson, vice president of Finance and Administration for Taiyo Yuden U.S.A. “Everdream’s services have enabled us to achieve more than 50 percent savings in personnel and software licensing costs, and made it possible for us to redirect IT staff on business-critical infrastructure and supply chain projects. In addition, our employees now receive comprehensive, dedicated support for all Microsoft Office inquiries and issues—an area of expertise that we do not have in-house.”

Specifically, the Everdream Asset Management Suite allows the Taiyo Yuden IT staff to maintain a precise hardware and software inventory for PC and mobile systems across the organization. Everdream’s patented Software Distribution service enables the rapid deployment of any application to any online user at any time—automatically. Web-based Remote Control allows connection to any system from anywhere in the Internet regardless of NAT or Firewall issues. Everdream’s offering includes comprehensive help desk, delivering live 24x7 support with industry leading service guarantees. Finally, Everdream’s Online Backup service protects users by securely and automatically backing up data to fully redundant, off-site data facilities.

“Taiyo Yuden exemplifies 21st century business-IT strategy execution at its best by relying on a practical blend of in-house and outsourced IT resources to improve desktop support processes,” said Gary Griffiths, president and CEO of Everdream. “We’re pleased that Everdream’s services are helping Taiyo Yuden to increase their investments in core competencies for which they are noted: product innovation and supply chain management.”
