A LANCASHIRE practice is believed to be the first in the country to install a computing system which cuts maintenance costs by keeping all data in a central store.
Eight-partner Brighouse Jones has dispensed with the need to have a PC on every desk by installing Videss Computer Systems' Network Computing product, a system which uses a central server as its base.
Videss claims that the product makes it easier to eliminate the threat of viruses and maintain the system because information is stored in a central server rather than in each PC. Office disruption is reduced because upgrading work takes place only at the server.
Chris Rose, Videss' sales director, said: "Having a central server gives greater control over the computer system, and prevents people from installing maverick software."
