ThinIT™ - Lose the wait

Don't bin it
Don't bin your old computers
With Precedence ThinIT™, you can convert virtually any old PCs to centrally managed thin-clients. The PCs do not need any operating system (which can save money if purchasing refurbished machines) as ThinIT™ will replace software on the hard disc. Installation only takes a few minutes and doesn't even require a CDROM drive (you can install over a network). A ThinIT™ PC doesn't require shutting down; just switch it off when you have finished. All settings are stored centrally, so no configuration is required on each client. When used in conjunction with a Precedence NetManager, the clients can be controlled through any web-browser. If a hard drive fails or a client stops working, reinstallation is extremely quick meaning you can be up and running with the minimum of downtime.

ThinIT™ costs only £35 per machine.

Minimum specifications are:

  • 486 processor or above (66MHz or greater)
  • 64MB RAM
  • 64MB hard disk space
  • Ethernet
  • SVGA video card
