The Krone Group has expanded strongly in recent decades - new locations and thus many new employees have been integrated into the group. For the IT department this means: Continuously purchasing, configuring and maintaining new computers and making the entire infrastructure fit for further growth.
Expressed in numbers, this means: 1,200 computers a few years ago have now become about 2,500 PCs; these are managed and maintained by the 30 employees in the Krone IT team. The computing centres are located at the two main German sites in Spelle (production of agricultural machinery) and Werlte (production of commercial vehicles).
Around 2,500 computers are currently registered in the network - most clients are Windows-based, and so are the servers. In addition there are some Linux computers.
