Data Strategy announces Replacement Computer Package as QC-Check outlasts Windows’ operating system

Data Strategy has announced the availability of a Replacement Computer Package to address an unusual circumstance most products will never see.

Known globally as the quality assurance and electrical safety workhorse, early adopters of QC-Check workstation were supplied with computers running Microsoft Windows 7.  This operating system, released in 2009, went into an end of life programme in January 2020 and, for security reasons, best practice is to update to the current version of Windows. The QC-Check Replacement Computer Package is a quick and simple solution that is shipped ready to go.


Customers including Nottinghamshire-based Trans-Sport, London’s Royal Opera house and The NEC Arena, Birmingham, have already benefitted from the Replacement Computer Package for a secure and streamlined continuation of service.

Managing director of Trans-Sport, Shaun Cope, confirmed, “Outwardly we experienced no problems whatsoever with QC-Check. It’s always worked perfectly and continued to do so. However, our IT company recommended we replace the computer with one configured with Windows 10.  Following a quick chat with Iain at Data Strategy, the replacement computer was shipped and ready to go. It required no effort from us whatsoever and the transition was smooth and simple.

Data Strategy managing director, Iain Roche, explained, “Whilst the functionality of the QC-Check workstation remains unaffected, from a security and reliability viewpoint it is expedient to install a new computer.”

The Replacement Computer Package includes the computer supplied in a 19” rack mount steel shelf, as well as tailored configuration and commissioning. The new computer can simply be swapped out with the old hardware, connected, and turned on. All necessary cables are supplied.
