NEW AG Embraces Workplace Flexibility with FlexScan and USB Type-C | EIZO
NEW AG is a municipal service provider with strong ties to Niederrhein, Germany. The group operates a number of local affiliates in Mönchengladbach, Erkelenz, Geilenkirchen, Grevenbroich, Viersen, Schwalmtal, and Tönisvorst. In addition to supplying power and water in the region, its other business fields include public transportation and public swimming facilities. NEW AG has been exclusively using EIZO monitors since 2000. The company is fitting their new workplaces with the FlexScan EV2795 from EIZO.
In 2017, NEW AG set itself the goal of providing a modern workplace for its employees. “We inspire people” is the motto behind the vision of the NEW AG’s strategic project – and it has succeeded in implementing this vision gradually over time. The focus is on ensuring the health and well-being of employees at the workplace. In addition to new room designs and open workspaces, this also means providing employees with a modern workplace equipped with the latest technology to enable them to work on the go, no matter where they are.
Since 2000, NEW AG has been exclusively using EIZO monitors in different sizes (currently: 24-inch, 27-inch, and 32-inch) in single and multi-display configurations. “We continue to be impressed by the high quality and durability of EIZO products,” states Jürgen Trumm, Head of IT at NEW AG. “If any of our monitors happens to unexpectedly break, they are covered under EIZO’s five-year warranty, which includes an on-site replacement service. That’s up to three years longer than what other companies typically offer.”

“We have enjoyed a strong working relationship with EIZO for many years, primarily because of their strong commitment to service and finding solutions that work best for us,” adds Sven-Matthias Schoss, IT Purchase Manager/Central Purchasing at NEW AG.
A modern workplace requires standardized monitor solutions. NEW was searching for a model that was right for their needs and ultimately opted for the EIZO FlexScan EV2795, which meets all the criteria that a monitor has to meet for working on the go and desk sharing.
“With a screen size of 27 inches, the EV2795 is ideal for us and can be used as a docking and charging station thanks to its USB-C port. This allows any peripheral device to be connected directly to the monitor. They are ready to use once the laptop is connected to the monitor via USB-C. The monitor also charges the laptop at the same time. This eliminates the need for an additional power supply or a docking station and opens up more space on the desk for other things. Another plus for us is the EV2795’s modern, virtually frameless design,” explains Stefan Klein, NEW Group Manager for IT Frontend.

On the question of how the EV2795 meets NEW’s requirements in terms of climate and environmental protection as well as sustainability, which play a major role at the company, Jürgen Trumm responded, “The monitor is equipped with various power management functions like Auto EcoView, which constantly adjusts the brightness of the screen to the available ambient light. In addition, the power consumption of the EIZO monitors has continued to go down as screen sizes have gone up.”
The first 800 modern workplaces are now available for NEW employees. By 2022, every workplace will feature a standard setup, which means more than 1800 EV2795 monitors will be in use. We have already received initial feedback on the EV2795: the single-cable USB-C solution is a real hit and users really like the modern design.
