Easy deployment and low maintenance

Chrome Device Management allows admins to easily deploy and manage a fleet of devices, including setting user, device and app policies, via a web-based console.

The ease of maintenance of Chrome devices dramatically reduce the cost of ownership and the management overhead compared with traditional PCs.

Multiple layers of security

Chromebooks are kept up to date automatically, so you’ll always have the latest features like Voice Search.  They come with multiple layers of security to help keep you safe from viruses and malware. Best of all, no OS patching is required and all data is encrypted.

Chrome devices are easy to use and share

Devices can be shared as separate accounts for each user to keep individual’s data safe.  This makes them ideal for shared environment or kiosk applications.

They stay synced with your Android phones & tablets, and everywhere you’re signed in with your Google account – so your data stays with you, even when your laptop doesn’t.

With the App Runtime for Chrome (ARC) allowing Android apps to be run on Chrome OS, many more applications are easily accessible.

Ideal for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Chromebooks are designed to access web applications using Google Chrome and share many of the attributes of thin clients.  By deploying a desktop virtualization solution such as Citrix or VMWare, you can also access legacy Windows and UNIX applications in your datacentre or office. Chrome devices have little or no on-board storage, they’re easy to maintain and are affordable. Chromebooks are also extremely portable and much easier to manage and these are big advantages over traditional thin clients.

Chromebooks just work out of the box

Chromebooks are lightweight, “instant-on” devices, fast to use and with a long battery life. Unlike a traditional computer, they won’t slow down over time because updates are automatic and maintenance is easy.

They are the perfect device for web applications such as G Suite to collaborate and communicate, online or offline.  They also work with the myriad apps in the Chrome Web Store.

Chrome device for Meetings

Chromebox for Meetings combines Google Hangouts and a low-cost, easy-to-manage Chromebox, making it simpler for any organisation to have high-quality video meetings without the need for expensive bespoke equipment. Now every meeting room can be a video-conference room and remote users can join from any device, PC, tablet or smartphone in their offices, on-the-road or at home.
