As a Google Cloud Premier Partner we have experience of large-scale deployments of Chrome devices and can provide you with advice and advanced support. Here are some of the most frequently asked question when it comes to Chrome Enterprise.
How many Chrome Enterprise licences do I need to purchase?
You need to buy one licence per device. The Chrome Enterprise licence allows you to enroll your devices within your G Suite domain and set device policies.
How can I reassign a Chrome Enterprise licence?
As per the Google Help Center, perpetual Chrome Enterprise licences are not transferable between devices. If you encounter a hardware issue and need to replace a Chrome device, the licence can be transferred to a replacement of the same model. Using the deprovisioning feature within the Admin console on a damaged device will free up its licence, allowing you to enroll the same model replacement.
Each perpetual licence lasts for the lifetime of the device it is enrolled on. Each device model is supported until it reaches End of Life. For more information about End of Life and the associated dates for each model, please visit the Chrome Auto Update Policy page.
For annual licences you can unenroll a device and transfer the subscription to another device (of any model) in the same domain.
Why do I need to specify a G Suite domain on my order?
Chrome Enterprise policies are defined within a G Suite / Cloud Identity domain. When a user from your domain logs into a Chrome Device (or Chrome for Windows/Linux/Mac), they are subject to these policies. Without a G Suite / Cloud Identity domain you are unable to push policies to Chrome Devices. For more information about the policies available to G Suite administrators please see http://goo.gl/P5tgc.
Your G Suite domain must be in a verified state before you place your order with Ancoris. Please make sure you are able to login to your G Suite domain (http://admin.google.com) and that there is no warning about verifying the domain before you place your order.
Who should I list as the technical contact when placing an order?
If you don’t have an existing G Suite domain, a Google Enterprise Support login will be created for the technical contact so it should be someone who should have Super Administrator privileges to your G Suite domain.
Who are my G Suite Super Administrators?
If you purchased your G Suite licences through Ancoris please call 0845 2626 750.
If you didn’t purchase your G Suite licences through Ancoris please call your own G Suite Partner.
If you purchased your G Suite licences directly from Google please contact Google Support.
When will my order be shipped?
Orders will be dispatched within 3 working days. A signature will be required for delivery.

Why do I need to buy all my Chrome Device for Meetings from the same reseller?
If you have already purchased a Hangouts Meet Hardware or annual Chrome Enterprise licence from a Google reseller, Google does not allow the annual licence to be purchased from any other reseller.
Annual licences can only be transferred to a new reseller at renewal time. If you wish to discuss your options, please contact us.
How are my Hangouts Meet Hardware licences pro-rated when buying additional devices?
All licences within a single Google domain are co-termed with a common renewal date.
For additional Hangouts Meet Hardware devices which are purchased during an existing annual term, a pro-rated licence quote will be issued to reflect only the number of months remaining in your annual term.
What are the terms of the licence agreement?
