Save money, improve security and delight your employees by managing Windows 10 like a Smartphone.

The world has changed and the way you manage your enterprise devices needs to evolve with it.

From bring your own to corporate laptops connecting from home, cloud management has never been more of a priority.




“Why can’t my laptop experience be like my smartphone?  Why doesn’t my laptop start-up immediate, why doesn’t the battery last all day and why does it crash?  Why does it need hands-on IT support and why do I have to bring it to the office for an update? 

There is clearly a stark difference in the laptop and smartphone experience.  Both are mobile devices, both run similar chipsets and similar software like Office 365, and both require frequent updates and good security.  So why the difference?

Why do companies have a team of skilled IT people to physically provision laptops but not mobile devices?  Why do they require employees to bring laptops to the office for software updates, but not their smartphones?  Why do laptops need to be sent back to the office to be reconfigured when an employee leaves?  Why do employees need to remember a myriad of passwords for the laptop but enjoy biometrics on their smartphone?”
