IT Solution for business usage is a landscape that changes all the time. For years now, Abelionni help organizations of all sizes to manage their Apple devices, in mobility or at the office, then started to offer modern management for Windows devices thanks to Autopilot and MDM support, and for some time. We also work with the Google’s Chromebook Enterprise.
Just like Mac a decade ago, those endpoints are bashed by French companies, letting them aside of efficient and cost-saving solutions.
Today, Abelionni is a trusted advisor well known to have rare skills such as mass devices management for all kinds of devices, modern and passwordless identity management, and strategic advice for SMB. We are here to help people to use current and future technology to serve the best their needs.
To success in this mission, we use a whole set of products and services available on the market, without a specific link to one or another, only focusing on quality, user experience and economical safety for our customers. And honestly, Google Workspace and Chromebook Enterprise have their role to play.
This article will be the first of a list dedicated to present the value a Chromebook can bring in an organization. Focusing only on the user experience and the strategic view for the company.
And to start this series, we simply want to demonstrate the deployment process of a Chromebook Enterprise. Discovering this will just take 3min30 of your day.
The starting point to get: there is Chromebook and Chromebook Enterprise. Just like Apple Business Manager and Automated Device Enrollment, or Microsoft with Windows Autopilot, Google offers a way for manufacturers to sell devices preset for business use case. The product owns the management license for Google Workspace (and follow the device once resold) and immediately when unboxed, the enterprise enrollment is offered to the users.
This user experience here is one of the best on the market: system quick to be set, apps automatically and quickly installed thanks to how ChromeOS works, and the all of this without the IT help, only done by an end user at home.
On this video we just saw a complete device deployment with the following steps:
language and accessibility setup;
mandatory WiFi access;
device enrollment (with passowrdless authentication when used at Abelionni);
asset management informations (optional) ;
local account passwords set up.
This process in the hands of the end user does not require any technical training, no complexity is exposed, and deliver a just unboxed device with all corporate data (Google Workspace or Microsoft 365) available few seconds after the deployment.
