Moving to a workforce model that is hybrid by design rather than remote by necessity brings new challenges associated with provisioning IT equipment. With some staff rarely or never in the same place as the end user computing IT team, getting the right devices in the right hands at the right time requires a new approach.
If your organization is still distributing end user devices centrally, it’s time to consider approaches like Zero Touch, where devices can be shipped and configured with no need to have them processed by your organization’s IT team.
Combined with SHI’s Reserved Inventory capabilities (see Step 2), Zero Touch is the ideal way to fast-track the provisioning of ready-to-go devices direct to end users’ homes or remote branch offices.
A key consideration with Zero Touch is device and platform cross-compatibility. While many manufacturers now support their own take on Zero Touch, SHI gives you the ultimate flexibility in a single solution with support all major device types and platforms, including Windows 10, Mac OS, iOS, Android, Chrome OS and Oculus.
