What Does a Chromebook Deployment Give your Business?

When organizations purchase Chromebooks through Cloud Sherpas, they receive the Chromebook device, management services for the life of the device, three years of Google Enterprise Support and a one-year warranty on hardware directly from the manufacturer. Chromebooks can be used anywhere with all-day battery life, built-in 3G and a full-sized keyboard, making them the perfect fit for many organizations with on-the-go employees.

Because applications, documents and settings are not stored on the device, there’s no need to spend time or money imaging machines or migrating data. Cloud Sherpas focuses on your key use cases and technical requirements so that your administrators and end-users are fully proficient with the platform and have access to all of the tools that they need from day one. Like the device itself, the process is fast, convenient and effective.
