3 Signs It’s Time to Adopt Google Chrome Enterprise

These days, everyone is talking about remote work. How long will it last? Will organizations keep doing it now that they’ve tried it? And how do you get the best results out of your team and your computing environment? 

In this era of growing remote work, a new worker has emerged: the cloud worker who needs to work securely from any device and any location. They want to use cloud-connected apps and expect speed, collaboration and convenience from their work technology. They want to be remote-ready.

The question is: Is your company genuinely remote-ready for the long haul? That’s an important, timely consideration primarily if you’re still relying on older devices and operating systems that aren’t necessarily designed for secure cloud computing and a “work-from-anywhere” approach.  

Supporting the Cloud Worker

As the report notes, “...thriving in this digital age is not just about implementing the latest technology; it is about putting the essential pillar of your business — your people — at the forefront of business technology decisions.”

Now’s the time to assess whether or not you are empowering your cloud workforce and addressing the needs of workers at every level, from directors to those on the frontline. All need to be connected, efficient and collaborative, no matter what role they play in your organization.

Have you explored what it would take to adopt a cloud-native solution, such as Google Chrome Enterprise, across your organization?

Now’s the time to assess whether or not you are empowering your cloud workforce and addressing the needs of workers at every level, from directors to those on the frontline. All need to be connected, efficient and collaborative, no matter what role they play in your organization.

3 Signs It’s Time to Adopt Google Chrome Enterprise

1. Your existing technology can’t keep up with remote-work demand.

end your remote work dayAre you spending too much time and budget keeping your legacy-based technology updated to keep pace with the needs of your remote workers? Google Chrome Enterprise devices are made for life in the cloud, right out of the box. 

You don’t have to worry about time-consuming software updates or connecting to a clunky VPN. Streamlined fleet management and connectivity are baked into the Chrome OS.

A joint report from Forrester and Google Cloud, "The Total Economic ImpactTM of Chrome devices for knowledge workers,” reports up to $2.22 million in IT management and service savings with Google Chrome Enterprise over three years.

What’s more, Chrome devices boot up quickly and maintain their speed as they age. This speedy boot-up means workers no longer have to wait for a bogged-down legacy device to load to get to work. And, save and sync apps, preferences, and extensions work across any Chrome device to help them remain productive no matter where they work.

2. Your workers regularly use browser-based apps during the workday.

By now, most users are familiar with the secure Chrome browser. Many of them probably even use it at home as their web browser of choice. 

As more of these workers turn to web-based apps to do their jobs and collaborate and connect, it makes sense to use devices designed specifically for the cloud.

Chrome Enterprise devices are built on this OS-based browser, giving users a familiar interface as they work in the cloud.

3. You want a secure way for cloud workers to do their job remotely.

Chrome devices inherently protect against threats that often take down complete legacy systems. The OS delivers regular updates and security patches and blocks harmful apps. The read-only OS is impervious to ransomware, a growing threat.

The same Forrester/Google Cloud report mentioned above also indicates that the Chrome browser reduced security incidents by more than 97% over three years.

In today’s world, remote working is fast becoming the norm rather than an option. When you give your teams the tools they need to stay connected and productive, you’re only upping the odds for success. With Google Chrome Enterprise, you’re also giving them a familiar interface — one that easily integrates with your existing infrastructure to empower your cloud workforce.
