What if I said it’s possible to seamlessly connect your company’s devices to the cloud under a single, secure operating system — from employee laptops, desktops and mobile phones and other devices?

“But,” you say, “I already can do this with my existing PC, applications and browser. I’m locked into those, and they work."

Are you sure? Or, deep down, are you looking to streamline and improve your office technology across all areas? If so, using Google Chrome Enterprise for your organization’s work environment might be the answer.

Before you tell me that you’ve used Chrome and don’t need a new browser, let me tell you the full story.

Google Chrome is More than a Browser

This is not the Chrome you used even a year ago. The Chrome experience has grown well beyond being a free browser. It’s now a complete enterprise solution that includes an incredibly powerful operating system and cloud connected devices for secure cloud computing.

When you use Chrome Enterprise, your organization will enjoy all the benefits of the Chrome OS across all areas for your organization, including greater productivity, better control, increased security — and around-the-clock support.

Using Chrome devices, employees work primarily while connected to the Internet. Since the devices run only Chrome OS or virtualized apps, software and documents are securely and reliably stored in the cloud not on the computer’s hard drive. All of this can elevate your organization’s productivity, collaboration and return on investment.

Can My Organization Save with Google Chrome Enterprise?

You don’t have to dive in headfirst to start exploring all that Chrome has to offer. It’s fine to dip your toe into the water to see how it feels.

In fact, why not consider one of these three ways to test out the Chrome experience at your office?

  1. Upgrade to Chrome OS

    Using the Chrome web browser as its primary interface, Chrome OS is a familiar experience. It provides easy and secure access to all your cloud-based tools. With built-in security and regular updates, you can feel confident that your devices are safe and secure. Free up your IT team, so they can handle larger projects.

  2. Use Chrome Browser

    This is the portal for all you do using Chrome devices, including mobile computing. At the enterprise level, Chrome allows you to set up groups, configure employee applications and improve internet security. Chrome has built-in malware and phishing protection; security fixes are pushed automatically by Google. It’s worry free.

  3. Replace Desktops with Chrome Devices

    Replacing old PCs with new Google Chrome devices might seem like a costly venture. But, as Google notes, it’s possible to cut total cost of ownership by nearly 75 percent over three years. Most major manufacturers offer Chromebooks. The devices are simple, intuitive, run at lightning speed — and use the highest levels of security. In fact, they boot up in less than eight seconds, always with the most secure and up-to-date operating system.

By starting smaller and trying it for yourself, you’ll soon learn how this secure platform drive digital transformation within your organization. When you say “yes” to a Chrome experience, you’ll tap into a comprehensive endpoint solution that gives you easy central management, greater productivity and improved collaboration along with with a measurable return on investment.
