5 Ways ChromeOS Can Level Up Your Business

Did you know that 91% of small business owners work more than 40 hours a week?¹ When you’re busy, you know how important it is to have the hardware and software that allows for efficient and intuitive operations. Upgrading your devices and device management isn’t just for big businesses anymore. 

ChromeOS device management through Chrome Enterprise Upgrade unlocks the built-in business capabilities of ChromeOS devices for IT to secure, orchestrate, and power the workforce, with 24/7 IT admin support.

Whether you’re selecting the right device for your workers, or you’re ready to boost efficiency for your business with a speedy, intuitive, and safe device management solution like Chrome Enterprise Upgrade, we’ve got you covered with the top five benefits of switching your small business to secure, cloud-first computing with ChromeOS. 

 

The Benefits of ChromeOS for Small Businesses

1. Put Money Back in Your Pocket

Belt tightening and budget cuts sound familiar? More than ever, small businesses are keeping an eye on the numbers across every department. 

Save money up front and over time. ChromeOS devices deliver a cost savings of up to 65% compared to the devices they replaced, plus you save more in the long run—about $1,700 per device over three years with time efficiencies, cost savings, and productivity gains.²

You can learn more about simplifying and saving with ChromeOS in this on demand webinar presented by Google’s Lawrence Lui, a ChromeOS product manager.

2. Keep Management Simple

Your IT team juggles a lot in the day-to-day, including time-consuming employee onboarding.

ChromeOS devices deploy 63% faster than other operating systems, so it’s quick and easy to get your people up and running.2

 


Chrome Enterprise Upgrade unlocks the built-in business capabilities of ChromeOS devices. With zero-touch enrollment, drop ship managed devices straight to employees in an easy three-step process. Employees can sign in to your business network as soon as they connect to Wi-Fi. 

And with default, Google-recommended policies and customized rules, taking control of all your distributed ChromeOS devices and their settings is simple. In fact, it’s 36% easier to manage than other operating systems.2

3. Get Enterprise-Level Security

With cyberattacks at an all-time high, staying secure is a top priority—but getting enterprise-level security doesn’t mean you need to be an enterprise.

With built-in protection, managed ChromeOS devices have 24% fewer security attacks2 and have never had a reported ransomware attack. Ever.*

 


ChromeOS is the most secure OS, out of the box3. ChromeOS is designed with built-in security features such as automatic updates, sandboxing, and verified boot. ChromeOS device management extends these capabilities by enabling administrators to enforce policies like device encryption, application allowlisting, and remote device wiping, force re-enrollment, and enable sign-in restrictions to ensure data stays in the right hands. 

Bonus: ChromeOS has 26% faster security updates than competitors.²
