After adapting to the sudden wave of employees working from home, many organizations are now procuring new devices for end users who may not have a business-ready device at home. What is different this time is that due to "shelter at home" orders, they cannot simply walk up to the Tech Helpdesk and collect their pre-configured PCs. Thanks to Windows Autopilot, you can procure a new device from an OEM or reseller and have that device shipped directly to the user’s home, then automatically provision the right settings, apps, and resource access upon power-on and login. People can be not only productive but also protected within minutes, using automatic enrollment in cloud management tools such as Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
If, like many businesses we’re helping right now, you have never done this before, there are a few pre-requisites you may need to set up. That said, we want you to know that you are not alone. Whether you have prior experience with enabling remote work or are stepping up to a new challenge, you can count on several Microsoft resources to help you succeed, including access to Microsoft FastTrack experts and 24/7 technical support at no additional cost with most Microsoft 365 and EMS licenses.
