You’re the resident IT decision maker for a fast-growing company that has recently opened a new office.  A new hire named Leah started this morning.  Your company mission statement of efficiency and innovation aligns with her personal values. It’s near the end of her first day and you still haven’t been able to set up her workstation.  While you’re spending precious time chasing down the device and trouble-shooting issues, her opinion of her new IT team and new employer begins to sour.

Whether a company is expanding and onboarding new employees, or is deploying replacement PCs, Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE could save the day.

Why is it so hard to get the right PCs into the hands of employees? We’re talking about a process that hasn’t changed for years. Change can be good – the way forward. My team at Dell wants to give IT the time and headspace to focus on bigger problems, rather than spending more time than necessary setting up new hires and deploying new devices to existing end users.

That’s why we created Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE, which provides a ready-to-work experience for employees. Here’s how it works:

  • We streamline configuration and delivery by provisioning PCs with applications, settings, domain and directory join info and more, in advance.
  • The PC is delivered, and at first boot the user sees a few setup screens, then signs in to Workspace ONE.
  • Once authenticated, employees can access a personalized app catalog.

There’s no need for unhappy employees – whether it’s end users waiting for PCs, or IT departments mired in manual configuration and imaging, repackaging and reshipment. It’s all done for you, from edge to core to cloud. And if you are looking for more support, we can provide services throughout the lifecycle with PC as a Service.

Cloud-based management from VMware Workspace ONE is integrated with the Dell Client Command Suite tools that customers already love for BIOS and system updates, and power management, to name a few.

We are committed to supporting our customers, wherever they are on their journey to cloud-based management. Our new provisioning solution delivers value to customers, efficiently and intelligently. We are committed to you.
