The benefits of Chrome

Smarter devices.

No upgrades. Interested? 

Work smarter with Chrome, the world’s most popular browser and secure, cloud-connected operating system. Chrome is the foundation for a new generation of modern, cloud-based business technologies that just keep getting smarter. 

Keep up to date with Chrome OS 

Work with the newest technology 

Eliminate costly software or licensing fees with this smart, seamless experience for end-users across multiple devices. Every time you boot up a Chrome device, it downloads the newest OS updates for free.

Stay safe with powerful security 

Widely considered to be the most secure operating system, Google Chrome has security built-in at every level to provide end-to-end protection, securely supporting employees across your enterprise.

Save money with easier management 

Eliminate expenses such as software upgrades, downtime, IT ops, maintenance, and training with an easy-to-manage system that improves over time with less IT maintenance. 

Keep smart with intelligent updates 

Every time you turn on a Chrome device, it checks for system upgrades. That means your Chrome device gets smarter every time you use it. 

Win in the Cloud with
Google Chromebooks

Get up and running in less than 7 seconds

Chromebooks never slow down over time. They only get faster by automatically downloading updates, making your work experience reliable and productive.

Access all your favorite Google tools

Cloud-based productivity tools are built into Chromebooks, so you can access all your information anywhere in seconds.

Feel safe with next-level security

With built-in virus protection and multiple layers of security, you can have peace of mind that your data is secure.

Relax with easy setup

IT administrators can provision new users, set Chromebook device policies, and configure apps by groups or for all users in minutes, a great solution for schools and small to medium-sized businesses.

Leverage modern design features

The Chromebook is ultra-thin and light. It also has a battery that lasts all day, so you don’t have to scout for outlets, making on-the-go work easy.

Know the score with Google TCO Calculator for Enterprise

See how Chromebooks can help lower costs, simplify operations, and reduce security risks, downtime, and lost productivity over a 3-year period. 

This calculator is designed to help you estimate the full scope of the costs and benefits of switching from Windows-based devices to Google Chromebooks. The calculation is based on a detailed Economic Value Validation developed by ESG, a third-party firm providing market intelligence services to the IT community. 

Simplify your life with Chrome Device Management

  • Simplify management for 10 or 10,000 devices
    Provision, configure, and manage Chrome devices across the enterprise from one central location, and easily manage a single user, group, or the entire company in minutes. 
  • Manage access for ultimate control
    Regulate who can log into company devices. Disable guest mode, external users, or create various levels of access for guest accounts, and easily blacklist, whitelist, or pre-install apps, URLs, or extensions.
  • Manage devices company-wide
    Configure devices to each department’s or employee’s specifications, while staying within overall compliance standards. Customize your devices to meet each team’s specific needs.
  • Manage the user experience with customizable features
    You’re in control of the user experience as you install or update apps, bookmarks, or settings centrally across all devices for brand standards, kiosks, and shared work stations. 

Keep productive with Grab and Go

With the Google Grab and Go program, your users can quickly and easily self-checkout loaner Chromebooks for immediate use. Whether your users’ machines are lost, broken, stolen, or they simply need loaners for a day, you’ll keep them productive with a Chromebook on hand, and IT support happy. 

As easy as 1, 2, 3

  1. Grab

    Your employees grab Chromebooks from the shelf when they need it. 

  2. Go 

    They sign into their profile and get to work, extending the device’s loan time if necessary. 

  3. Return

    When it’s due, they put the Chromebook back on the shelf and plug it in.
