Less waiting on new hardware to arrive through a streamlinedprovisioning process and less overhead with respect to warehousing andinventory means PCs make it into the hands of workers quicker. It’s productivitystraight from the box allowing you to simply login to your preferred device and go to work no matter where you are.”
