- Device registration – We will automatically add the new devices you lease to the Windows Autopilot deployment service for you.
- Profile creation and assignment – Customise set up and configuration by creating a profile to assign to your organisation’s devices and make sure your employees have everything they need on their device.
- Shipping – Once everything has been put onto the device, we will then deliver this straight to your employee to where you would like it go to. All you have to do then is simply turn the device on, go online and Windows Autopilot delivers apps and settings.
