For organizations with limited IT funds and resources, the costs involved with setting up new PCs for employees can begin to add up. Global enterprise software spending will be around $321 billion in 2016, a 4.2 percent increase from 2015, according to research and advisory firm Gartner.
One way to help manage IT costs within your organization is to deploy a custom imaging solution to provision PC systems quickly across the enterprise. Recent estimates from Gartner suggest that the cost to deploy a new employee computer can cost several hundred dollars.
With custom imaging, valuable time is not taken away from internal IT teams. Instead, the time-intensive process of imaging and configuring PCs is reduced thanks to automation. When system updates or new programs need to be applied across the enterprise, custom images can be installed at scale, reducing the length of the deployment window.
Bringing imaging to scale also guarantees an accurate set up each and every time. This results in less time that the IT staff is spending addressing problems with an end user’s device.
Another added benefit to custom imaging is enhanced security, since each device is set up with the exact settings each time. Automation eliminates the chance for mistakes or issues to arise when configuring the PC.
