Both public and private organizations acknowledge that managing the PC lifecycle becomes more complicated and expensive as the variety of PC devices and employee workstyles increase. In order to be fully productive, different groups of employees have different needs in terms of end-user device hardware, software, and configuration. While IT departments are trying to provide and support a wider range of technology to an increasingly dispersed and mobile workforce, while maintaining low end- user disruption, they are also under a lot of cost pressure. However, consolidating processes and enlisting the help of a vendor partner, such as Dell, might reduce costs and provide expert-level knowledge for better PC lifecycle management operations.

The path forward is clear: the best practices organizations have already taken the first steps to establish a stronghold with the application of Mobile Workforce Management Solutions.
