In education, the sale of Chromebooks has skyrocketed in the last year. According to The Wall Street Journal, one fifth of devices sold to schools last year were Chromebooks. These lightweight laptops run on Google’s Chrome operating system and are designed to work faster and easier than the traditional computer. Chromebooks offer built-in access to the best Google Apps, advanced security, and an easy-to-use central management system that allows school IT personnel to manage all of their Chromebooks from one device.
Even here at Forward Edge we have seen a huge increase in Chromebook purchases over the last year, and we don’t see this trend changing anytime soon! Forward Edge now offers a new service to complement this growing trend; we call it our Chromebook Ready, Set, GO! Service.
Chromebook Ready, Set, GO! was designed to make ordering Chromebooks for your school easy! After making your purchase, we don’t want you to have to worry about anything else. Wouldn’t it be nice to have all of your computers Ready to GO! ?
