The service is aimed at helping businesses with little or no IT resources, according to the company. The subscription even features tech coaching for team members and access to valuable IT insight reports outlining device health, user experience, and recommendations.
That team can handle all elements of hardware management – from device setup and software implementation to supporting device encryption, platform and device security, in addition to any hardware fixes, the company said.
