If you want a computer that is smart, secure and ready when you are, it’s time for a Chromebook.

A Chromebook is a laptop or tablet using the Google Chrome OS operating system. No need for updates or software, with a Chromebook you can just charge it up, open the lid and start using it right away. Additionally, Chromebook users can also install Android applications from the Google Play Store.

Main features of a Chromebook

Chromebooks are cloud-powered, meaning most of its apps run from the cloud rather than an internal hard drive (as is the case with most traditional laptops)

Chromebooks require less processing power and memory than a traditional laptop device. Due to the minimal hardware requirements of ChromeOS, Chromebooks are typically lighter and smaller than the average laptop.

These devices are more budget-friendly than traditional laptops because Chromebook users are less dependent on their laptop specifications for speed and performance.

Chromebooks are automatically protected against viruses.

Chromebooks need to be charged less often and can last an entire working day.

“Chromebooks have the potential to add 156 extra hours of productivity per healthcare employee per year”.

How Chromebooks can benefit your organisation

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits:

Increased flexibility

Employees can be less restricted to fixed desks and can get easy access to applications and software regardless of when and where they are using Chromebooks.

Greater control

Self-service kiosks and digital signage utilising Chromebooks can help employees keep track of their meetings in real-time.

Improved cost efficiency

Chromebooks can improve operational efficiency and make training more accessible with shared Chrome devices and cloud-based resources.

Enhanced security

Security is at the heart of the Chromebook operating system so employees’ confidential information is protected at all times.

Durability

Chromebooks have robust and military-grade durability and therefore wear well in busy work environments.

Time-saving

Chromebooks in every industry

 

With the popularity of Chromebooks growing beyond the budget-minded buyer alone, more businesses are valuing Chromebooks for fast boot times, lightweight systems, shared devices and overall mobility. These devices are designed to reduce the risk of malware but they also have a lot of other features.

Excessive time spent at fixed workstations & lengthy boot times of traditional digital devices can waste caregivers precious time and energy. Chromebooks are helping to resolve such problems faced by healthcare workers by offering greater flexibility and mobility.
