Google Pixel Is First to Come with Zero-Touch Provisioning--Will Your Favorite Be Next?

Does your business use Google’s line of Android devices for business purposes? Well, you might be happy to hear about Google’s new zero-touch solution for enterprises for their Pixel line of smartphones. If you provide smartphones for your business’ employees, you know how much of a hassle it is to set up these devices. This new zero-touch policy attempts to make a change to this.

Google often targets businesses like this with specialized devices designed to make onboarding easier. Examples of these attempts include specialized versions of the Google Play store, additional security features, and even management dashboards to add a high level of customization for their clients. Due to this high level of customization, though, many businesses are finding that it takes quite a lot of time to configure each and every device that they are going to use for their organization. Thus, the need for zero-touch devices becomes quite apparent.

When we talk about zero-touch, we mean devices that are already pre-configured so that your organization doesn’t necessarily have to do as much work to get them ready for action. However, while this might sound like the best way to approach devices, you might find yourself held back at first. For one, zero-touch is a concept that’s only available through certain carrier opt-ins (like Verizon). Another restriction is that it’s only available on Google Pixel devices in the United States. However, other providers like AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile plan on implementing these services soon.

Additionally, third-party Android device manufacturers are willing to go the distance for these solutions. Samsung, HTC, Huawei, Sony, LG, Blackberry, and Motorola all want to bring zero-touch to devices in the coming months.

Despite all of its restrictions, zero-touch solves one of the most difficult parts of managing mobile devices for your organization: multiple devices with different operating systems. You can be confident that there is a uniform OS being used on all of your devices, mainly because there is only one available at this moment. If nothing else, this is something that you can look forward to, along with the time saved by eliminating the time needed to set up each device.

If your business needs mobile devices or mobile device management, reach out to Eclipse Integrated Systems at 800-340-0505.
