Out of the box, a new desktop (or laptop) is not business-ready. Each new workstation needs to be configured and connected to give your employees access to the applications and files they need to get their jobs done. Megalo Technologies in Branson, MO includes desktop setup in our managed service plans.
Why Desktop Setup is a Managed Service
Assuming that desktop setup is a one-time or as-needed service sets you up for productivity losses and unexpected expenses.
Megalo Tech includes desktop setup in our managed services menu because we expect to be performing this work on a regular basis to execute your lifecycle management plan and/or IT strategic plan.
What Desktop Setup Entails
Desktop setup includes a number of tasks to ensure a new workstation is loaded with the software you want (not the bloatware you don’t) and ready to (securely) communicate with other devices inside and outside your network.
Common desktop setup tasks include:
- Removing bloatware installed by the desktop manufacturer
- Installing software required for network connection and employee operations
- Setting network permissions for the desktop’s IP address (if applicable)
- Testing connections
- Resolving software conflicts (if any)
If the desktop setup is being done to replace an existing workstation, we may even be able to restore or reinstall personalization settings—wallpaper, screen savers, desktop icons, imported browser bookmarks, etc.
Desktop Setup Done Right
The experienced technicians at Megalo Tech do desktop setup right. We make sure users have the right permissions, applications and files to spare you productivity losses.
