Modern Workspace Management’s Four Key Pillars
CDW helps organizations engage with MWM through four pillars, strategically mapping CDW’s capabilities to crucial business needs. Whether an organization is in the planning stages or looking to retire devices, MWM can help deliver customizable solutions and services.
Discover and design: In this pillar, companies can make holistic changes to the way they handle device purchasing. CDW helps IT leaders identify their objectives and map out a path to achieve them. Our experts also can help implement a limited rollout to test how new devices perform within a company’s workflows. Organizations with specific device needs can also customize the device build or configuration with CDW’s help.
Deployment: This pillar helps businesses deploy devices more efficiently while controlling cost, managing risk and prioritizing the user experience. Services within this pillar include imaging, configuration, inventory staging and delivery of devices.
Manage: In this pillar, CDW helps organizations seamlessly manage devices, enhance their security, organize collaboration and optimize applications. Companies can also add a global support desk and technical support to answer users’ questions and provide quick fixes.
Refresh and recover: CDW helps businesses properly retire, redeploy, remarket and recycle devices in an environmentally friendly manner. We also can evaluate equipment that may be eligible for buyback. Returned devices receive credit that is added to the organization’s CDW account to be applied to future purchases.
How CDW Can Help With Modern Workspace Management
To develop an MWM plan, organizations work with CDW business development specialists to discuss objectives and decide which MWM capabilities best suit their needs. By offloading duties around MWM, a company can focus on business while CDW covers management responsibilities such as ensuring device security and getting new devices ready to use.
