Manage PCs as Strategic Assets to Decrease Cost of Ownership

Profile: PC strategies

• TCO reduction of 67% since 1995
• Notebook PCs provide greater than 5% time savings per employee per week
• More capable PCs improve productivity and security, and increase fleet manageability, while reducing TCO

Productivity gains and improved manageability

Our analysis indicates adoption of Intel® vPro™ technology helps us gain greater efficiency in PC manageability, leading to reduced support costs, increased user productivity, and faster problem resolution. We currently are measuring our primary cost and productivity benefits, based on three use cases:

• Remote diagnosis and remote repair
• Remote diagnosis and local repair
• Remote configuration
We expect additional savings over time as we add use cases that focus on security and asset discovery.

Adopting a centralized support model, focusing on technology that enhances PC manageability, and shifting to mobile computing are all investments that align with Intel’s strategic goals and give Intel employees increasing levels of productivity.
