Google recently announced the launch of Chrome Enterprise Grab-and-Go, its new Chromebook loaner program for business. The service provides businesses with a multitude of fully-charged Chromebooks that always are ready for use. Accordingly, employees can pick up and use these computers at their leisure. Ultimately, Google’s objective with its Chrome Enterprise system is to encourage companies to recruit businesses to join the technology company’s vast software and hardware community.

Last year, Google launched its Chrome Enterprise subscription service, which enabled businesses to purchase Chromebooks for their organizations at an annual rate of $50 dollar per Chromebook. With its new Grab-and-Go program, Google only is supplying the source code, procured from its own internal loaner management system via GitHub—not the Chromebooks or charging racks themselves.

Nonetheless, Google’s new initiative alleviates two common business employee and shareholder pain points—losses of time and money. In an interview, Google IT operations manager Russ White said, “When an employee’s device is not working, the impact goes beyond the cost of replacement. There are the hours employees devote to troubleshooting devices instead of completing projects. Then there’s time your IT team spends on repair and replacement when they could be focusing on more strategic initiatives.”
