Microsoft Surface Deployment

Cantium’s hands-off, end-to-end device provisioning solution.

Deploying Microsoft Surface in partnership with Cantium will look different at every organisation we work with.

Cantium has designed an end-to-end device provisioning solution, delivered as a service that enables the end user to order their new device and have it arrive on their doorstep within a matter of days.

However, we understand that your organisation may be able to handle aspects of this process in-house. We’ve also seen that some organisations are more prepared to roll out Surface devices than others.

Therefore, we recommend that Cantium’s engagement starts with an assessment of the technical debt within your infrastructure. If your infrastructure lacks comprehensive cloud integration, it can result in challenges with application compatibility and deployment, as well as Virtual Private Network (VPN), Wi-Fi, and application certificates.

The Device Distribution Process

Cantium has designed the Microsoft Surface device distribution process from end-to-end with a focus on customer experience.

Device ordering seamlessly integrates with our IT Service Management (ITSM) tool, ServiceNow, offering users a self-service model to order and track devices from start to finish.

Through our online portal, users can easily place orders, monitor delivery status, and handle any exceptions, such as failed delivery or damaged devices upon arrival.

Furthermore, our ITSM tool tracks user success with the new device, and prompts users to return their old devices for secure disposal after a successful introduction period, ensuring a smooth transition. This self-guided approach keeps users engaged and informed throughout the process, enhancing the overall end-user experience.

Cantium also deploys Early Life Support (ELS) as standard throughout the process to manage the end user’s experience and expectations closely, gathering their feedback and identifying potential problem areas at every stage.

In our experience, this process management and evaluation exercise has been pivotal to projects’ success, ensuring that the entire process was tracked and understood while assessing each touchpoint for possible problems in the user and technical experience.

Cantium's seamless collaboration with our team and proactive approach have garnered overwhelmingly positive feedback. We are confident that these new devices will deliver excellent value for money in the future.

Cantium Business Solutions is Delivering 9,000 Microsoft Surface Devices for Kent County Council

KCC has an ageing estate of unreliable laptop devices, which are also out of warranty. When the Council identified that they wanted to align their hardware and technology with the Microsoft suite of products and services, it was an easy choice to utilise Microsoft Surface devices to reduce their cost base while increasing device performance.

Cantium stepped in to design a hands-off, end-to-end device provisioning solution, delivered as a service that enables the end user to order their new device and have it arrive on their doorstep within a matter of days.
