How It Works

  • CSSI will work with you to create a standard device configuration
  • CSSI will utilize mobile device management(MDM) tools to ensure your mobile assets stay within the standard
  • New hardware deployment is easy — CSSI will pre-configure each new device so that it is ready to deploy upon receipt
  • CSSI will manage operating system and firmware upgrades, improving your device security
  • Device repair is less of a headache – hardware sent to the repair depot will return to you with correct firmware and device profile, ready for deployment to the end user.
