How it works

With Windows Autopilot, there’s no need to reimage or manually set up new devices before handing them out to your users. Your hardware vendor can ship them, ready to go, straight to your employees.

1. Device registration

The hardware vendor automatically adds new devices to the Windows Autopilot deployment service for you.2

2. Profile creation and assignment

Customize set up and configuration by creating a profile to assign to your organization’s devices.

3. Shipping

Your vendor ships devices to users. Turn the device on, go online, and Windows Autopilot delivers apps and settings.

These brands ship devices using Windows Autopilot. When you purchase from them, your employees receive devices ready to go, just by signing in, with no help from IT.
