RE: Re-Issue, Re-Distribute, Re-Purpose, RE-FRESH

Whether you are a school, government, or business, you’ve probably got a lot of computers. From time to time, you probably need to give a computer to a new user. In schools, that happens at the end of every school year. In government and business, that happens with employee turnover. And no matter who you are, devices reach the end of useful life. What to do? REFRESH your devices with BaseChord!

Perfect for Retail, Business, Education or Government

BaseChord, As Easy As 1 – 2 – 3 !

It probably isn’t difficult to imagine the miserable traditional process multiplied by dozens, hundreds or thousands of devices. Frankly, re-imaging isn’t enough. To comply with legal requirements and good practice, a documented disk wipe is essential. The process of erasing a computer – taking it to “bare metal” and back – can be time-consuming and tedious. In use at more than 2000 locations, BaseChord takes care of everything for you: automated, unattended, and fully documented.

1: Connect

BaseChord can connect to devices in two ways: PXE compatible network interface or USB boot drive. The easiest is to just plug in a network cable, but a BaseChord on-the-fly USB boot drive is just as fast.

2: Refresh

The BaseChord Refresh kiosk is plain simple to use. Verify the device and hit “Start.” That’s it! BaseChord will take care of everything from there, wiping the hard drive, reinstalling the OS and key applications.

3: Ready!

When the Refresh process is complete, which can take several hours depending on the drive size, the device is ready for first use by a new user. BaseChord will have documented the refresh results for compliance.

Once you hit Start, the process is automatic – preparing the computer for its next assignment. Unattended and reliable, no more lost time or frustration!
