BYOD is not the way to go. If the devices are for company use it should be provided and supported by the company. Employees should be using company equipment for work related tasks not for personal computing. If your the "IT Dept Head" isn't it your responsibity to support company computers? If it's outside of your skill set and you have an unwillingness to learn. Sounds like you were thrown into the position and its not a position you want.Laptop hardware issues are somewhat of a refined skill. Sometimes it's best to purchase new/off lease units with an extended hardware warranty.
It is my responsibility, ultimately; perhaps you missed the part where I said I do not have time to fix hardware issues on their equipment which is why I am looking to "farm out" or contract with an OEM like Dell or Lenovo...if BYOD is not the way to go. No need to make those assumptions; I honestly have other issues that are frankly more important which is why I am looking for an alternative...just looking for a successful strategy.
The other key fact I left out is the end users are in 20+ different locations.
Thanks for the response.
