Try Before You Buy
A laptop rental is a great way to test out the device before making an investment. By testing out the device firsthand, you can determine if the laptop has the capabilities needed to meet the needs of your organization. In doing so, you can ensure that your employees or students will be able to use the laptop on a long-term basis before making a purchase decision.
Event & Trade Show Advantages
Laptop and other device rentals are a must for events and tradeshows.

A VR headset is a device that provides a virtual reality experience for the user. Virtual reality headsets are popularly used for video games but can also be used for simulators and trainers. Many think this device can only be used for gaming-related purposes—but think again! With the integration of technology use in the workplace, there is a push for the use of innovative technology to enhance work environments, employee productivity and team building. Read below for ways to incorporate virtual reality into the workplace.
VR can be used to make the onboarding process more fun and interactive. This will help to improve employees’ positive perspectives on their job and the organization they work for. VR can also provide a virtual experience for what their job may look like. This can help attract more qualified and desirable candidates.
VR can provide a safe space simulation for workers to engage in. For example, VR can help train first responders in helping them to resolve dangerous situations without putting their lives at risk. This technology will allow the workers to evaluate their mistakes and learn to cope with real-life events.
VR allows employees from different departments of the business to collaborate in a virtual space from anywhere. The virtual space further provides a platform for teams to work and complete projects in a quick timeframe while reducing travelling and hardware costs.
VR provides employees with the opportunity to engage in unique immersive experiences while allowing them to build stronger working connections from remote locations.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many employees were shifted to home office settings for health and safety precautions. Although remote work has several productivity benefits, employers are eager to transition their staff back to the office. During this transition, businesses have begun to implement a hybrid work model. Essentially, hybrid workplace models blend remote work with in-office work.
A hybrid workplace model helps to increase productivity while incorporating a greater work-life balance. This model provides opportunities for businesses to save money on rental or property costs, as well as office equipment because of the alternating schedule of remote work and in-office employees.
But let’s take a step back. Before the pandemic, many office spaces were equipped with the time-latest technology for work-related task completion. Fast forward almost two years—present-day—such equipment has been left untouched and collecting dust in these office spaces, because of the mass number of remote workers. With the transition to hybrid models, employees will need to be equipped with office technology to execute their workday. However, many of these devices need to be upgraded as they have become obsolete.
Vernon and DCR are here to provide a seamless solution. Get value for your old office IT equipment with our ITAD and redeployment services. Whether you are supporting employees remotely, in the office or a hybrid model, we can help to enhance returns on old assets. Contact us today to get started.
It is no question technology has become an integral component of many employees’ workdays. Technology is used primarily to stay connected with team members and to complete daily work-related tasks and responsibilities. Equipping your office with the right technology will help to increase and promote productivity. Many employees resort to a workstation or laptop, but iPads have proved to be just as efficient. Why should you choose to go with an iPad over a laptop or workstation?
iPads are known to be very secure compared to a PC. It is very difficult for a virus to take over an iPad as iPadOS puts a wall around each app, which protects software from overwriting one another. iPads also offer several data security features including Find My iPad and Touch ID.
Choosing to rent or buy an iPad is typically cheaper than renting or buying a laptop or workstation. Regarding software and applications, the Apple App Store provides many free apps and software such as Microsoft Office for work-related use. To use Microsoft Office on a laptop or workstation, you will need to purchase the software separately.
iPads offer several versatility options that you will not find with a laptop or workstation. iPads can be used to take photos, have the option to add a keyboard or use without, have the ability for you to stay connected from virtually anywhere with the purchase of a data plan and it is more compact & easier to transport than a laptop or workstation.
iPads have become more popular and common for use in the workplace in the past few years. In addition to the several mentioned benefits, iPads are great for on-the-go working environments. Talk to one of our rental experts today to learn more about this powerful business tool!
