Simply NUC was started to act as a bridge between Intel and end users. Since Intel only sells the barebone NUC kits to distributors, someone needs to act as the OEM in order for end purchasers to buy fully assembled systems, if they don’t want to build them on their own. There can be a lot of frustrations that come from trying to build up a barebone system for most people and business. They prefer to buy them ready to plug in and start using and that is what Simply NUC does. They also provide businesses with their own custom NUC clients that come pre configured with all of their software and settings. This can save massive amounts of deployment time for the end user.
