Reduce your IT investment with DaaS

Device as a Service (DaaS) instantly reduces your company’s IT expenditure by combining device leasing and managed services into a cost-effective monthly payment.


By outsourcing device acquisition and lifecycle support to a third-party, it will allow you to optimise your IT investment, lower your cost of ownership and increase your financial flexibility.

 

Benefits of DaaS

DaaS providers offer companies guaranteed lifecycle support. Whether you need a desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet, you will receive fully configured and supported devices.

Many providers offer refresh services, giving you the option to upgrade your devices and software and gain access to the latest technology and support.

 

Here is our list of DaaS benefits:

  • Reduce IT infrastructure costs - DaaS saves your business money by removing the upfront costs of company devices, applications and licenses. You will also have the flexibility to analyse the costs of your software and IT requirements.
  • Pay for what you need - If your employee numbers go down, you can reduce your costs immediately. On the other hand, if you need to expand quickly, even if it is only for a short period, you can pay only for the services you use for a specific timeframe. 
  • Centralise company data - Having individual devices results in the decentralisation of data. Having different machines and a company server results in duplicated files. With DaaS, files and documents can be revised with track changes. 
    By centralising your data, it allows for a deeper level of administrative control and the flexibility to expand your business while keeping your business costs low. 
  • Increased security - DaaS allows you to keep your files securely inside your ecosystem. It encourages file sharing rather than sending documents over email. The right provider will back up your data to corporate level standards and ensure that disaster recovery measures are in place.
    As a result, this reduces non-compliance problems. Having an automated backup system means you will no longer need to back up your work daily or copy data over to the company server.
  • Software management and internal IT cost reduction - It is critical to choose a reputable DaaS provider. It will save you time when updating applications, device rollout and access to rapid service desk support. DaaS can reduce the workload for your internal IT department.
  • Enable remote work - Any device and operating system are compatible with DaaS. Your business can reduce costs by allowing employees to work remotely, which is likely to be a topic for discussion moving forward. It also expands the possibility of recruiting new employees in remote locations and internationally as employees can use their own devices. 
  • Boost productivity - Enabling employees to work remotely increases the likelihood of your employees responding to urgent tasks when they are offsite. Flexible working environments increase job satisfaction levels, which leads to an increase in productivity.

When should you utilise DaaS?

DaaS is the perfect solution if your business requires:

  • One consistent IT system
  • The need to stay up to date with the latest software
  • Secure computing environment
  • Flexible IT infrastructure
  • Constant uptime

DaaS makes it easier than ever to reduce technical debt and replace your on-premises legacy systems and ageing devices that are struggling to perform and keep up with increasing workload demands.
