It started with print and software, now it’s here for your client devices too…
As times change, the world has shifted to an “As a Service” model in many areas of technology procurement. For example, print is now most commonly procured through a Managed Service, with usage and break/fix built into one predictable, recurring cost and software has moved to an ever-more subscription-based model where you can break down parts of a product suite to consume only what you actually are using.
Now, the time has come to incorporate this model into your client devices. This idea isn’t new, it’s tried and tested with our cars and phones, and it has actually been launched for clients previously under different banners. However, now it comes with a wraparound software piece that makes it something that must be considered in any client purchasing decision.
In today’s market, business faces key challenges around the provision of client devices, including:
Significant upfront financial investment
Efficient device provisioning
Management of a multi-vendor estate
Adherence to regulations concerning disposal, data destruction etc.
