As cloud computing and automation is on the increase, many businesses and long-standing organisations will need to assess their operating models and look at making changes to stay ahead of the game. If not, they risk being overtaken by new start-ups who are embracing Device as a Service models and reaping the benefits.

Investing in managed services provides businesses with benefits including flexibility, accessibility and lower costs. If they choose to move to these smart solutions, it will help them reach their goals faster and maintain a competitive edge.

What is Device as a Service?

The term Device as a Service (DaaS) is quite literally devices made available as a service through cloud computing. For example, Device as a Service (DaaS) allows businesses to pay a single monthly subscription fee for multiple devices, rather than buying computers and devices outright. This allows businesses to renew devices when they need them and return old devices that are no longer in use.

Another example is Software as a Service (SaaS). This is a model that is centrally hosted and provides software licences to customers on a subscription basis. Before SaaS, businesses would have to buy the software they needed outright and make manual installations and updates.

What are the benefits of Device as a Service’?

  • Improved mobility

As our society becomes a cloud-focused and mobile centralised environment, it’s important for businesses to keep up. By storing on the cloud and embracing DaaS companies are able to keep things up-to-date 24/7. It also allows for remote work without losing quality.

  • Flexibility

In a world of technology and constant change, it’s crucial that businesses can adapt and provide the best service they can. DaaS models allow businesses to change as and when they need to, personalising their processes and scaling up, or down, to fit the needs of their business.

  • Always up-to-date

No one wants to fall behind or use old technology. With DaaS models, businesses can ensure they always have the best device, the best software and the best processes.

  • Improved cash flow

With DaaS subscription, businesses can avoid upfront costs and only pay for what they use. This means they can balance cash flow with predictable monthly costs.

  • Increased productivity

With the right devices, the right software and the right support, there will naturally be an increase in productivity and morale in the workplace.

  • Full support

With most DaaS models and subscriptions, businesses will receive full support with updates, maintenance and so on.
