In today’s world, we subscribe to almost everything, from music and TV streaming services to makeup subscriptions. These subscription-based models have become the norm, providing convenience and flexibility to consumers.
Subscriptions aren’t merely becoming the norm for B2C products and services but in the B2B world as well. SaaS, (Software as a Service) has become ubiquitous. However, one area that is often overlooked when it comes to subscription-based services is computer leasing.
Strangely, people do not often associate physical products with subscriptions in B2B space. Which is odd, since in the B2C world it is quite commonplace. Consider the case of food delivery subscriptions, which have become quite popular.
Interestingly, computer hardware subscriptions are hugely advantageous to businesses. Firstly, because of the cost-spreading and financial benefits, and secondly, due to all the IT services that are a necessity alongside the hardware itself.
DaaS is a type of IT leasing that incorporates these additional IT services and works on a subscription model.
The DaaS Subscription Model For Computer Leasing
Device as a Service (DaaS) allows businesses to lease devices instead of buying them outright. DaaS providers offer businesses a range of devices and services, including software, security, and maintenance, allowing businesses to focus on their core operations.
So, why is Device as a Service such a great laptop leasing model?
DaaS provides businesses with access to the latest devices without having to invest in them upfront. It allows businesses to stay up-to-date with the latest technology, giving them a competitive edge.
DaaS also offers businesses flexibility. As businesses grow and their needs change, they can upgrade or downgrade their devices accordingly. DaaS providers offer a range of devices with various specifications, ensuring businesses can find the perfect fit for their needs.
DaaS providers take care of all the technical aspects of device management, such as software updates, security, and maintenance. This means that businesses don’t have to worry about the day-to-day management of their devices, allowing them to focus on their core operations.
This type of computer leasing from DaaS providers can give businesses access to a range of software and security options. By bundling these services into the DaaS package, businesses can ensure that their devices are secure and up-to-date. This is particularly important in today’s world, where cyber threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated.
Computer leasing works brilliantly as a subscription service because it provides businesses with a predictable cost structure. With a fixed monthly fee, businesses can easily budget for their device management expenses. This allows businesses to plan ahead and avoid unexpected costs, providing peace of mind.
Leasing computers also provides businesses with tax benefits since it is an OPEX lease. This can provide significant savings for businesses, particularly in the long run.
It is financially advantageous and strategically savvy for business operations in companies to stop seeing computer hardware as a stand-alone product that you purchase once. With tech rapidly advancing, regular upgrades will be par for the course. Computer hardware also comes with so many essential services attached, including technical maintenance, deployment to remote staff, software updates and driver updates, security software considerations, apps and software for each staff member and role, recycling, upgrades, and more. Therefore, a subscription model with a support and service focus will be much more useful to modern businesses.
