HP has launched Device as a Service (DaaS), to give its customers access to its latest PC technology, enhance device management and free up IT time and resources.
With a single contract across both devices and services and no upfront investment, HP DaaS offers predictable annual costs and gives IT greater flexibility to allocate funding to other projects as needed. The program is globally scalable, meaning customers can easily evolve their hardware infrastructure to adapt to changing workforces. It also lets businesses give their worldwide employees access to the latest PCs for greater productivity, collaboration and innovation.
“HP DaaS allows businesses to lean on our technology and expertise to keep their PC infrastructure running while they focus resources on driving their businesses forward,” said Luciana Broggi, general manager, Enterprise Solutions EMEA, HP Inc. “Our new offering removes the complexity around device management and gives customers a simpler way to access and implement needed technology and support.”
HP DaaS allows customers to pay one price per seat for their PCs on a monthly basis over a multi-year period. Within that subscription, they can receive the latest technology and customized services and support from HP, including PC configuration and installation, data migration, onsite support and technology recycling.
Offerings, such as HP DaaS, are resonating with IT buyers as an alternative to what can be a financially challenging and time consuming venture in today’s environment according to industry analyst firm IDC. In a recent study, just over 40 percent of participating IT decision makers revealed that they engaged in or were considering subscribing to a PC as a Service model in the future.
Pricing and Availability
HP’s Device as a Service subscription is currently available via http://www8.hp.com/uk/en/services/daas.html and through select channel partners. The offering is expected to roll out more broadly via HP’s Partner First Program later this year. Pricing will vary based on individual subscriptions.
