A variety of goods and consumer products have become available ‘as a service’ in recent years, from music streaming to mobile devices. Circle IT have rolled out our own ‘as a service’ procurement model, with Dell EMC at the forefront. Built with the end-user’s convenience in mind PC as a Service (PCaaS) simplifies PC lifecycle management by combining hardware, software, lifecycle services and financing into one all-encompassing solution – providing a single, predictable price per seat per month.
This new model differs from traditional leasing in numerous key ways that make them beneficial to you, the consumer.
The IDC conducted a global study of 3500+ IT leaders and found that companies of all sizes are considering an ‘as a service’ procurement model to reduce costs, shorten refresh cycles and provide their employees with better equipment. They have already found a positive reception to ‘PC as a service’, finding that of those who have adopted the model, 33.3% of those surveyed said they were able to better match system performance with user’s needs whilst 29% said they were able to source lower-cost hardware. The proven benefits of the model suggest that all businesses should be considering whether they would benefit from a procurement model offering greater flexibility to changing business needs, cost predictability and support and maintenance services.
By partnering with Circle IT and Dell EMC, you can reduce PC lifecycle management and service costs by up to 25%.
