What is Subscription Based Computing?
Simply put it is the ability to purchase your chosen hardware technology together with your software applications and the appropriate levels of maintenance and support all for a monthly per user charge, very similar in many respects to how most people purchase their mobile phones.
Subscription based computing is an emerging model that can be tailored to each organisations individual needs, incorporating PC’s , notebooks, tablets and printers together with software applications such as Microsoft Office 365 and any combination of services including configuration, asset management, onsite support and ultimately product recycling.
IT In Demand
The way we all do business is changing, along with the expectations of how our IT is handled.
Keep devices secure and avoid any vulnerabilities by consistently providing current, in-demand devices with regular refreshes and important updates.
Control budget costs
Costs can be easily predicted with precise management of the solution - upfront costs with no hidden fees mean a total cost of ownership is visible.
Keep devices and services consistent across all your departments & locations with regular updates to help things run smoothly for all employees.
How can Subscription Based Computing help your organisation?
Subscription based computing via a monthly subscription can provide significant financial benefits to companies as they are able to move from large Capital Expenditure (Capex) costs to smaller regular Operating Expenditure (Opex) costs which has a major benefit to company cashflow, and permits better planning and forecasting of IT associated costs.
It also gives organisations the ability to outsource the procurement and lifecycle management of end user computing devices, together with the software applications and support services required on a per user basis.
Easily scale up IT resources as workloads demand, whilst managing and maintaining the devices is outsourced freeing up your own IT resources to focus on strategic business objectives rather than day to day management of the PC estate.
Another advantage would be enhanced end user experience from more regular product upgrades, providing users with the latest technology delivering enhanced productivity, fewer technical outages and a more secure PC environment.
72% of Enterprise businesses are now adopting a Subscription based solution to ensure their IT infrastructure is kept at the cutting edge of technological possibilities.*
