HP's new Device-as-a-Service Programme keeps business on the leading edge

Jan 27, 2016 -

HP today announced that it is offering a Device-as-a-Service programme to help enterprises in Malaysia more easily acquire, deploy, manage, and refresh their PC technologies.

Businesses want to move fast, be more efficient, and still provide the best experience to demanding employees. However the time, cost and complexity of procuring and maintaining their PC infrastructure is a challenge.

With HP Device as a Service (DaaS), customers use their PCs like a utility - they pay one price per seat on a monthly basis over a three or four year period. They also get customized services and support from HP, such as PC configuration and installation, onsite break-fix, data migration, proactive support, while having the ability to refresh to the latest HP technology for subsequent contract periods. The devices covered under HP DaaS include commercial desktops, notebook PCs, tablets, and workstations.

Not only does HP DaaS free customers from having to pay the upfront costs of buying new PCs, it incorporates services, support and eventual disposal as part of an overall services agreement. This is different from typical leasing agreements where PC acquisition, setup and maintenance are covered under separate contracts. This means that customers can enjoy more predictable annual costs and greater ease from having to manage just one contract during their entire PC lifecycle.

“Enterprises want to spend more time innovating and engaging with their customers, instead of worrying about their PC infrastructure and costs,” said Kym Lim, Managing Director, HP PPS Sales, Malaysia. “HP DaaS takes care of the customer’s whole PC lifecycle, simplifying IT’s job, giving end-users peace of mind and a better experience with their devices.”
