The Business Benefits of Lenovo DaaS
The three-year itch
Industry experts agree that a three-year refresh cycle for computing hardware is the optimal length of time to address:
- Energy efficiency
- Updated security
- Workforce productivity
Research conducted by Intel Corporation indicates that small business workers lose more than one week of work per year due to outdated PCs — and this doesn’t even take into account the drain on employee morale.
If that’s not bad enough, those same businesses spend 30% more to repair PCs that are four years or older compared to newer PCs. In many cases, it’s more expensive to repair old computers than to buy new ones.
Put new devices in employee hands. Keep money in the bank.
Cash flow management isn’t easy in the best of times, so when it’s time to tighten expenditures, IT budgets are usually the first to get cut. Lenovo® Device as a Service (DaaS) solutions solve this issue, allowing organizations to shift large IT budget allocations to more manageable payments over a planned timeframe while also lowering the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
The result? Employees get updated, best-in-class devices to do their jobs, and you keep money in the bank.
Subscription models are here to stay. DaaS is the future.
Subscription services are nothing new. The PC and smart device industries are catching on to the benefits of subscription-based models used by the entertainment sector for years.
Unlike simple hardware leasing, though, DaaS offers a holistic soup-to-nuts approach to IT device lifecycle management that preserves flexibility and scalability.
A recent IDC survey found that 40.2% of respondents have engaged or are planning to engage in DaaS in the next 12 months to address their needs.
Lenovo DaaS from Insight includes:
- Equipment: Hardware and maintenance
- Configuration: Custom image, BIOS, image, management tools and encryption
- Deployment: Installation, data migration, removal of old hardware
- Premier support: On-site HW/SW support, technical account management and phone support
- Fleet flexibility: Options for limited scalability over contract term
- Hardware and software monitoring: Monitoring, remote management, patches and on-site options
- Additional add-ons: Web monitoring, email monitoring, managed antivirus and Office 365®
- Asset recovery: Removal of old assets and secure data erasure
Remove the burden for your IT team so they can focus time, attention and resources on strategic initiatives that drive business growth and development.
DaaS does more with IT dollars.
All Lenovo DaaS solutions are fully customizable and backed by Lenovo Financial Services, so businesses can access flexible financing options to get all the features they need for an affordable — and predictable — monthly fee.
Myth: DaaS is expensive.
In a recent study by IDC, the majority of businesses reported saving costs with DaaS. 75% said they spent less or about the same.
Choose from three service levels for a comprehensive solution that includes all the features you need and only the features you want:
Small Business - Simplify. Select industry-leading hardware, plus Premier Support with simple monthly payments.
Mid-Market - Accelerate. Streamline configuration and deployment and deliver enhanced user productivity quickly.
Enterprise - Transform. Revolutionize your IT organization with expert services and smarter automation.
The circular economy
DaaS doesn’t just make economic sense — it makes environmental sense. By replacing a linear economic model (produce, consume, destroy) with a circular economic model (produce, consume, return, refurbish and reuse), Lenovo DaaS extracts more value from assets while minimizing waste. It’s good for business and good for the planet.
Lenovo DaaS from Insight takes your IT dollars and makes them go further with a comprehensive solution to meet your entire device lifecycle management needs. Equip your employees with secure, reliable, modern devices and comprehensive support services from Lenovo.
