DEVICE AS A SERVICE

The modern workplace calls for an integrated approach

Device as a Service combines state-of-the-art technology, full lifecycle services and CHG-MERIDIAN's market expertise to enable one simple workspace cost for your business. This flexible solution covers every aspect of the asset's lifecycle, meaning the hardest part of the process for you is choosing the equipment best suited to your needs.

ONE CONTRACT, ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES WITH DEVICE AS A SERVICE

What is Device as a Service (DaaS)?

A Device as a Service (DaaS) solution is an innovative model that allows you to avoid the typical pain points of having major capital expenditure and long waits for an upgrade in assets. This model bundles the cost of the hardware and the cost of the lifecycle services into one single contract in the form of a monthly subscription. DaaS allows you to avoid costly cash purchases and keep your IT portfolio up-to-date with greater cost transparency. 

Our Approach to Device as a Service

In today's world the latest gadget, invention or technological advancement always appears to be on the horizon. Therefore a calculated, flexible solution is vital to ensuring you can stay up-to-date with all the latest technology and trends and ahead of the competition.

We approach the market slightly differently compared to other service providers. As we are not tied to any banks, manufacturers or service providers, our customers can rely on our impartial, unbiased advice when discussing the best practices for both procuring and managing their technology investments. Our independence allows us to be more agile, flexible and really tailor a solution to your specific requirements. We want to get to know and understand your pain points to create a solution designed by you specifically for you. 

DEVICE AS A SERVICE FAQ'S

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER A DEVICE AS A SERVICE SOLUTION OVER A CAPITAL PURCHASE?

The DaaS model provides organisations with not only the hardware but also a complete end-to-end lifecycle services package. In addition to the hardware organisations can benefit from the service elements which can include:

  • A finance plan with 0% interest
  • Non-return allowance
  • Warranty/Break-Fix/Asset Care options
  • Maintenance agreements
  • Delivery and secure collection of assets
  • Service desk
  • Certified data deletion at the end of term
  • Access to Asset and Contract Management software (TESMA®)

HOW WILL A DEVICE AS A SERVICE SOLUTION BENEFIT MY ORGANISATION?

  • Lower TCO (as a residual value position can be taken on the assets this will typically result in paying less than the cash purchase price for the hardware)
  • Effective cost management (spread the cost of your chosen assets over their economic useful life via a single contract thus increasing cost predictability)
  • Up-to-date technology (by having a regular refresh cycle in place you can ensure you’re always using the latest technology)
  • Lower maintenance costs (by ensuring your technology is always up-to-date it is, therefore, less likely to breakdown – resulting in less downtime for you and your users in addition to lower maintenance costs)
  • Secure end of life process (benefit from secure transportation and certified data deletion allowing you to dispose of your tech quickly and effectively)

WHAT DOES A DEVICE AS A SERVICE SOLUTION INCLUDE?

DaaS is a flexible, finance solution that can bundle everything together, or it can be as minimal as you want. We aim to work with our customers to create their ideal solution, so no two DaaS solutions are the same. For example, one solution could include as much as procurement of the assets, the rollout of the assets, a tailored financial plan, service desk support, asset care options, asset management and a full remarketing service complete with data deletion. Whereas another solution could include as little as the rollout of the assets, a tailored financial plan and a remarketing solution including data deletion.
