Easy DaaS IT

Up-to-date, secure devices are essential to business productivity. But because small business owners and IT leaders have an array of tasks, device refreshes are often extended well beyond their due dates.

Device as a Service (DaaS) is a multi-year agreement in which procurement, deployment, device management, services and lifecycle management are all handled by you for a low monthly fee.

Why would my clients want to pay a monthly fee for a device versus simply buying one outright?

  1. They deploy only the PCs they need, based on workload
  2. They transition PC procurement from CAPEX to OPEX
  3. They can reduce IT workloads by offloading procurement and management
  4. They don't have to worry about asset disposal which is a key challenge for many businesses

Then what's the difference between DaaS and Leasing?

  • With Daas, the device hardware is only one component of the service. They also have the option to select from various services such as design, configuration, optimization, maintenance and disposal.
  • DaaS bundles the device hardware and services into a single contract, which is offered on a per-seat basis
  • Unlike a typical lease, they have the option at any time to add more hardware and services at any time (scale up), or reduce them (scale down), allowing them to adjust to changing business conditions.

What are the benefits to you, the reseller?

  • You control the customer lifecycle which means a predictable revenue stream
  • Add additional profitability through services
  • Sell based on value, not price
  • Expected selling and upgrade opportunities

  • No Flex Up or Down Options
  • Add additional units via a new DaaS Agreement

13th - End of Term

  • One time Flex-Up or Down option
  • Eligibility based on original # of DaaS units purchased
    • 0-19 units = no option
    • 20+ units = 10% of original quantity

Flex-Up = additional revenue distributed /End User's monthly cost adjusted
Flex-Down = no refund of revenue/End Users monthly cost adjusted

DaaS Pricing & Term Options

The price structure is comprised of the following formula:
Device + Service +Add-Ons (optional) = DaaS (Solution total cost)

Contract's total per month price is contingent upon the desired term:
24 Month - total cost of DaaS Solution financed for a 24 month term
36 Month - total cost of DaaS Solution financed for a 36 month term
