Device as a Service (DaaS)
Red8s DaaS can simplify device lifecycle management to harmonize your IT ecosystem
With Device as a Service (DaaS) you can be Ready for Cost Effective and Secure Device Management
Managing the asset lifecycle of devices, including employees’ personal devices, is a challenge that Device as a Service (DaaS) can meet. The modern enterprise is built upon a vast ecosystem of devices/hardware such as laptops, mobile devices, desktops, and so on. This device ecosystem includes both personal and corporate device assets. These assets underpin productivity, remote working, and can help optimize IT resource use. Lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) whilst optimizing IT investment in devices throughout the lifecycle, is driving new IT delivery models. DaaS provides a way to cost-effectively implement IT asset management for a diverse array of devices. By using Device as a Service your enterprise can ensure that the device ecosystem is used optimally, whilst maintaining security across all endpoints.
The Benefits of Device as a Service
Leveraging Red8 to manage the lifecycle of your devices allows you to:
Maintaining IT hardware that is up-to-date and reliable is costly, and with device as a service, can be a thing of the past. Red8’s DaaS eliminates major capital investment on business devices. We offer DaaS to replace that high up-front investment with an on-demand model for devices and associated services like lifecycle management. This investment cost replacement benefit offers businesses instead, a predictable monthly payment.
Leveraging technology leads to competitive edge. Mobile devices and laptops help facilitate the expectations of modern employees and remote working. But technology changes at a rapid speed. DaaS gives an enterprise freedom from obsolete technology. Red8 DaaS can even provide an option to offer ‘buyback credit’ for existing IT devices and hardware.
Free up IT Resources
Technology improves productivity for employees and offers a way to gain competitive edge. However, the maintenance and strategic planning around technology requires intensive support from in-house IT teams. IT support is under increasing pressure to deliver core business tech support. Red8’s DaaS acts like an extension of your team to take the strain and deliver world-class technology. In-house IT teams can focus on core strategic initiatives to take your company forward.
Old hardware and devices can lead to security issues. Out of date operating systems and software contain security vulnerabilities that are exploited by cybercriminals. This leads to reduced productivity, stolen data and login credentials, and costly fixes or replacements. Using a DaaS model, unreliable, out-of-date, and old device models are seamlessly replaced, improving overall device reliability and security.
