Streamline your upgrade cycles with Dell PC as a Service for Small Businesses

End-user hardware can be a headache for MSPs, but PC-as-a-Service can help address these challenges

End-user computing hardware can sometimes be a problem for small-business MSPs; budget-conscious clients will often sweat their assets beyond the point where they should have upgraded, and five-year-old laptops running out-of-date software are frequently the source of many unnecessary support requests for IT contractors. Trying to convince clients to upgrade can also be challenging, as decision-makers struggle to justify the CapEx costs associated with a device refresh. Moreover, they may not be considering the costs of the services needed to maintain client systems from receipt to retirement – but it is these, rather than the hardware purchase, that are the main client IT cost drivers over time. 

In this webinar, presented in association with the Dell Expert Network for small-business IT contractors and MSPs, we look at how Dell PC as a Service can help address these challenges, allowing MSPs to streamline their clients’ device costs by bundling hardware, software and services procurement into a single per-seat monthly subscription that’s stable, predictable and OpEx-based. Dell’s PC as a Service offering also ensures that client devices are refreshed on a regular basis, so MSPs’ clients will always have the most up-to-date devices that they need to achieve their goals - which means they’ll have simpler ongoing support needs, and no disposal costs.
