Improving security and efficiencies


1st March 2019

THE new modern and secure mobile workplace demands a new way of IT procurement to improve user experience, reduce IT cost and improve security - welcome to Device as a Service.

Innovations in technology have driven a major shift in the economy over the last decade as we move from the information age to the experience age. Subscriptions or 'As a Service' offerings have become widespread, both in our personal lives such as entertainment, banking, shopping and even food, and in our work lives with software, printing, infrastructure and workspaces. Businesses looking to improve efficiencies are turning to partners like ACS Office Solutions, so that they can focus on their core business.

The modern workplace requires a modern IT and workplace model. At ACS we provide a partnership for our clients, to be a service provider they can rely on for end-to-end solutions.

Security is of increasing concern on every type of device and in-transition whether on an in-house network or a public cloud. We've all seen what the impact can be when there is a breach or companies' customer data is exposed and no-one in IT wants to be on watch when that happens to their organisation.

We know that our customers want to move from reactively troubleshooting and fixing problems to be able to proactively identify and address issues before they become a problem. In today's world, the expectation is that technology is smart and can determine what is needed to proactively send supplies or service/repair staff.

It's no surprise that costs and the value from technology solutions matter to all departments. Customers are finding value and cost reductions in being able to source their print and computing devices, along with the services they need, with one-stop contracts. Enabling them to have a relationship that can streamline administration on their end but also optimise their budgets.

For these reasons, ACS are introducing to our clients a complete solution that delivers hardware, insightful analytics, proactive management, and lifecycle services. Optimise assets and IT resources with HP Device as a Service.
