Build for the future with DaaS for Windows 10 Pro Devices

The way technology is sold, purchased and consumed is evolving. Gone are the traditional ways of selling and growing revenues, today it is all about flexibility and consumption-based business models. For MSPs to remain competitive, making this transition is business critical.

According to Reportlinker, the Global Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) market is expected to reach $311.5 billion by 2027, up 35.5 percent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) and its many benefits are growing.

DaaS is an innovative consumption model that cost-effectively manages IT hardware devices by bundling them with software, value-added services plus lifecycle management for a predictable monthly fee.

Dicker Data partners and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can access DaaS models via Dicker Data Financial Services (DDFS). The service enables you to deliver customers ultimate flexibility, scalability, plus access to high-functioning devices built with tailored software and infrastructure, and all packaged with the financial predictability of tailored and competitive financial solutions.

Taking this a step further, as a value-added ITC distributor, Dicker Data are proudly enabling partners to leverage DaaS and take customer devices to the next level with Windows 10 Pro. This means your customers can access world-leading business tools and enhance performance, security, design and the experiences required for the modern, remote and distributed workforce. While end-users are empowered with scalable, modern solutions to work smarter and more productively, MSPs and our partners can increase competitive-edge, profitability and up-selling opportunities.

“Dicker Data is helping MSPs accelerate recurring revenue streams, cashflow and profitability margins by leveraging DDFS to build, manage and package solutions in DaaS end-to-end consumption models. As a leading Microsoft distributor, we’re also proud to extend Windows 10 Pro devices to DaaS, helping partners deliver industry leading, tailored and scalable solutions that meet the modern customer needs and their business objectives.”
