Hewlett-Packard has announced that it is offering a Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) program in Australia and selected countries across the Asia Pacific and Japan region.

Announced at the HP PPS conference in Singapore, HP DaaS APJ is designed to enable customers to use their PCs like a utility - they pay one price per seat on a monthly basis over a three or four year period.

They also get customised services and support from HP, such as PC configuration and installation, onsite break-fix, data migration, proactive support, with the ability to upgrade to the latest HP commercial desktop, notebook PCs, and tablets for subsequent contract periods.

“CIOs are stressed because they have to deliver more while reducing costs,” says Dennis Mark, Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Segment and Managed Services, Printing & Personal Systems, HP Asia Pacific and Japan.

“Enterprises want to spend more time innovating and engaging with their customers, instead of worrying about their PC infrastructure and costs

“HP APJ DaaS takes care of the customer’s whole PC lifecycle, simplifying IT’s job, giving end-users peace of mind and a better experience with their devices.”

According to HP, businesses want to move fast, be more efficient, and still provide the best experience to demanding employees. However the time, cost and complexity of procuring and maintaining their PC infrastructure is a challenge.

HP says that HP APJ DaaS frees customers from having to pay the upfront costs of buying new PCs, it incorporates services, support and eventual disposal as part of an overall services agreement.

This is different from typical leasing agreements where PC acquisition, setup and maintenance are covered under separate contracts.

HP APJ DaaS is currently available in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. It will be introduced in India by end-October.
