What is Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) for Managed Mobility Services?

30 June 2022 | Posted by Cass Information Systems, Inc.

Today's office isn't static. It's a fully mobile, hybrid environment that empowers employees to be as productive as possible. Managed Mobility Services (MMS) are vital in supporting organizations to help their employees work how they want, where they want.

A mobile workforce sounds great – they’re incredibly flexible, and technically never have to be ‘away’ from the office. But to achieve this, organizations need to invest in the latest cutting-edge technology and deploy it to potentially hundreds, if not thousands, of end users. A truly smart mobile ecosystem doesn’t come cheap, but for many businesses today, it’s a necessity.

Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) overcomes many of the roadblocks that might be overwhelming for organizations looking to take their processes mobile.

What is Device-as-a-Service (DaaS)?

Device-as-a-Services enable businesses to build their mobile ecosystem and put the latest technology straight into the hands of their employees.

It connects your workforce with the latest smart devices and bypasses that initial, expensive, investment. The solution enables you to get cutting-edge technology to your workforce without the need for an immediate upfront payment. Instead, the cost of the devices is simply added to the monthly managed service charges.

This means you get to own your devices as though you had paid for them all in one go while keeping costs manageable. This makes it an incredibly cost-effective method of keeping your remote workforce connected. Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) is a one-step solution that removes the stress, hassle, and immediate financial obligations from enterprise mobility management, giving you peace of mind at the same time.

The Cost Benefits of Device-as-a-Service (DaaS)

  • Dramatically improves cash flow
  • Reduces the impact on the balance sheet
  • Reduce upfront and immediate costs
  • No debt 

Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) ease many of the financial burdens that come with organizations trying to outfit their teams with the latest technology. There are several cost benefits to using Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) to build out your mobile ecosystem. For example, device-as-a-Service dramatically improves cash flow by reducing the impact of loans and leases on your balance sheet. You have less money leaving the business in one go when you reduce your immediate costs.

Reducing upfront costs is one of the greatest benefits afforded to organizations. The latest technology doesn’t come cheap, and those costs are a big expense for enterprises.

The truth is that it’s necessary to use technology to compete, but organizations shouldn’t be locked out of using that technology by cost. You can minimize the impact to your cash flow by spreading the cost of your devices across monthly payments instead, combining monthly hardware payments with Managed Mobility Services (MMS).

By repaying the costs as part of your service charge, and not as a loan, there’s no debt hanging over your company. You’re given total control over your mobile devices.

Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Managed Mobility Services

When operating a vast mobile workforce, understanding the mobility lifecycle is vital to success. However, the beginning of that cycle is often prohibitive for many companies. Sourcing, acquiring, and deploying thousands of cutting-edge devices to remote end-users is expensive, and many organizations end up with a deal that doesn’t work for them.

It’s for this reason that it's such a natural fit with managed mobility services and why it’s perfect for organizations looking to transform and build their mobile ecosystem. Organizations are presented with a single-step solution to connect their workforce in a time where remote work is the new normal, and the office space has become hybridized.
