Getting the latest mobile devices into the hands of your employees has never been more important. So, what if you could streamline and minimize the financial impact of the process?
For enterprise organizations, keeping your workforce connected through telecom services and a fleet of devices is pivotal. Today’s enterprise office is a hybrid environment that has embraced mobile devices to enable greater levels of remote access and collaboration.
The latest technology means organizations can empower employees to work how they want, where they want – with increased productivity outcomes. And studies show that businesses experience a 67% increase in productivity when offering more flexible digital tools to employees.
Equipping end-users with the latest devices lets you:
Own competitive technology
Standardize end-user devices
Worldwide IT spending on devices will increase by 3.3% in 2022. The stressors of the pandemic have encouraged businesses to accelerate efforts to support a remote workforce. And even for businesses planning a transition back to the office or a hybrid environment, you still need the latest technology.
How does the latest technology help employees work better and strengthen your business?
Devices your employees use every day are vital for getting things done. Equipping end-users with the best available technology, or simply ensuring the devices they’re using aren’t out-of-date, will help end-users be more productive.
With greater access to the mobile devices your enterprise needs, you’ll have the ability to remain agile in response to changing ways of working. Whether employees are away from the office more, or their requirements become more sophisticated – using the latest devices means you remain prepared.
By 2030, 70% of your workforce will be Millennials or Gen Z. And offering a clunky laptop or brick-like mobile phone to even the least tech-savvy employee will cause issues. By giving end-users the best devices, you optimize the way they work, interact, and get things done for your business.
If the above appeals to your business goals, the next step is to get the latest devices into your business quickly and easily.
A managed mobility service is a great method of optimizing mobile device management in your enterprise. And its financial flexibility can help you get devices into the hands of your employees faster. Here’s how.
An MMS provider can manage large-scale device deployments for you.
Managed mobility services (MMS) support your business with a variety of mobility and device needs. MMS providers can manage large-scale device deployments for you, as well as other optional holistic requirements like end-user support, security, and compliance.
MMS is an end-to-end service. Your MMS partner can work on your behalf to source, negotiate, and deploy the most competitive mobility deals for you; can offer a 24/7 help desk to support your end-users, and eventually manage device recycling, repair, or resale. Put simply, MMS is an extensive package that supports and optimizes your entire enterprise mobile environment.
To get the latest devices quickly deployed in your organization, you’ll want to take advantage of MMS’s financial flexibility.

An MMS provider can help you spread out the cash flow impact of purchasing new devices.
MMS’s greatest benefit is that it improves the visibility of your financial spend. When managing a vast network of mobile devices, understanding the mobility lifecycle can be a challenge. Often, the sourcing, acquiring, and deployment stage has the greatest financial impact. If you don’t have visibility of this spending, costs can quickly creep up. Your MMS provider will audit, report, monitor, and optimize these costs for you – so you never lose sight of mobile spend or spend more than you need.
And the secret weapon? An MMS provider can help you spread out the cash flow impact of purchasing new devices. This lets your enterprise own and deploy devices of your choice, exactly when you need them. This is achieved through ‘DaaS’.

You own the devices
Sourcing & distribution is managed for you
Costs are spread out over time
The cost of DaaS is managed as operating expenses instead of capital expenses. You stay debt-free by repaying the cost of purchase as part of your MMS service change. It’s a win-win.
Device as a Service lets you acquire devices without worry or stress of immediate payments. Your MMS provider sources and purchases the devices, and quickly deploys them for your organization when you need it. The costs are combined into monthly payments as part of a managed mobility service. This is a single monthly service fee.
Best of all, the costs of DaaS are managed as operating expenses instead of capital expenses. You stay debt-free when repaying the cost of purchase through a service charge. There’s no debt hanging over your company’s head, and you can instantly access any number of devices you need. This gives you complete control and choice of devices used within your organization. And minimizes the impact on your cash flow by spreading out the cost.
All this, with the addition of dedicated 24/7 expert tech support, is all supplemented by your MMS provider.
Looking for more information about Device as a Service? Our blog explores what it is and its cost benefits.
There are many ways enterprises can manage their devices. Traditionally, companies spend millions of dollars to buy, upgrade, or repair their fleet of devices. This cost slowly rises without many of them even realizing it.
As technology advances and employee needs continue to change, it’s easy to spend more year on year. However, there’s no way of consistently monitoring and managing these costs – they’re seen as non-negotiable. How else can enterprise workforces remain productive without the devices they need?
The costs of devices can impact yearly budgets, or risk businesses having to take out hefty loans. Understandably, it’s something we all want to avoid. The latest 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Managed Mobility Services, Global report identified that getting devices into the hands of end-users quickly is a priority for enterprises. And demand for effective sourcing and logistics is as important as cost-efficiency.
Many businesses are unaware of the unique benefits of DaaS as part of MMS, and how it could quickly become an industry best practice to overcome these challenges. Here’s why.
Making hardware payments more manageable improves access to the latest technology. When the latest smartphone is readily available, you can remain competitive regardless of your finances.
Global enterprises might not always have an equal playing field country-to-country. Device as a Service overcomes the limitations of device financing in countries you might not have local knowledge in. Your MMS provider can manage it for you, no matter where in the world.
With Device as a Service, the devices aren’t on lease or under the thumb of a loan. From the very beginning, your business already owns the devices, reducing stress and worry.
You often get support when buying devices outright, but how long does it last? Many contracts have additional support costs, especially in large enterprises. With Device as a Service through an MMS provider, you are given unrivalled 24/7/365 support as part of your service.
At Cass, we own the bank. We are an MMS provider that has our own bank. This means we have the flexibility to offer a unique solution for your hardware needs. Giving you greater regulation security and trust.
Today’s hybrid workforce and enterprise environment require more control than ever. 74% of employees now want the ability to work anywhere, at any time, so you can’t afford to ignore the benefits of using the latest, flexible mobile technology.
However, the financial challenge of managing this long-term can be a burden on your budget. According to PWC, only 60% of employees say they’re satisfied with the mobile options available to them at work. Many of them don’t feel they have input before leaders choose the devices they use to work. Yet, a third of employees are motivated to use technology for better teamwork and efficiency. Enterprises need a method of supplying the right devices that employees need and want, at the right time. This enables better productivity and helps equip your organization for the future.
