MANAGED SERVICES FINANCE: SIGNIFICANT COST SAVINGS FOR BUSINESS.
Steve Sykes, 5 April 2018
Managed Services Finance provides the end-user with a means to control a wide and varied range of hardware, software, and services, yet still having the accountability evident in the term ‘one throat to choke’.
Consider if an end-user’s tablet can’t get online or use a particular software. Who do they call for support?
- Is it the hardware provider?
- Is it the telecommunications provider?
- Is it a software compatibility issue?
- Is it the IT Network Integrator, who manages the network?
Such a scenario can cause of a lot of disruption in the digital age as the equipment, software, and services are more integrated than ever before.
Managed Service Providers have a good story to tell – if they manage all of these components, one phone call to a super responsive solution will find immediate satisfaction. No buck passing, no delays in finding out – just access to someone who knows what is going on and who can help.
Managed Services Finance: This is the future.
First it was digital telephony, then multi-functional digital print devices (print, fax, scan), and now digital devices which has led to a merging of technology as they are all now connected to the network and cloud.
The print industry has always had considerable expertise when packaging a solution with financial engineering at its core. Managed Services Finance simply reflects this evolution, in that they have the ability to cater for more than just print or more than just network. It depends on where you are coming from – as either an end-user, or as someone traditionally offering a print or a network based solution.
The combination is represented in Managed Services Finance that provides clarity and visibility in relation to all hardware, software, and services provided, with the ability to pay for all of it as if it were a service. The result: one throat to choke and significant cost savings.
These days, it is called an “as a Service” offer, or as we like to say at SER, it is “Finance as a Service”.
