Device as a Service (DaaS): A Flexible Approach to Procure and Manage Field Service Mobility Hardware and Software

Retriever Communications, the leader in service lifecycle management and mobility solutions, ​and Gamma Solutions, leaders in enterprise mobility equipment, announced a collaborative approach to shift the burden of supporting devices from your IT team to external specialists.

Introducing Device as a Service.

A Device as a Service (DaaS) solution covers the supply of devices and their management, including leading-edge Field Service Asset Management software, for a monthly per-device investment.

This includes mobility equipment (mobile, accessories), procurement, setup and installation, support, accidental damage insurance, monitoring and optimisation and lifecycle management.

Without devices or robust software that just does the job, your team can’t work ​effectively. DaaS makes sure they do. Moving to DaaS alleviates the burden of managing devices and software so that Mobile Field Service agents can do their work ​seamlessly and without interruption. New starters will be set up and ready to go from day one with rapid setup and installation. Device uniformity means that users can easily move from one device to the other when a breakdown occurs or when a more capable (e.g., rugged) device is required.

Device alignment will reduce your overall hardware spend. Your IT team will finally be freed up from procuring and installing devices to focus on higher priority projects. Your finance team does not have to juggle capital to pay large up-front costs for IT hardware, software, and implementation costs.

Support and lifecycle management makes it easy to get the help you need to fix, replace, or dispose of any device. Ongoing analytics provide the insights needed to align devices to workloads, even as they change.

Your Field Services teams will be more productive, and your entire business will benefit from DaaS.
