In an effort to help reduce capital expenditure when it comes to purchasing PC equipment, Lenovo is stepping in to offer PC as-a-Service.

It will provide organisations with a fully-managed monthly PC OpEx consumption model combining hardware and services into a fixed monthly fee.

Configuration, deployment, asset management, recovery and product refresh is also covered in the monthly charge.

Companies will have access to a portfolio of products including desktops, laptops and tablet devices.

The service is based on a 36 month life cycle and can be customised by the partner to suit the customer’s requirements and can be provided as fully or partially managed service offering.

Lenovo Asia Pacific services, sales and marketing director, Daniel Fields, said the new offering helps to simplify the procurement discussion with customers and offers predictable total cost of ownership.

"We're addressing the full customer need and we're working together with partners to minimise total cost of ownership and offer a better solution," he said. "It's the first time that Lenovo has offered a fully managed, pay as-you-go service in the market, combining hardware and services in one monthly bill."

Lenovo has about 130 managed partners across A/NZ and about 2000 partners that are managed by its distribution network.

"It provides the value-added service offering for a channel partner to their customers and they can package it as it makes sense for each of their unique customer engagements," Lenovo channel director, Margrith Appleby, said.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
