There are many different, yet effective computer hardware leasing solutions available on the market, each with its own advantages for companies.

They are both very flexible and affordable ways to source hardware with a simple, straightforward process. These types of hardware leases enable smaller businesses to spread the cost of their computer equipment into easy monthly payments.

However, if a company is looking to deploy a large number of devices out to a widespread team, then Devices for Teams will definitely be their best option.


What is Devices For Teams?

Devices For Teams is a DaaS (Device as a Service) style leasing solution with a host of extra advantages, including ease of mass deployment to staff.

While all leases are usually subscription-based, the DaaS model will be more familiar to companies who have utilised ‘as a Service’ solutions before.

Much like with SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), or IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), a DaaS subscription places a higher emphasis on service.

In addition to receiving the product, which in this case is the computer hardware, and paying monthly, there is also usually the big advantages of automatic upgrades to the latest tech and a lot of support in-built into these solutions.

D4T daas by HardSoft For companies using DaaS to source their devices, they never have to worry about obsoletion in their tech and always have the best equipment to boost productivity thanks to auto upgrades.

With the extra support in a DaaS package, a business has far less to worry about when it comes to installation, ongoing maintenance, and deployment.

D4T (Devices For Teams) is a state-of-the-art DaaS solution that comes with many additional benefits compared to other DaaS packages.

D4T not only provides automatic upgrades to the most advanced technology but unlike other packages it:

  • Allows companies to swap, or even return devices without financial penalty.

  • It’s efficient to get started, thanks to no third-party finance companies.

  • Enables you to scale the lease-up or down as needed as your staff numbers change.

  • Allows companies to mix and match devices for their teams from all the biggest manufacturers, including Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, Lenovo, HP, and Dell.

It’s just one of the reasons that Devices for Teams is the best option on the market for deploying hardware, but there are many more reasons that we make deployment so efficient and simple.


What is Deployment?

This is the process of acquiring and distributing your new computer hardware to your staff.

D4T is the best option for deployment because it includes:

  • Full installation

  • Logistics

  • Rapid shipment to staff both in the office and at their homes for those who work from home or do hybrid working

  • Zero-touch deployment

  • Full pre-configuration


What is Pre-configuration?

There’s no faff and downtime lost to a confusing setup. With D4T, devices can be fully manually installed for you but also, but they are pre-configured with each individual staff member’s accounts, software, and apps. This boosts staff productivity because all devices are out-of-the-box-ready-to-go.

Pre-configuration can even be done with a zero-touch approach while devices are en route to your workers. With D4T your devices can be ordered, registered, pre-configured and deployed to your desired destination remotely. They can even be added to your company MDM.

D4T can do this with systems like Apple Business Manager for Apple hardware, Microsoft Autopilot for PC, and Samsung Knox for Samsung devices. These systems make deployment easy, efficient, and effective even when bulk ordering large numbers of different computer equipment for your teams.

Devices For Teams was designed to work with these systems for the fastest and best deployment possible of any DaaS solution. With D4T the whole device life cycle is taken care of. There is help for recycling and taking old devices away when you upgrade, so there is no superfluous hardware taking up space.
