Our model allows you to stretch payments out over two years. You’ll know exactly what your device budget is each month and never have to worry about surprise repairs or fees.
Today’s employees rely heavily on mobile devices at work. Workforce Mobility has allowed businesses to improve workflows and boost productivity beyond traditional measures.
But businesses can further increase productivity by providing various Mobile devices that only have necessary applications installed and by applying policies to keep the personal use of other applications to a minimum. This is especially true for essential workers like nurses and point of sale workers that process payments. Properly commissioned mobile solutions can improve the quality of service to customers, provide round-the-clock access, increase remote worker flexibility, ease payment processing, and greatly increase productivity across any type of workforce. The companies that can recognize the power of mobile solutions in the workplace and implement the next generation of technology will outpace their competition.
Making sure that all newly provisioned devices are properly tested and set up according to company policy is time-consuming and error-prone. An internal staff could take months to get up to speed and become competent in Mobile Device Management Technology. Relying on a company like CareServ to take care of those details can be a big relief for those who might find themselves in unfamiliar territory. Often, company IT teams are already overwhelmed and simply don’t have the time to take on another task. Luckily, CareServ already has a convenient process in place to set up and stage all mobile devices, apply the mobile device policy required and make sure that every device is immediately ready to be used once it is received and powered on. We can even apply our Anti-Microbial Solution to help keep your work environment germ-free.
A corporate device is either a company-issued and managed device or an employee's own personal device that must be enrolled as part of a Company's Mobile Device Management system, or MDM for short. Company-issued devices can be advantageous in many ways. Organizations can maintain a restrictive device policy without having to worry about invading users' privacy on their personal devices. By providing cell phones, employers can choose a carrier, hardware, and an operating system that best fits the company's needs.
Using employee phones, or BYOD is the simplest and most straightforward device deployment option. Companies can choose to reimburse staff for the use of their phones without being responsible for the phone itself. A BYOD approach can be a great cost-saving, however; it can also be a high-security risk, and an IT team can find it difficult to manage hardware and software updates, and overall device compliance.
CareServ can help you greatly reduce or even eliminate any issues in either case by using our Mobile Device Management platform and applying the best overall security and policy for those devices.
Unsurprisingly, one of the biggest differentiators between leasing mobile devices and buying them is pricing, but depending on the situation, there are different advantages to both. Buying Mobile Devices upfront is less expensive over time and ownership provides tax incentives and depreciation deductions. Larger institutions can often negotiate better pricing with volume discounts or using an RFP process. Using devices until their end of life can also be a cost-saving in the long run. Leasing, on the other hand, eliminates a large capital investment which can greatly impact cash flow and instead creates a more manageable monthly operating expense. Leases can have more flexible terms than loans and be a better option if there is poor credit history. Leasing also has tax-deductible advantages and makes it easier to upgrade obsolete or worn equipment at the end of the term.
