HP To Launch ‘PC As A Service’ In India Soon



HP is evaluating to bring ‘PC as a service’ as a new business model. The service, expected to target large enterprises, will help companies save upfront costs on PC infrastructure. Though, the concept is still in the initial stages of evaluation, HP is keen to launch it by the end of this year.

After seeing a good uptake of managed printing services for its printer business, the company wants to offer similar services for its PC business. To begin with, HP sees this service will benefit large organisations who are looking for productivity and cost optimisation and do not want to make huge upfront payments for procuring new devices or worrying about refresh cycles.

“We will probably start with companies with more than 1,000 employees,” said HP India VP and GM (Printing and Personal Systems) Rajiv Srivastava. He added that the company is still working out the final details of the service.”

Enterprises spend about 2 per cent of their revenues on IT, of which 60 per cent is spent on devices like computers. “The percentage is smaller for India, around 1.5 per cent. That is the reason, I believe there is immense potential in the market here,” Srivastava said.

The pay-per-use model, where the user pays on the basis of usage, has been gaining traction globally as companies look to optimise operational costs.
