Information for Business from Lenovo
PC AS A SERVICE
Let Lenovo manage your IT hardware and service needs in a single solution with a fixed monthly cost.

Lenovo® PC as a Service (PCaaS) provides a fully-managed PC OpEx consumption model combining hardware and services into a single solution at a fixed monthly cost. A complete end to end IT management service that bridges your IT support gap.

Research indicates the purchase price of a PC represents a fraction of the PC's total cost of ownership (TCO) over time. The bulk of the cost derives from configuration and deployment, IT support services, hardware and software management and maintenance. Lenovo's PCaaS helps to eliminate these burdens by combining hardware and services into a single solution at a fixed monthly cost. It also allows your business to access faster upgrade cycles to the latest Lenovo® ThinkPad® and ThinkCentre® products, powered by Intel® processors which could help to improve user satisfaction.
