Zoom Launches Hardware as a Service Program
Video-enabled conference rooms and cloud phone products are among the most powerful business tools available, especially with businesses needing exceptional resilience and agility more than ever. Conference rooms with video conferencing technology provide professional, high-quality face-to-face communication from the comfort of the office, while cloud phone products allow employees to work from anywhere they have a connection, reducing friction in internal and external communication and driving employee productivity. However, the prohibitive cost of top-tier hardware solutions and the significant investment required to scale these hardware solutions often prevents companies from providing employees with effective hardware solutions.
Zoom’s new Hardware as a Service (HaaS) program provides access to Zoom Phone and Zoom Rooms hardware solutions with a budget-friendly subscription service, giving organizations the ability to outfit their employees with leading hardware solutions and affordably scale these solutions at a fixed monthly price. Here are some of the benefits of Zoom’s HaaS program:
Low upfront costs and predictable budgets
Many companies can’t afford to equip their employees with effective hardware solutions due to large upfront costs and a significant impact on their budget. With Zoom HaaS, organizations can equip themselves with hardware solutions from leading vendors like DTEN, Neat, Poly, and Yealink without the large initial investment, freeing up their budget for important projects and making hardware solutions more accessible for businesses of all sizes.
Purchasing hardware outright can be a great solution, but it doesn’t give organizations the flexibility they need to scale up or down. Scaling up with purchased hardware requires a significant investment while purchased devices often must be used for long periods of time to see a material return on the initial investment. Zoom HaaS allows businesses to more easily scale up or down with high-quality devices designed for Zoom Phone and Zoom Rooms, allowing them to maximize cost efficiency and manage their hardware solutions to fit their needs and budget.
Fully supported by Zoom
All Zoom HaaS solutions are fully supported through Zoom, allowing customers to maintain a high level of availability. IT professionals also have the option to add professional and managed services to their subscription, providing organizations with more hassle-free installation services and enhanced end-to-end management from Zoom’s professional services teams.
