Panasonic introduces TOUGHBOOK-as-a-Service: a unique interest free, monthly payment model for rugged devices

BRACKNELL, UK. 16th OCTOBER 2018 Panasonic today announced its new TOUGHBOOK-as-a-Service (TaaS), a unique, interest free, monthly payment model for rugged devices. Businesses can now equip their mobile workforces with any rugged Panasonic TOUGHBOOK notebook, tablet or handheld device without having to worry about large upfront costs in capital expenditure.

TOUGHBOOK-as-a-Service is an end-to-end subscription, powered by European digital services provider, Econocom. It allows companies to pay for their TOUGHBOOK devices monthly, over a three-year period. Uniquely TaaS subscribers pay the same as a cash purchase, even though payments are spread over a longer term – eliminating the need for large upfront costs and allowing organisations to benefit from an OPEX-based solution rather than CAPEX.

TaaS solutions include access to Panasonic TOUGHBOOK devices, delivery, 3-year warranty, helpdesk support, and end-of-life services such as collection, recycling and data wiping. As well as the rugged hardware, customers can choose to add into the monthly payment, on the same 0%[1] interest terms, options for their solution including vehicle mounts, docking stations, specialist software applications and other device accessories, as well as extended and accidental damage warranties.

Customers can also choose to personalise their TaaS subscription with a number of optional extras, including a trade-in programme, which allows businesses to upgrade their technology without losing the value of their existing estate. TaaS also provides the ability to bundle in airtime, MDM and data analytics, for example.

Kevin Jones, Managing Director for the Panasonic Mobile Solution Business in Europe, said: \”Our rugged mobile devices are transforming the productivity of mobile workforces in industries from retail and hospitality, through manufacturing and logistics, to healthcare and emergency services. Our TOUGHBOOK-as-a-service option allows organisations of any size to take advantage of our market-leading technology, with wrap around services to meet their needs, in a more flexible way and without the financial burden of upfront costs.\”

Chris Labrey, Managing Director at Econocom UK & IRL, said: \”Panasonic\-\-s range of rugged devices are extremely popular with mobile workers and employers alike. By powering Panasonic\-\-s TaaS solution we can ensure these devices are now more available and affordable than ever before to a wider range of businesses. Our subscription models are a unique way for businesses to get their technology assets without having to make painful one-off investments, while simultaneously allowing them to update and refresh their assets with an unprecedented level of agility.\”

The Panasonic TaaS solution is available now in the UK and Ireland and will be rolled out across Europe during 2018. For more information on TaaS, please visit: www.TOUGHBOOK.eu/TaaS

[1] TaaS is a 0% finance OPEX solution, including up to 20% soft costs. If the transaction requires more than 20% soft costs / software, the interest rate over 3 years will be higher.
