A Creative WaaS at ALSO


German broadliner ALSO has introduced the "Creative Design Bundle", a new Workplace-as-a-Service solution that is precisely tailored to the needs of creative users.

"The bundle represents an all-round carefree package with a complete and powerful creative workstation at fixed monthly rates", assures Torben Lehmeke, Head of Consumptional Business at ALSO. "With this offer, photographers and graphic can use powerful and shapely hardware that is always up to date. They will also appreciate the 24/7 support service. With the Creative Design Bundles, we can address a new target group."

Various bundles for graphics, photo and video editing are available, such as a package built around the new "Surface Studio" from Microsoft, which can be rented with different equipment and storage capacities.

The bundle includes Windows 10, Office 365 and the complete Adobe Creative Cloud. All bundles are bookable with a 12-, 24- or 36-month subscription. The reseller has little work to do with the WaaS solutions, since the entire process from rental to invoicing is carried out via ALSO, the distributor promises. A few days after signing the contract with the end customer, the reseller receives the margin for the total term of the WaaS solution as a one-time payment. ALSO plans to support its partners with sales support and a lead generation campaign.
