4 Major Benefits of Integration as a Service
As technology continues to advance rapidly, businesses may find themselves replacing their AV systems every few years to keep up with modern demands—or be stuck with outdated solutions. If only there were a simpler way to update and expand…
There is—the “as-a-service” model applied to technology integration. Integration as a Service works like a subscription plan in which your provider integrates disparate systems and technologies, providing them as a working, on-demand service to your organization. IaaS includes systems monitoring and maintaining the infrastructure for you.
And just like phone plans allow customers to upgrade their smartphones every few years, IaaS is a convenient, simple way to outsource AV management. So rather than pay one time for an integration installation, you’ll pay a monthly subscription for much less of a hassle.
Here’s why Integration as a Service is worthwhile for your business.
Turn Your Conference Rooms into a Service Subscription
Much has been written about the newer generations, especially millennials and GenZ, and their propensity toward less ownership and more paying for things as services. Think Uber and Lyft for transportation, Airbnb for vacation rentals, HelloFresh for food, and Rent the Runway for special occasion clothing. Even automakers like Volvo and Porsche have experimented with automobiles as a service. In addition, Apple has offered iPhone plans that effectively turn smartphone ownership into a subscription of sorts.
What's the attraction to these services? It's mostly about convenience, paying a set price for a (mostly) all-inclusive service, and the flexibility of little or no upfront investment and few long-term commitments. What's the downside? You might pay a little more for all the convenience and work being done for you. But even then, you might argue that few people ever account for the total cost of ownership of cars or what they really spend on food overall.
