Dell APEX: A Fit for All Organization Sizes

Why the Dell APEX portfolio of as-a-Service solutions helps accelerate the growth of organizations, no matter their type or size.

No organization starts out as an enterprise-sized business. From Uber to Nike, and even Dell Technologies itself, we all have proud legacies of small and lean teams taking big risks and driving big results. With the Dell APEX portfolio of multicloud and as-a-Service solutions now entering its third year, we want to ensure all organizations, no matter their size, know how they can benefit from the as-a-Service approach Dell APEX brings to technology to help all organizations unleash their innovation.

To do so, we worked with Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) to provide third-party validation of this reality. Through interviews with multiple customers, ranging from small startups to global enterprises, ESG analysts have shared a proof that explains which three of our Dell APEX offers are a fit for your business, no matter your size.

Let’s dive into each of these three offers and explore how real customers, like you, have benefited from them.

As-a-Service – At Your Fingertips

Dell APEX PC-as-a-Service (PCaaS) is a fully customizable subscription that provides businesses with Dell PCs, in addition to procurement, deployment, support and lifecycle management solutions. This can help overcome the cost barrier to executing a tech refresh for PCs while avoiding downtime with rapid deployment and ease of scaling. In their customer interviews, ESG identified the following benefits from this offer:

    • Standardization and governance. Consistent devices across the organization with control and visibility.
    • Predictable costs. Comes with consistent monthly payments with more control and visibility of spend.
    • Sustainable lifecycle. Dell retires your devices in a secure and environmentally conscious manner.
    • Improved support. Global team of experts worldwide to assist when needed.

“Overall, Dell APEX PCaaS is about 13% lower in TCO than before and keeps us from having huge refresh investments hit at the same time.”1

Any-sized Organization, Enterprise-grade Support

Dell APEX Managed Device Service is a managed service subscription designed to shift the burden of day-to-day support and PC management to Dell. This month-to-month, all-inclusive solution allows your IT teams to focus on driving value for your business, instead of “keeping the lights on” with the day-to-day burden of device management. Customers pointed to the following benefits in their conversations with ESG:

    • Flexibility in scale. Adjust the number of subscriptions up or down as needed.
    • Monthly payments. All-inclusive model with no term commitments.
    • Improved security. Dell ensures devices are updated and have the latest in antivirus and encryption capabilities.
    • Expert support. Alleviate the burden of day-to-day support with Dell APEX experts available 24/7.
