Now small businesses can rely on Dell Technologies to manage the entire PC lifecycle—all for one predictable price per month.
As a company that got its start in Michael Dell’s dorm room at The University of Texas at Austin, Dell Technologies has a special affinity for entrepreneurs and start-ups that drive innovation and prosperity.
In fact, Dell Technologies is the only technology company that offers dedicated solutions and advisors for small businesses, and today we are announcing Dell PC as a Service (PCaaS)** for small businesses. This offering helps founders spend more time building their business and less time managing IT. The timing for this is perfect, too, as we celebrate Small Business Saturday later this month – this is just one more way Dell Technologies is making small business owners’ lives easier.
We’ve expanded the scope and quality of our capabilities to help small businesses cost-effectively manage all stages of the PC lifecycle—from installation, to ongoing support, to asset return—even if a business has just one or a few PCs. The shift from PC ownership to PCaaS is picking up pace—with 19% of the commercial PC market expected to be using a PCaaS model by 2022.
Dell Technologies On Demand
Dell PCaaS is part of the greater Dell Technologies On Demand (DToD) family of consumption-based and as-a-service delivery models that bring greater choice, flexibility, and assurance to the entire IT ecosystem—from the edge and endpoints, to the core data center, to the cloud.
When Dell first introduced PCaaS in 2017, the PCaaS for Enterprise program was designed for businesses with 300 PCs or more. In August of last year, we introduced PCaaS for Business to mid-sized businesses and now we are extending it to support all small businesses with one to 299 PCs.**
Rethinking PC ownership
Today, businesses of all sizes can confidently equip their workforce with customizable award-winning Dell business laptops and desktops with the right management and security software, and best-in-class Dell services, spanning deployment, support, and asset return.
Small businesses can replace the burdens of PC ownership from capital expenditure, to upgrades and cash flow uncertainties, with a predictable price per seat per month contract from Dell Financial Services (DFS).** DFS makes this solution possible by tying everything into one simple monthly payment, making Dell a true one-stop-shop for PC lifecycle needs. The PCaaS contract with DFS can also help build credit for small businesses. With no upfront costs and a predictable monthly fee, PCaaS can help small businesses better manage their cash flow—the #1 challenge for most small companies.
And, because PCaaS can accelerate the device refresh cycle by up to 5 months, businesses benefit from a workforce empowered with the latest technology – with Dell taking care of recycling the older technology after the lease term is up.

As Dell PCaaS continues to evolve, it adds value at every level for customers including:
- A simplified online shopping experience, initially available in the US1, makes it easy for customers to select, configure, get leasing approval, and manage their options—with full pricing transparency.
- Client Installation Services provide a comprehensive installation service for PCs and peripherals, data migration, software set-up and connecting PCs to the customers’ network.
- A choice of expanded software options to help protect, secure, and manage their PCs and the data on them—from file-based data encryption and advanced threat prevention, to over-the-air unified endpoint management for asset tracking and adaptive endpoint security.
