Mastering Endpoints: Unraveling the World of Endpoint Management Service

As your workforce transforms to encompass dispersed teams using a variety of devices to keep your business moving forward, the management of those devices is compounded, both in complexity and complications. You can’t compromise on the tools that your employees need. That’s why it’s best to understand the differences between Traditional Device Ownership, Traditional Leasing Model, and MCPC Device Lifecycle Management Services.

Hardware Costs

Let’s face it, the upfront cost for a fleet of devices is cost-prohibitive for many organizations. Even if you’re able to handle this kind of financial burden, why would you want to, when you could instead gain more control over your cash flow to invest more in your business?

Leasing removes the burden of large initial costs by providing you with the ability to pay monthly, but you still have to consider the costs of paying your in-house team to deploy, manage, and maintain all of those devices.

Device Lifecycle Management services enable you to achieve greater financial stability and visibility into your hardware costs by moving from capital expenditures to operating with predictable monthly payments that are spread out over the lifetime of the contract. Device Lifecycle Management also eases IT management, with a scalable, subscription-based solution that includes a full slate of end-user devices, managed IT support, and security bundled in one package.


In both traditional ownership and leasing, each user interaction—fulfillment, services, and returns—is a different experience. Who has time to juggle all of that? And how much would that end up costing you in worker hours?

Device Lifecycle Management services enable you to be more strategic by giving you a simple and predictable single source for device procurement, deployment, management, and support. By pulling everything together in one place, you can streamline processes and remove the chaos once and for all.

Services and Support

In the traditional ownership model, not only are your in-house teams, IT and often Finance and HR, responsible for asset tracking, they’re also responsible for contract management from multiple suppliers.

Leasing models often have services as add-ons and if they do include implementation and professional services, they usually don’t include proactive services such as patching, updating, monitoring, maintenance, and help desk support.

MCPC Device Lifecycle Management service model includes expanded services beyond the realm of many in-house IT staffs. Our team of Outcome Engineers work with you to improve user experiences, accelerate productivity, enhance sustainability, and strengthen security.

Lifecycle Management

The traditional ownership model worked well before devices took over the workplace, digitally transforming it from a literal place into a virtual space with devices everywhere.  

Leasing is a little easier with a refresh cycle of every 2 years. The downside is that you have to wait until the end of the leasing contract to increase or decrease the number of devices. If you have devices that aren’t being used, you still have to pay the monthly cost.

Device Lifecycle Management simplifies lifecycle management so you can focus on your business objectives rather than device management. Our service covers every stage of the device lifecycle, and also provides you with the option to store extra devices in the MCPC Technology Logistics Center to provide same day shipment (next day delivery) of fully configured replacement devices. As Outcome Engineers, we help optimize your IT investments at every stage.

Your endpoints are just the starting point.
