New Developments in Mobility

by February 15, 2016 0 comments

HP Inc has announced that it is offering a new Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) programme, for Indian enterprises. With HP Device-as-a-Service, enterprises and organizations use their preferred devices like a utility – they pay one price per seat on a monthly basis over a fixed period. HP in turn takes ownership of the device for its entire lifecycle and does the maintenance, software up gradation, etc thus leaving the customer to focus on their business. They also get customized services and support from HP, such as PC configuration and software installation, on-site break-fix, data migration, proactive support, while having the ability to upgrade to the latest HP commercial desktop, notebook PCs, and tablets for subsequent contract periods.

This is different from typical leasing agreements where PC acquisition, setup and maintenance are covered under separate contracts. This means that organizations can enjoy more predictable annual costs and greater ease from having to manage just one contract during their entire PC lifecycle. HP DaaS also covers secure and responsible disposal of PCs, a final phase in the PC lifecycle that is often overlooked and risk the leak of sensitive information.

“Digital transformation is key for businesses to stay ahead of the curve and deliver best-in-class services to customers. Innovative service model offerings from our partners like HP is helping us to transform our customer experience. Each dealer can better identify the options that match the requirements and aspirations of our customers and address their queries more effectively and provide impeccable experience,” said Rajesh Uppal, Executive Director, IT, Maruti Suzuki India Limited.

AGS Transact Technologies to Start Local ATM Production to Enhance Mobility

Inspired by the government’s ‘Make in India’ scheme and in line with the financial inclusion activities in the country, AGS Transact Technologies, provider of a wide spectrum of payment solutions and technology products for the banking, retail and petroleum sectors, has developed a range ofATMs tailored to the requirements of remote rural areas.

This development has been done in collaboration with Wincor Nixdorf under a manufacturing agreement signed by both companies. These ATMs will be manufactured in India with a sizeable part of the value-creation process being provided by AGS. The manufacturing facility is currently being established in Daman (Union Territory of India).The locally manufactured machines will facilitate a stronger payments infrastructure in smaller towns and cities of the country, thereby making both AGS and Wincor Nixdorf important contributors to the financial inclusion initiative launched by the Indian government in recent times.

Mr. Ravi B Goyal, Chairman and Managing Director of AGS Trans at Techn ologies Limited, said “We are pleased to strengthen our association with Wincor Nixdorf for the manufacturing of a unique ATM tailored for Indian markets. With India lagging far behind in terms of ATMs per million population, the government’s financial inclusion initiative, entry of new players in the banking sector and White Label ATM deployments will drive ATM growth in India. The total ATM installed base in India is projected to double from approx. 2 lakh ATMs to over 4.5 lakh ATMs by 2019.”
