Founders and owners of SMEs are particularly aware of how important professional IT support is to their own business success. Still, IT is oftentimes neglected. The fact is that there is little time to adequately attend to your IT needs. Specifically, complete bundles like those covering the full span of technology from A to Z are a rarity on the market. Small and medium-sized enterprises find themselves faced with integrated package offerings geared for the most part to larger companies.
IPD NOW is the only provider to offer a complete IT support suite with manufacturer-independent selection at a fixed monthly rate – the works, starting from one product and one work station. The new joint venture between IPD NOW and co-working space operator WorkInn, which already runs four co-working centres in the Ruhr area of Germany, makes it possible to combine two key building blocks in the digital workplace: job location and technology.
Starting now, WorkInn customers can – in addition to work station or office – comfortably enjoy the advantages of a complete IT bundle in the rental model. Your startup bundle includes Office 365, One Drive for Business cloud storage, exchange servers and telephony solutions based on Skype for Business – all for a monthly fee of EUR 14.90. If you need to top up your starter package with the right hardware to match, a business laptop is also available for an additional EUR 49.90 a month for example.
“This joint venture puts us in a position to offer a ‘genuine’ workspace as a service. Co-working – flexible office or work station leasing to suit your needs – is fast becoming the trend in Germany. The same goes for IT resources. The focus here is on using, rather than owning. For employees and co-workers alike, digitalisation means the ability to work professionally and responsively in scalable fashion”, explains Holger Heeren, Business Consultant at IPD NOW. Our IT experts see this concept as having universal application. “We are already in talks with other local co-working operators with a view to offering this joint venture format in other German cities.”
