You know the benefits of Desktop as a Service (DaaS); savings, advanced security, mobility, flexibility, the list goes on – but now you need to convince management that this is the project they must say yes too.

Creating the perfect mix of IT and sales is tough, which is why we’ve picked out the key points you need to get your DaaS project over the line.


Higher management are primarily concerned with cost and revenue, which is what makes DaaS such a great sell. Generally, DaaS is cheaper than traditional desktop infrastructure. There is reliability and consistency with DaaS, thanks to monthly billing, meaning no IT surprises.

We’ll even provide you with a free cost comparison to see for yourself the savings your business could be making – the perfect document to present to head management.


The chances are, the most crucial aspect to your workplace is it precious data, with head management relying on this to keep businesses afloat and productive. With workers increasingly accessing and completing work from their own devices, security is at risk.

A winning sell with DaaS is due to all data being stored in the cloud and stored in hosted desktops, mobile and remote workers no longer need to access corporate data from unsafe and potentially detrimental networks that can cause viruses.

What workplace wouldn’t want a secure and safe network?


Every CEO wants their organisation to be productive whether they are inside or outside of the office. With DaaS, as long as there is an internet connection, there is access to their hosted desktops.

It is important to relay to management that DaaS almost completely eliminates employee downtime. Hosted Network provide an SLA of 99.95%, meaning that if on the rare occasion the server is unavailable, you’re able to redeem this downtime. You really do only pay for what you use, and it is extremely rare that employees are faced with downtime… meaning no revenue loss.

These are just a few points you can emphasise when pitching to management the importance and benefits of implementing a DaaS solution to your workforce. Identify your business pain points, and explore the ways DaaS can solve these.

As always, the Hosted Network Channel Team is here to provide you with the materials and information to assist you in pushing your DaaS pitch over the line.
