As businesses grow, so too will their IT needs.
This is where ASUS steps in with its ASUS for Business, which aims to help and support local Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in bringing digital technology into their business, by both streamlining their business processes and making it more cost-effective.
One way in which ASUS strives to help SMEs is by providing a wide range of devices SMEs can choose from, to best suit their needs. These products range from desktops, to laptops, to networking devices, and more.

Such as how the ASUS ExpertBook B9 (B9450) laptop’s lightweight build allows for increased portability while still carrying military-grade durability to ensures that your laptop will last as long as possible.
ASUS for Business has helped several companies, including the China Railway. With lead engineer Wang Hong making full use of the ultra-durable ASUS business laptop as his work companion, he was able to assist in the construction of the China Railway High-Speed, which spans more than 127,000km.
The Maritime Traffic in China also stood to benefit from ASUS for Business with the use of ASUS’ highly durable laptops, designed to withstand the varied weather conditions one experiences out at sea. With ASUS’ laptops, essential navigation data could be pulled up quickly, while maintaining secure communications with the shore office at all times.
To help companies be more cost-efficient, ASUS has introduced the Device as a Service (DaaS) as part of its ASUS for Business model. DaaS is a subscription-based service to help businesses be more cost-efficient by providing them with flexible pricing models to lease ASUS business devices. All while providing IT support and maintenance, to allow companies to free up their cash flow for other important corporate investments.
Some of the benefits to subscribing to ASUS’ DaaS includes:

- No need to worry about the disposal and data-erasure of equipment as it will be handled by ASUS at the end of the lease.
