The world today provides us with many options to acquire products from buying outright to renting, leasing, hiring, subscribing and more.
Each method of purchase has its own advantages and disadvantages and buyers weigh up the pros and cons of each before deciding.
In more recent times, it has become a lot easier for businesses to lease hardware thanks to the solution that is Hardware-as-a-Service.
What is Hardware-as-a-Service?
Hardware-as-a-Service provides companies with access to
hardware, installation, maintenance and upgrades.
Sound expensive? It’s not!
The benefit of hardware-as-a-service is simply that
customers pay for the value provided by the service (a monthly subscription),
as opposed to the hardware itself. What’s
more … solutions
are built around real customer needs and are aimed to solve problems.
What are the benefits of Hardware-as-a-Service?
Whilst you may not be interested in the actual hardware, you will be keen to know the benefits of hardware for your business:
- No initial investment – you will have all new equipment without the expense that comes with it.
- HaaS makes economic sense – your hardware won’t be an asset; it will be an operating cost.
- No FoMo – you won’t experience the “Fear of Missing Out” as you’ll always have the latest and greatest technology at your disposal without the expense.
- Ongoing maintenance and support – you will receive ongoing maintenance and support.
- Fully managed service - all monitoring, maintenance and support will be covered.
- Worry free solution – you will never need to worry about your hardware and equipment because someone will be doing it for you. This allows you to concentrate on what you do best – running your business.
