Servers, Desktops, Laptops... Oh My!
If you run a business, you know that one expense that always creeps up and catches many people by surprise sometimes is technology hardware. No matter how much we wish they would last forever, Desktops, Laptops and Servers are one of those things that need to be replaced every three years (5 if you like to live on the edge) or you run the risk of downtime.
Unfortunately, that means making sure there is money set aside for replacements, new hires, and less we forget that one person who always wants the latest shiny new PC. In my lifetime in the technology industry, I don’t think I have every heard someone say “last year we budgeted exactly what we needed for technology. You either over budget and tie up those resources that could be used on other things; or worse, you under budget and have to find money from other places when that emergency purchase surprises you.
The other option available for larger organizations has always been leasing the technology to spread the payments out over 2-5 years which has challenges of its own. Making sure all the devices on the lease are replaced with new ones and the devices are back in time to not start incurring harsh penalties; trying to explain to employees why they need to stick it out with their PC for another 2-4 years even though they really want that new Surface that came out, or they had a desktop but now need a laptop. Oh, and that is all assuming you have a large enough order for a leasing company to pay attention to you, which is usually at least 25, sometimes 50 PC’s.
TaaS to the Rescue!
Well there is now a better way that LogicCloud IT can help your business keep their technology up to date without the headaches of leases or having to spend huge capital expenses every few years to replace Laptops, Workstations, or Servers. Through our Technology as a Service (#TaaS) program (AKA: Device/Hardware as a Service, #DaaS / #HaaS) you are able to pay a monthly per device fee to rent your new hardware, similar to a lease. Unlike traditional leasing, Technology as a Service has only a 12 month commitment for your device. After the first year your monthly payments drop by up to 30% (depending on the device you have) and you can keep using the device as long as you want. When you are ready, you can trade it in for a brand new device.
Don’t be fooled though, not all Technology as a Service programs are created the same. There are other providers out there touting their programs, however be sure to get the details. We have found that some only have refurbished or whitebox hardware, or only have one kind of device available as part of their Device as a Service plans. With the LogicCloud IT Technology as a Service program you can get brand new Servers, Desktops, Monitors, Laptops, Tablets and 2-in-ones; all from major manufacturers such as Microsoft, Lenovo, Dell, HP and Panasonic.
