IT infiltrates all solutions and equipment you have in your business. From photocopiers, your communications to your computers, IT is involved in every element to ensure that your teams are connected to your systems and can work fluidly, without interruption, safely and securely. This has become even more heightened post-pandemic with the shift in working procedures changing the way we work and how, for the future, our teams want to work.
In an ideal world, any business would purchase the hardware needed and have it implemented immediately. However, it is never as simple as that. Businesses need to plan expenditure, review costs from several suppliers and then consider the cost of maintaining those devices and whether they have the right support to ensure the uptime remains high.
Even after all that, when devices such as your photocopiers, PC’s or new phone system arrive, they must be installed, configured, and integrated into your existing networks. This can be an exceedingly lengthy process and you need the right internal capability to implement this. Often old data on legacy devices are not disposed of in the correct, legal manor because the focus is to implement the new and you just don’t have the expertise in the business to know what to do with any old data.
Leasing rather than purchasing?
Leasing your IT equipment really is an ideal solution for any business.
It essentially removes the burden from the business not only in terms of heavy upfront costs, but in terms of sourcing the right equipment, installing it, and ensuring the ongoing support needed.
If you purchase all of this, it becomes part of your fixed assets which depreciate over time, however with leasing, the assets remain the property of the service provider and you as the lessee only need to be concerned with the running costs.
Leasing provides transparency, not guesswork
Most companies can never know with certainty how much their workplace IT devices cost. In reality, do you know how much your printing costs? Also, beyond phone bills, are you able to truly ascertain what your telecommunications cost when you add in any servicing and cost of equipment?
By leasing your devices, you are assured of complete transparency as your service provider should clearly review and examine your needs pre-installation. You should then be assured of complete visibility of how much you are printing, who’s printing what and where, how your telecommunications are being used, as well as other reporting including who is available to take your customer calls, what calls have you missed. All these benefits are exceedingly valuable now we are all working in a world now where your teams can be working anywhere.
Give your teams the satisfaction they need, not frustration
When working with a Managed Service provider, your teams can be included in the appraisal of the type of IT devices you need in your business. When they are involved in the process they will feel their contribution is valuable to the business and their satisfaction that needs have been met will increase their loyalty to your business.
