In our first blog that talked about Hardware as a Service (HaaS), we mentioned the primary benefit as being money savings – and that still stands. As a pay-as-you-go model that enables you to pay your managed services provider a monthly fee while they take care of all of your hardware updates, maintenance and management, HaaS brings a lot more than just capital cutting to the table. Here, we’re going to explore the reality of kissing out-of-date technology goodbye by using Hardware as a Service.
First, let us say this: If you’re burdened down by limited financial resources – and who these days isn’t, really? – it’s not easy to keep up with the latest technology. Actually, this applies to industries and sectors outside the ones we’re talking about here; imagine being, for example, a home theater/consumer electronics enthusiast on a limited budget, but constantly being privy to seeing all the latest and greatest gadgets, televisions and more that you just can’t get your hands on. Doesn’t sound like fun, does it? Likewise, in a highly-competitive business arena, you cannot be at the top of your game with a century-old CPU while your competitors around you all benefit from the latest technology. By taking advantage of Hardware as a Service, your MSP has a responsibility to ensure that all of your hardware is capable of handling tasks efficiently.
And they will achieve that through hardware upgrades and replacements.
We’ll even go so far as to say that outdated IT equipment can be costly, especially to a small or midsized organization, as it leads to poor productivity, lost data and lower revenue. So by not having to spend a copious amount of money upfront for your next major network hardware upgrade, HaaS brings with it the financial benefit of converting a large capital expense into a more manageable operating expense.
In saying goodbye to obsolescence by considering Hardware as a Service, you can experience timely upgrades to state-of-the-art technology, thus eliminating a great deal of buyer angst that far too often accompanies IT purchases.
This brings to mind “Moore’s Law,” which states that you can’t expect to be successful in tomorrow’s business landscape using yesterday’s tools. Indeed, Hardware as a Service represents an ideal way to remain current with bleeding-edge tech specific to your industry and business goals and needs – from multifunction copiers and printers to servers, computers, peripherals and much more.
