Worry Less With Hardware-as-a-Service

Worry Less With Hardware-as-a-Service

Your business relies on mission-critical hardware that keeps its infrastructure running, including servers, workstations, and networking components. However, these pieces of technology require maintenance in order to function properly, and replacement every so often to keep the risk of downtime and hardware failure to a minimum. Thankfully, modern managed IT services have yielded a solution to this issue that can make managing your hardware infrastructure as easy as possible: Hardware as a Service.

Hardware as a Service, or HaaS, allows your organization to reap the benefits of multiple hardware refreshes on a consistent basis, without the incredibly high costs of replacing hardware so often. After all, hardware doesn’t last forever, and any organization that thinks it does should know that all good things must eventually come to an end--whether it was predicted or not.

More often than not, small businesses don’t upgrade their hardware as often as they should. The reasoning for this is that their technology budget is limited, and therefore keeps them from investing in new solutions when they need them. Furthermore, since it’s difficult to figure hardware refreshes into your budget due to their up-front costs, it’s even more troublesome when a hardware failure strikes and throws your organization for a loop. Therefore, you’re paying not just to replace your hardware, but for the downtime that it’s causing while your employees can’t perform their daily duties.

Hardware as a Service addresses these issues by offering businesses a way to replace hardware without breaking the budget. It does this through offering monthly payments according to a service level agreement, which lets your organization acquire new hardware within a certain budget. Here are some of the other benefits that HaaS delivers:

  • An IT roadmap: One of the most valuable assets offered by HaaS is a plan for the future. We can help you build a plan for how you want to replace your hardware in the future, ensuring that you don’t go too long without a hardware upgrade.
  • Lower upfront costs: You’ll only be paying a flat monthly rate for the acquisition of new hardware, which is a considerable improvement over outright purchasing it. Most HaaS providers will budget in future upgrades and management to keep your equipment running smoothly as time goes on.
  • The latest hardware, now: Since you’re taking full advantage of hardware refreshes, you’ll be more likely to use the most up-to-date hardware solutions on the market. This means that you’ll be less prone to security issues, and you might even improve productivity with new features and functionality that weren’t available when you first signed on.

Does your organization want to take full advantage of the latest hardware without the tricky-to-manage price tag? If so, reach out to 4IT. We can discuss your organization’s specific needs and create a service level agreement that helps your business do what it does best, without the trouble of worrying about technology maintenance or replacement.
