To meet the constantly changing requirements of customers and employees, the majority of CFOs are planning to allocate more financial resources to their IT departments in 2022. This will result in tremendous costs and hidden costs could also prove to be a decisive factor. So what’s the best solution to finance your company’s IT? Buying? Operational leasing? Or Bechtle Device as a Service?
Let’s take a closer look at these three financing methods!
Purchasing IT is most definitely the simplest solution. When you found your company, you decide what equipment and accessories you and your employees need and then order from the supplier that offers the best prices and conditions. You have to pay up front. You may have a high initial investment but this is tax-deductible, meaning you will have benefits when it comes to taxes. For each new employee you order the same set of hardware again and again and your IT department takes care of the initial software installation. But what happens when the number of employees keeps growing and its causing your IT department to not have enough time for routine tasks? This is exactly where the many disadvantages of a direct purchase come into play.
Most companies opt for operative leasing when it comes to procuring IT. For a monthly fee, you receive the hardware you need. Another positive aspect—in the event that something breaks, it is replaced. You pay for the use and not the ownership.
And now the third possibility that Bechtle offers.
Device as a Service (DAAS) is similar to leasing…, but entails additional services. This offer is custom tailored to your companies requirements: You don’t have to worry about acquisition, operation or disposal of your IT. This eradicates hidden costs so that you can focus on strategic topics.
For a fixed monthly price, you have access to hardware that always works—installation, setup and maintenance included. In addition, you can upgrade at any time since you know the cost per workplace. The DAAS offer lets you take a load off your IT staff so that these can concentrate on more innovative tasks.
