The Benefits of Rental
Cash Flow Conservation with no upfront capital layout
When you place your essential equipment on a rental, there is no deposit required and no significant cash outlay from your cash flow. You can now use your cash more effectively by investing it, rather than using it for business infrastructure. You can benefit a lot from this free cash.
Off Balance Sheet Financing
Properly structuring your equipment rental results in additional benefits which have immense implications on the business profitability. By having your Office Equipment on rental, your capital is untouched and your business enjoys the benefit of a VAT deductable operating expense
Being flexible when it comes to payments, upgrades and the addition of more technology to meet your business needs means that a rental solution allows you the freedom to expand and grow your business at your own pace.
Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Total Cost of Ownership should be calculated by all institutions. Even a single PC has cost factors associated with it and one must be aware of the effect that purchasing has on the total cost of ownership. Managers are advised to use a least an average cost per computer to plan for expenses and also allow comparisons in the decision-making process.
Credit Line Preservation
Renting allows you to preserve the available credit from your bank for additional working capital, operations, expansion and acquisitions. When conducting equipment financing through your bank, you usually exhaust your available credit. Not a good option for any business wanting to grow.
Having the expenses amortized over the rental term allows your organization to effectively budget over the term of the rental. This means that you always know exactly how much cash you have available each month and can better plan your finances accordingly. Efficient planning leads to profit increase.
IT Asset Lifecycle Management
Hardware assets, like any other assets, are acquired and then, eventually, retired. A rental solution manages the lifecycle of the asset through Procurement, Deployment, Upgrades, Maintenance and, finally, Retirement. This reduces your costs as well as your risks, while increasing your service quality.
