Turn your IT hardware costs from a capital investment into an operational expense with Hardware as a Service with Crown MS.

Can your business afford to replace essential IT hardware quick enough to run properly?

IT hardware for both office space and infrastructure are among the most expensive outlays a business must budget for. Hardware as a Service is a complete solution for companies that do not want the capital outlay, cannot afford, or do not want to be saddled with rapidly depreciating assets.

Stay current

Your IT will always be current because we refresh your hardware before it becomes obsolete to keep your business efficient and profitable.

With the capital outlay eliminated by using our HaaS solution, you can end the burdensome struggle between maintaining budget costs and keeping up with the latest hardware. We can outfit your organisation with the computers, workstations, monitors, printers and all the essential hardware you need in the workplace and working from home solutions. The HaaS IT hardware is replaced if it malfunctions and is refreshed before obsolescence. This means your hardware remains current with just the monthly cost of your managed services agreement.

Save money on essential, but expensive hardware

Leave your old computer hardware behind with our HaaS offering.

Keeping your hardware maintained and having to upgrade computer hardware and software licensing as part of a company's infrastructure are difficult endeavours for any sized business. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) have it exceptionally tough when crucial parts of computer hardware fail as they do not often have the necessary capital to immediately replace the malfunctioning piece of hardware. SMEs recognize this as an issue critical to the competitiveness of their business.

The substantial loss of efficiency and productivity that a company must endure by trying to work on and maintain out of date technology can be a major hindrance in being able to remain profitable. At Crown MS we offer Hardware as a Service for what you would pay by using traditional leasing or financing methods for the same equipment. With our HaaS offering, you can transfer the capital expense of purchasing new hardware into an operational expense inside a contract with us. This allows you to have relatively static IT costs. In this way, Crown MS can make a substantial and positive difference in your company's bottom line

Benefits of HaaS

  • Financing keeps your equipment up to date. Computers and other equipment eventually become obsolete. With financing, you pass the financial burden to the equipment financing company. For example, let’s say you have a two-year lease on a copy machine. After that lease expires, you are free to finance whatever equipment is newer, faster and cheaper.  In fact, 65% of respondents to a 2005 Equipment Leasing Association survey said the ability to have the latest equipment was leasing’s number-one perceived benefit.

  • You’ll have predictable monthly expenses. With a lease, you have a pre-determined monthly line item, which can help you budget more effectively. 35% of respondents to the Equipment Leasing Association’s survey said this was leasing’s second-highest benefit.

  • No Up-Front Capital Expense. No full cost payment up front and lower total cost of ownership over the life of the solution. When investing in 3-5-year technology expenditures, why would you accrue those costs in one year, or worse - one payment!

  • End of Term Flexibility. At the end of the term, leasing gives you the option of simply returning the equipment, purchasing it outright at an agreed current market value or extending the contract, making it easier to cascade, upgrade or dispose of your equipment.

  • More flexible payment options. Different payment structures can be tailored to fit your specific needs. For example, periodic payments can be structured to increase, decrease or stay constant over time.  Delayed pay dates also help to fit into fiscal cycles.

  • Faster implementation. Due to eliminating upfront capital requirements, you can implement hardware initiatives when you need the equipment/solution, instead of when your budget allows it.

  • Reduced risk.  Financing an entire hardware solution allows you to mitigate the risk of technology budget surprises.

  • We own the asset. As Crown MS retains ownership of the hardware, you do not have to worry about rapidly depreciating assets on your balance sheet.
