Most businesses in the past have followed the model of choosing to purchase their hardware outright and then have signed a separate agreement for support, maintenance and security. This has been done for a number of reasons, mostly due to the lack of options previously with regard to hardware and support options provided by suppliers. Suppliers have not wanted to provide fixed cost support due to not being able to fully stand behind the products they sell, or because they have not had the resources to be able to provide the level of support businesses expect. This has lead to a few different problems such as hardware aging, security/software not being updated, large up-front capital expenditure, and a decline in worker productivity.
Hardware Solutions With Low Stress
Uniserve’s Hardware as a Service offering addresses all of the major concerns:
Aging Hardware/Productivity – through a Hardware as a Service solution, hardware is in a constant state of refresh based on a set term. This means that hardware being used never reaches end of life, and never degrades to the point of expected high risk of critical failure or to a point that slowdowns cause productivity declines.
Security/Software Updates – at Uniserve, our Hardware as a Service comes with baked-in enterprise security, business continuity measures and white-glove support. This ensures that the hardware that you and your team rely on is as robust and reliable as we can make it, that your data that is critical to your business is as safe from failure and security threats as possible.
Capital Expenditure – as the hardware (with security, backups, and support) has a set monthly cost, it makes it easier to plan and budget around it. Knowing that your capital expenditure is fixed allows you to comfortably budget more towards your operating expenditure without worrying about overexposure or surprise IT expenses.
The following is some of what Uniserve can provide under the Hardware as a Service model:
- Desktops and laptops
- Network infrastructure
- Servers and storage
