Hardware Acquisition Options for Businesses
Most businesses, regardless of size or industry, rely on various IT hardware products to keep their company running smoothly. As a small business owner, you may feel like you can’t afford the leading equipment that big corporations enjoy. However, by leasing hardware from Americom, you can access top equipment without draining your savings.
Nowadays, most business owners choose to collect, document, and store business data on their network instead of using paper files. As more business functions move to the cloud, employees need access to hardware and software to do their jobs. Depending on your business, your employees may only need a laptop and a mouse, or they may need access to a desktop computer, monitor, workstation, printer, desk phone, headset, hard drive, and printer.
If you partner with Americom for IT hardware, you have the option to lease or buy equipment from leading brands such as Dell, Barracuda, HP, Datto, and Fortinet.
Buying IT Hardware
Information technology hardware can be expensive, especially if you prioritize purchasing from trusted industry leaders. However, tax deductions exist for businesses that choose to purchase equipment. Under section 179 of the U.S. tax code, companies can write off the amount they spent on IT equipment during a given year, but only if they bought it outright. As a result, buying IT hardware can be a cost-effective option for business owners.
IT Hardware Leasing
If your business does not have the capital to purchase IT equipment for your employees, you have the option of leasing equipment. When leasing hardware, you choose a leasing term and equipment financing options. At the end of your lease term, you can return your equipment, purchase it from your provider, or upgrade to the latest model. IT hardware leasing is an excellent buying alternative for businesses with a tight budget that want access to the most up-to-date equipment.
The Basics and Benefits of Hardware as a Service (HaaS)
Though leasing is an affordable way for businesses to benefit from advanced technology, it has its pros and cons. Lease agreements can be restrictive, and your business needs can change throughout a long-term lease. Additionally, your business is responsible for the troubleshooting, maintenance, and upkeep of equipment. If you want the benefits of leased equipment without the restrictions, Americom offers hardware as a service (HaaS).
HaaS differs from equipment leasing in one fundamental way—your HaaS provider handles the sourcing, installation, and management of your rented IT equipment. With HaaS, your monthly payment covers the equipment and the services you receive from your IT provider. As a result, you don’t have to worry about finding new equipment to fit your needs at the end of a lease term—your HaaS provider does that for you.
At Americom, we offer HaaS services that help you get the most out of your leased IT equipment and we step in to solve problems if you experience equipment issues. As an Americom HaaS partner, you benefit from the cost savings of leasing and our service team’s IT expertise.
