As we all know that replacing computers in an office can be a very expensive process. What if I told you that there is a much more cost effective method to replacing computers and On-Premise servers. This method is what we in the industry call HAAS or Hardware As A Service.
The idea behind HAAS is that instead of having to upfront the cost of replacing PCs that are considered obsolete, or have become defective, is that instead we are able to provide the PC to you on a monthly low cost, and so that anytime there is a problem with the computer later down the road, we will be able to bring you another computer right away, to minimize your downtime.
Some of the other benefits to HAAS is that you can always stay up to date with current technology, as a new PC can be delivered with the latest most efficient O.S and hardware specs needed for your needs. With the monthly rate being fixed cost, you no longer have to worry about that unexpected expense. Using this model will also be able to increase productivity from your employees not being able to get work done to countless and constant computer issues. Now with this service a lot of providers will also include remote monitoring and maintenance to the PC throughout the lifespan of the computer. One last benefit would be that HAAS is a scalable service, as needs for your business grow, all that you will need to do is add more PCs, and if there is a decline for any reason, your HAAS provider can simply pick up the PCs and you no longer have to pay for them. This will keep you from having a closet full of old computers that are not getting utilized.
So as you can see is that there are multiple benefits to utilizing HAAS from a service provider, especially if your company is rapidly growing, or even needing to replace multiple PCs for any reason.
