Hardware as a Service
HaaS means the company has no large capital outlay, nor ownership of fast depreciating equipment. The business stays up-to-date, with quality equipment for a simple monthly payment.
Hardware as a Service from Crusade would be part of a fully managed support contract. This means that the solution will be fully installed by our engineers and any installation costs can be included in the monthly cost. The hardware is also fully supported by Crusade Computer Solutions. Under a lease arrangement you might be covered under a warranty, however any issue means shipping a unit back to the manufacturer. This is inconvenient in the case of a desktop PC, practically impossible with a server.
At the end of a standard leasing agreement you’ll be faced with various options including keeping the equipment for a final payment, continuing to lease the same equipment or sending it back to the lease company. With our Hardware as a Service solution we’ll work with you to decide the best option. In most cases this will mean that we come in, upgrade everything to new, up-to-date equipment and you simply continue to pay the same fee. No more worries about aging equipment or finding capital for new machines.
You can also add to your HaaS agreement, meaning as you grow your infrastructure can grow with you.
