If you want to ensure that your business isn’t using outdated technology, then Hardware as a Service (HaaS) will likely be the best option for you.
Hardware as a Service is a pay-as-you-go model where you pay a Managed Service Provider (MSP) like Custard, an affordable monthly fee to take care of all your hardware related issues, including upgrades, maintenance, and management. It’s a solution that offers small to medium size businesses numerous benefits, including:
For small to medium size businesses, cash flow is a crucial matter. HaaS is essentially like leasing hardware equipment so you don’t have to pay for all of it upfront. There is literally no upfront fee, sign a monthly contract and you are good to go. With a Managed Service Provider, you pay a fixed monthly cost for all the maintenance and upkeep that you need. This then allows you to turn a huge capital investment into a small, manageable operational expense that leaves you money for more important projects and business goals.
The best-of-the-best technology
With limited financial resources, it’s not easy for small or medium businesses to catch up with the latest technology. In a highly competitive world, you need to keep up with the very latest technology or you may fall behind. By using HaaS, a Managed Service Provider gives you cutting-edge hardware with the most recent upgrades, ensuring that your business can run resource-intensive applications and work quickly and efficiently.
To get the most out of your technology, hardware must be well managed and maintained, but small to medium size businesses tend to lack the proper expertise, knowledge or even the time to maintain it. Fortunately, HaaS providers like Custard have a team of hardware and IT specialists on hand, ready to proactively manage your equipment for you 24/7.
As time progresses, your business will grow and change, meaning your IT needs will change too. Using HaaS makes it extremely easy for you to add or decommission hardware when your business grows or scales down, meaning you won’t have to stick with unnecessary expensive IT equipment you no longer have a use for.
When it comes to IT security, software isn’t the only thing that needs to be up-to-date to defend against the latest cyber attacks - your hardware does too. HaaS providers such as Custard, will update hardware that may be susceptible to cyber threats. For instance, if you need a more powerful backup and recovery solution, Custard can help you obtain new equipment as required.
