What’s in it for your business?
With Technology transforming at a record pace – businesses are falling behind and struggling to keep up with the demand of a mobile enabled workforce. In the last 5 years there has been a significant shift from going to a fixed place of work at 9am and leaving at 5pm; to a more flexible approach in working from any location at any time. To enable the workforce to work productively in the field, there is a requirement for the latest tech. This requirement is now becoming an expectation for talented individuals when seeking employment, with some even considering mobile phones, laptops & tablets as important as salary and other benefits.
Purchasing the latest tech has always been viewed as a luxury, due to the significant cost implications. Many still compromise quality with cheaper alternatives. These alternatives tend to sit on the balance sheet and are well overdue replacement before they’ve finished depreciating.
Being at the forefront of technology is not only tough because of how quickly the manufacturers change models, but, on top of this the price of equipment is spiraling. If we consider the evolution of mobile phones for example; just 5 years ago the average price for a business smartphone would be around £200. Fast forward to 2019, the latest iPhone XS Max starts at a staggering £1,099.
The good news is there is a solution, with forward thinking businesses already taking advantage of the benefits of alternative ways to pay and consume hardware.
The answer is TaaS (Tech-as-a-Service):
TaaS from dbfb is simple:
– Choose what equipment you want to deploy into your business, whether it be from Apple, Samsung, Fujitsu, Microsoft and many more.
– Choose how often you want to replace your equipment (12, 24 or 36 months)
– All your hardware is provided in an easy to budget, fixed price.
– At the end of your term, you return the equipment and you refresh your estate to the latest model.
TaaS is essentially an operating lease and is therefore 100% tax deductible. We guarantee a market leading residual value on your equipment which means TaaS is financially compelling when comparing to more traditional ways of sourcing hardware – such as purchasing outright. You also benefit from protecting cash which in uncertain times is invaluable.
Typically, businesses will look to leasing solutions for vehicles and photocopiers; so why not lease your laptops / tablets / workstations and mobile phones, too?
All hardware provided by dbfb will be tracked and tagged via asset management software. We know who has what equipment, manage all warranty on your behalf and provide a streamlined and simple process for ordering and replacement upgrades.
Technology for far too long has been a resource, whereas dbfb view technology as an enabler. Deploy the right tech into your business and enable growth, security, productivity and watch your people and business thrive.
