Discover the benefits of leasing your technology estate

10 reasons why you should lease rather than purchase your IT equipment

Funding cuts for public sector institutions has been a real issue for a number of years now. Continual budget cuts are leaving public sector establishments struggling to keep up with an ever-growing digital world. CHG has a wealth of experience in tailoring solutions to allow a business to realise its IT objectives. CHG’s technology leasing & asset management solution allows an institution to enjoy today’s technology with tomorrow’s budget, whilst placing tomorrow’s disposal considerations with CHG.

We understand that some public sector institutions remain sceptical about adopting a finance solution. Take a look at these 10 reasons how a leasing solution could pave the way forward for you & your institution.

1. Lower total cost of ownership

The sum of the rentals will typically be lower than the capital cost of the equipment

2. Be creative with your budget

Make your budget go further by deferring payments to match your budget alignment allowing you to utilise precious cash reserves to fund other projects

3. Effective cost management

Spread the cost of your chosen assets over their economic useful life

4. Lifecycle refresh programme

A financial solution provides a natural conclusion for your assets and presents a perfect opportunity to implement a replacement programme

5. Accurate Projections

Financing allows you to accurately forecast which equipment needs to be replaced up to 12 months before the end of the agreement. Thus, allowing you to easily plan your equipment replacement programme

6. Lower maintenance costs

With a regular refresh cycle in place you can be sure your technology is up-to-date and therefore less likely to breakdown - resulting in less downtime for you and your assets

7. Make the refresh work for you

By aligning your assets useful life, you can increase your bargaining power with suppliers by ordering in bulk

8. Stay one step ahead

In today's world the latest gadget, invention or technological advancement always appears to be just around the corner. With a financial solution you can stay up-to-date with all the latest technology and trends

9. Asset Management

Gain transparency of your technology portfolio whilst reducing administration burden, allowing you to focus on what's important to you via our own asset management system TESMA®

10. Increased Harmony

By having the latest innovations available to staff and students you can ensure the best working/learning environment possible

"For almost a decade we have developed our relationship with CHG and they have become our primary finance provider. We need to make the right financial decisions, and when you are in an established relationship you can hold sensible discussions and obtain the flexibility we feel is important to us. In our dealings with CHG we have never been stung by a cost at the end of term, despite the heavy use of our equipment. We are very busy with contracts around May/June time. CHG recognise and respond to the extra attention the college needs during this period. You don't always get that with a service relationship!"
