The way we buy technology has changed; with the rapid advancements in technology, the need to upgrade obsolete technology more frequently has brought on a new, more preferred way to pay for these solutions. Technology-as-a-Service (TaaS) allows organizations to pay for workplace technology with a model that bundles both the equipment and support services into one easy monthly payment.
Unlike traditional methods of procurement, TaaS does not end in ownership, providing added flexibility and scalability when the organization’s needs change or grow. TaaS offers many benefits, including:
TaaS is a payment program for organizations that do not want to own their technology solutions, but rather want the benefit in usage and access of the solution. Since TaaS is an operating expense, this model allows you to preserve cash flow so you can use your capital for revenue generating business activities. And, when considering the time value of money, TaaS is often the lowest cost method of procurement.
Flexibility and Scalability
Vistacom’s TaaS program offers a unique option through Solution Replacement Guarantee (SRG). SRG is protection from being locked into technology that no longer serves your needs. If your solution lacks the ability to meet the needs of your business or has become obsolete for any reason, you have the option to upgrade to a brand-new solution at any point during the term without financial penalty.
If you reach the end of your contract term, you have the ability to evaluate your needs and usage of the technology. A lot can change in 3-5 years. You may need to upgrade, or renew with the SRG, or you may just want to return the equipment. You will have options that you can decide on when that time comes.
Peace of Mind & Protection
Always have protection. Lock-in the cost of our maintenance or support service agreement at today’s labor rates for the duration of your contract term. The monthly cost will be bundled without finance charges into the same payment as your equipment, ensuring your systems are always up and running.
Protect your technology in the event of a natural disaster with our Act of God coverage. Under the agreement, we pay your insurance deductible if your equipment is damaged by any natural disaster.
TaaS is fast becoming the preferred way to pay for technology versus capital expense payment options such as leasing, bank loans, and cash purchases, thereby allowing businesses to stay at the forefront of technology so they can remain competitive and prevent obsolete technology from creating a bottleneck in growth opportunities. As such, Vistacom’s new TaaS offering is an efficient and cost-effective way to bundle technology solutions and support services into a convenient subscription-based monthly payment option.
In today’s work environment, AV technology has become the relied upon communication tool, internally and externally. There is no doubt these systems are essential and necessary. Ensuring that these systems are proactively maintained and serviced is not only required, but also too much of a risk not to. Vistacom’s Managed Services suite of proactive services include remote testing, real-time monitoring, diagnostics, and repair.
