The Purchase Price Verses the Cost of Ownership
When buying technology the question that is never asked is: What is the cost of ownership? When looking at a cash proposal, what you are seeing is the purchase price of the equipment and software. It is only after you own it that the true cost is realized.
Maintenance, upgrades, software license, break and fix, and program changes are costs after the purchase to keep technology working for you.
Every time a technician comes into your business money goes out.
Let's Buy a Car
Let's break this down into something everyone can understand. You are purchasing a new car and you are spending $25,000.00 on the purchase. You have many choices, so what is driving your decision on which car you buy? It could be comfort or economy.
Back to Business Technology
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to make a monthly payment that can be budgeted for your business for all your technology needs? This would allow you to invest your capital in your customers so you can reap the rewards from your cash on hand.
Included in this fixed price is not only the equipment cost, but the fees for maintenance, upgrades, software license, break and fix, program changes, and all of the costs of ownership.
So when the technician walks in the door you have the peace of mind that no matter the issue it will be resolved at no additional expense, and with that being the case you would make sure everything stays current and everyone gets the training they need.
And your technology will never be out of date, but will be replaced when needed at no additional cost.
Doesn't this sound just too good to be true!?!
