Computer Leasing Small Business UK
Here at WestWon, we are experts in providing small businesses with leasing options on all IT equipment including computers. We have just recently gone through the process of upgrading a number of computers. It was a project that we thought was going to be really simple and cheap.
We started off by speaking to a few computer suppliers and working out what computer manufacturer we should go with. Eventually, quotes began to come in and it came to our attention that it was not going to be as cheap as we thought. Our £400 budget per device had doubled to £800. To make matters worse, as we were looking to buy new computers for our operations team, we also had to update our marketing personnel. What was going to be a simple and cheap solution started to look to be a £10,000 plus investment!
Furthermore, other employees started to mention that their two-year-old Lenovo laptop were slowing down too. The word went around and the office in Leicester heard that there was going to be an IT refresh. Soon after, we were looking at a £20,000 investment!
SME’s replacing one computer at a time or a complete IT refresh
Our situation is the same as many SME companies in the UK. What starts off as a modest IT replacement program turns out to be a complete refresh. Our key question was, do we replace a couple of computers every month or just do them all at the same time?
Clearly there are benefits to both options. If you have limited internal IT resources, changing a few every month makes sense. Also, if you are paying cash, it’s easy to cash flow this out of existing finance. However, it’s often cheaper for an IT company to change all your computers and laptops at the same time. It also stops all issues regarding who gets upgraded first!
One of the key challenges a small business have with regards to buying new computers is how to pay for them.
