To Lease or not to Lease that is the Question

To Lease or not to Lease that is the Question

Guest Blog from Kirsty Rostron our resident leasing guru.

To Lease or not to Lease that is the QuestionBusiness moves fast especially if you are a organisation looking at mobile technology to solve business problems. So when it comes to acquiring equipment of any size shape or form that will enable your organisation to grow and become more profitable there is little time to ponder over critical decisions.

None more so than those of a financial nature, which if made on a whim – or based on the premise that it’s the way things have always been done in the past – could end up having an adverse affect on the business in both the short and long term.

With many businesses looking to convert Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) to Operational Expenditure (OPEX), there is most certainly more of a noticeable trend for these financially astute and progressive organisations to move away from the total and outright purchase of ever changing technology. Rather electing to acquire them via a lease agreement instead.

So why choose to go down this road? Other than the obvious one of keeping expenditure off the bottom line and more money in the bank for those unforeseen rainy days leasing has so many other benefits. All of which you simply can’t afford to ignore. Especially when there is a growing awareness among senior managers that since putting leasing to the test and experiencing the benefits first hand, they would never consider returning to what they did before.

So what exactly are the benefits of leasing?

Leasing delivers a great many financial benefits and the effects are long-term and secure. This helps to provide you and others in the organisation with a more favorable experience when using the newly acquired product. The other benefits may not seem as obvious at first as the financial ones but are no less important and impactful when you consider them in more detail. These are just a handful:

  1. Choosing to lease means that you get your product straight away rather than when budgets allow. Enabling everyone to start using that much needed device or solution as soon as possible.
  2. By leasing you are placed into a fixed agreement which remains secure throughout the lease period. You won’t have to worry about changes and unpredictability as the lease option is uncomplicated and safe. This allows you take more calculated risks in other areas of your business.
  3. Leasing offers you the flexibility to be able to upgrade your enterprise mobility technology at any stage throughout the agreement by simply restructuring the payment schedule. Allowing you to react to rapidly changing market dynamics and steal the march on competitors.
  4. Leasing is extremely cost efficient. You can offset 100% of the rentals against your tax liability to maximise tax efficiency. Learn More.
  5. Leasing benefits the future of your business. Cash purchase only secures the fact that you have the product you need, but it doesn’t offer you the long-term benefits that leasing does. Leasing equipment releases valuable working capital for alternative projects within your business.

Key Point: To Lease or not to Lease that is the Question ? Over £30 billion of Capital equipment was financed in 2016 in the UK alone and it’s estimated that around 90% of The Times Top 100 companies use leasing as a means to acquire equipment and business solutions, so they must be onto a good thing. In fact now that you know a lot more about the benefits, it begs the question. What’s stopping you from experiencing the power of leasing?

GottaBeMobile MobileDemand xTablet T7200 Review 1
T7200 In the Rain

GottaBeMobile MobileDemand xTablet T7200 Review. T7200 is a fully ruggedized Tablet PC built for professionals that don’t have the luxury of working in cozy office buildings. This tablet means business and packs a several features mobile users will appreciate.

 

 

MobileDemand began selling Tablet PCs well before Apple and others popularized consumer tablets. The company builds industrial-strength tablets that run Windows and are usable in just about any environment.

The xTablet T7200 improves on the xTablet T7000, which MobileDemand introduced three years ago. This time around, MobileDemand’s improved the display, loaded it with faster components and upgraded its wireless capabilities.

With a starting price of $2,000, the xTablet T7200 is more expensive than non-ruggedized tablets, but it’s a relative bargain for businesses that can’t afford downtime or that are able to improve processes to a point where the tablets pay for themselves.

The MobileDemand xTablet T7200 is a welcome reminder that it’s important to pick the right tool for the job. It isn’t the slimmest or lightest tablet available, but its durability and adaptive display make it a smart choice for organizations that need to run Windows applications reliably outside of the office.

xTablet T7200 Durability

Like other MobileDemand tablets, the xTablet T7200 meets military standards for durability. This tablet can operate in temperatures of up to 140 F, withstand drops onto hard surfaces and repel water and debris.

There were zero marks on our review unit after abusing it for a couple of days.

xTablet T7200 Display

The xTablet T7200 features a 7″ anti-glare touchscreen display with a 1024 x 600 resolution. The optional digitizer is a must-have to effectively navigate Windows 7 and input text on the go with a display this size. Inking works reasonably well and is fine for jotting down notes and filling forms. The relatively small screen doesn’t provide enough real estate for inking lengthy documents. For that task, users would be better off docking the tablet.
