Hardware as a Service
Networking and technology have certainly come a long way…but not always for the better, unfortunately. Remember the seventies when you weren’t even allowed to own your own phone? Remember when your first PC was not much more than a great word processor and a cool financial spreadsheet and calculator. Choices were relatively simple and few when it came to telephone and data processing equipment.
Today’s technology solutions are a little more complex and keeping them up to date with current software revisions, hardware management and monitoring, and annual maintenance contracts requires attention. Most businesses find that the initial purchase price of the hardware is only a fraction of the total cost of ownership. Then, there is the simple reality that most technology equipment has a useful life of around 5 years before obsolescence sets in and the process starts all over again.
Over time a majority of our customers have come to realize that technology hardware ownership does not work for them. These customers prefer to let the T1 Company bundle the hardware along with the monthly service fee. The T1 Company maintains ownership of the equipment and is responsible for all warranty and maintenance, including replacement of failed hardware. As part of this Hardware as a Service (HaaS) offering, The T1 Company provides a guarantee against obsolescence by offering to replace any piece of gear that has been in service for 60 months or more with brand new up to date current hardware technology.
