7 Reasons Why Leasing Hardware Could Benefit Your School

Are you struggling to find the necessary funds to upgrade your school’s hardware? Rather than exhausting your school’s capital reserves, why not consider safeguarding them with an alternative payment option? Leasing your new IT equipment through a public-sector compliant Operating Lease is not only easy to arrange but also the most effective way to manage your school’s budgets. At Simply IT, we’ve teamed up with a trusted lease company to provide schools with a stress-free way to upgrade their hardware. In this blog post, we’ll explore the ways in which leasing is an advantageous approach for schools looking to upgrade their hardware.


The 7 benefits of leasing your school’s hardware:


 1. Cost Distribution

Spread the equipment cost over its useful life, aligning it with the warranty term.

2. Latest Technology

Option to refresh your hardware for new at the end of the lease.

3. Tailored Payment Schedules

Defer payments until April or September to align with your financial year.

4. Simplified Budgeting

In essence, we customise our lease plans to accommodate your specific needs, enabling your school to acquire new hardware when required, without the constraints of the financial year. With the option to choose a financing period ranging from 1 year to 5 years and the flexibility to pay quarterly or annually, it’s a hassle-free solution that can alleviate your financial burdens.
