Westcoast Financial Services isn't about just providing one solutions, but providing a solution
that caters for yours and your customers needs.
Here our 7 main finance options for you to choose from when purchasing Microsoft Surface.
Trade in disposal technology and data wipe services along with valuation of legacy technology to assist in the move to new platforms. If legacy technology has value, that capital can be leveraged to reduce the cost of moving to your new platform, or simply used to invest elsewhere.
Trade in can help avoid risk of data loss and ensure WEEE regulations are met, whilst also occasionally supporting a reduced cost of new technology adoption. When discussing finance of your next solution, simply provide the make, model, spec and age of your current technology, this will then be reviewed as part of the new deployment structure and strategy.
Structured finance to allow customers payments to increase as they receive a return on investment relating to the deployment of new technology. This is a guaranteed way of ensuring no impact on the cash flow of the business and obtaining technology with a true ROI which is very much aligned to deployment costs. What customers expect as cost efficiencies both from reduced maintenance, increased efficiencies and reduced carbon footprint in a business can more often than not, offset the cost of deployment of new technology.
Align IT to its lifecycle, avoiding obsolescence and maintenance costs. Costs of managing old technology can be exhausting for all companies and public sector customers who use technology day to day. The costs of downtime, inefficient legacy technology and the costs of user experience can dramatically impact any customer. With the latest technology on a defined refresh cycle, you are assured to have the latest and most efficient IT which in turn decreases downtime, increases productivity while ensuring the user experience is unhindered – retaining and attracting new talent.
Customers frequently have restrictive budgets due to costs of managing old technologies and looking only to the short term requirements. Customers can future proof their business by accelerating years 2,3,4,5 budget into year 1. A potential 400% increase in spend power will enable customers to obtain the technology required to meet business goals as opposed to allowing current budget to dictate technology investment levels.
If a customer is looking at transitioning between platforms there may be a requirement to dual test systems or a desire to avoid outlay in the near future. Work with WFS to align your initial expense on a project to go live or desired first payment date - simply spread costs over 1-5 years and pay nothing for 90 or 180 days.
Customers sometimes decide to purchase equipment outright because at that point in time cash flow was strong – we all know things can change and customers are sometimes keen to find ways to unlock capital invested in assets. Via a sale and leaseback mechanism and other refinancing solutions, we are able to help inject cash in your business today for assets you invested in yesterday. Minimum transaction size £50,000 excluding VAT.
As customers deploy new technology solutions, it is important to ensure a predicable cost but also to align the cost to rollout phases where applicable. We are able to help customers by aligning the payments to a fixed deployment strategy. And when pay as you grow models are not enough, where requested, we can build investment models allowing customers to reduce their deployed technology should situations change, allowing an element of flex down in the commitment to the technology – minimum transaction size £50,000 excluding VAT.
