Benefits of Leasing Your AV Equipment
8 out of 10 organizations and institutions choose to lease or finance their equipment to help them adapt to the world’s rapidly changing technology environment. Leasing enables you to make the best decisions at the right time to ensure your growth.
Control Your Budget
Access all the technology you need today while spreading the cost over the lease term. If something changes and you want to adjust your budget, we can revisit, revise, and restructure the lease to fit.
Invest Your Cash
Depreciated leasing equipment frees cash flow and lines of credit for other opportunities. Many organizations prefer to invest that money in revenue-generating projects or reserve it for the unexpected.
Change Your Mind
It’s hard to predict when the next generation of technology will be released. With leasing, you are never at the mercy of manufacturer timelines, making it the perfect solution for acquiring technology.
Manage Your Refresh
It’s easy to put off IT refresh when you don’t have a plan in place. But stretching IT beyond useful life just isn’t efficient. A disciplined IT refresh is easy with leasing. The next upgrade is always on the calendar.
Offload Your Disposal
Technology disposal can be a time-consuming headache. When you lease, simply send equipment back to the leasing company to sanitize and resell or disassemble and recycle, keeping you and the environment safe.
Support Your Team
The teams at Avidex and CSI are here to complement your own purchasing, finance and IT teams - placing orders, managing payments to vendors, working within your budget and providing proper disposal.
Increase Your Bottom Line
When done properly, leasing costs less than owning. A quality leasing company will invest a residual value in your equipment, which means you pay less than the original equipment cost, equating to real savings.
Listen to the Experts
Technology research analyst IDC says leasing provides a level of automation, flexibility, and simplicity that gives customers a strong IT asset management plan and reduces total cost of ownership.
Types of Leases
Fair Market Value – Operating Lease
- Allows the lessee to use the equipment for a pre-arranged time period for a fixed monthly payment
- Allows lessee to rewrite or add new equipment before end of term
- At the end of term, the lessee has the option to purchase at Fair Market Value, return or upgrade to new equipment
One-dollar Buyout – Capital Lease
- Higher monthly payment compared to an FMV lease
- At the end of term, the lessee purchases the equipment for $1
- Often used when an organization plans to keep equipment for a long period of time, or when obsolescence isn’t a concern
