Hardware procurement: Purchase, contract subsidy or leasing with Workplace as a Service

Equip your company with the hardware you need at reasonable prices.

Getting the right hardware – from PC to notebooks, tablets and company phones – is very time consuming. Which device best meets the requirements of your own IT environment, where do you get the best price and which provider has the most attractive payment terms? This process can easily become a full-time job even if you’re just handling a small number of devices.

We, as BPV Enterprise Group, have the big distributors at our hands and our specialists are exploring the market on a daily basis. Thanks to the knowledge built up over many years, we realistically assess which hardware you need and procure it at the best prices. This frees up resources in your IT department, that you can use for more important tasks.

Please no more hardware than necessary.

Every employee has a telephone, a company mobile phone, a PC, a tablet and possibly a private mobile phone. Is this necessary? We know how and with what you work most efficiently with. On request, we analyze the current state: which hardware your employees have, which terms exist for rent or leasing contracts – and give you an honest assessment of where we see a need for change. Together with you, we will discuss whether a purchase or leasing model covers your requirements. The decision “lease or buy” differs for many companies. Below we will show you the advantages of both options. If you are unsure, let’s talk about this.

Hardware leasing: Workplace as a Service (WaaS)

The problem with hardware is that it may be outdated again tomorrow. That’s why many companies prefer the flexibility of Workplace as a Service – WaaS for short. The required hardware is not bought, but leased. Comparable to vehicle leasing, you are not the owner, but pay monthly leasing installments for use. We take care of the maintenance measures for you. This means that BPV Enterprise Group takes care of upgrades, maintenance and replacement of defective and stolen devices if you like to. The leasing rates depend on the mileage of the contract and how many workplaces are set up.

BPV Enterprise Group offers you the complete service: The hardware procurement takes place at the best prices, the devices are set up directly, replaced in the event of damage and old devices are sustainably disposed of, as well as certified and logged deleted in order to protect sensitive company data. So you have not only saved time, but the technology is always up to date, whether it concerns updates or licenses. We call this LIAM (Lifecycle Asset Management). This allows you to react quickly and flexibly to changes in your company. New colleagues receive their devices immediately. Should there be a loss of jobs in your company, you do not have any unnecessary hardware in the warehouse that binds capital.

Another advantage is the tax deductibility. The IT costs for leasing and maintaining the hardware are recorded monthly to your operating costs (Opex). Opex expenses have several advantages: On the one hand, you have lower capital expenditures because you do not buy the devices, but lease them. Opex expenses can also be claimed in full for tax purposes. On the other hand, you can invest the capital thus saved in other things or areas thereby maximize your profit.

The advantages of WaaS:

  • Reducing capital commitment to rapidly aging technology
  • Greater flexibility – with your trust, we create freedom and efficiency in the workplace
  • The software procurement also runs through us on request – so the software is always up to date
  • Better scalability – you know the monthly costs; repair costs and losses in case of theft are eliminated
  • Elimination of high acquisition costs
  • Tax advantage, due to monthly operating costs (Opex)
  • Satisfied employees thanks to functioning and ready technology
  • 24-hour emergency service in case of defect or loss
  • Sustainable disposal of waste equipment
  • Certified & logged data deletion
  • Concentration on your core business

If leasing is out of the question – you can also buy the hardware from us

Some companies are resisting the monthly rent of the hardware. If you rather spend money once, the devices belong to you and no further costs arise –  apart from the operating and maintenance costs. The hardware that has been ordered is directly incorporated into the balance sheet as an investment expenditure.

However, keep in mind that you will need to find the right hardware at a good price-performance ratio. Not all companies know the market as well as we do, and know which provider has the best offer for which requirements. In addition, many companies limit themselves to just one provider, so that they do not have two or more contact persons for the hardware – this restricts them.

Another disadvantage when buying hardware instead of leasing it are defective or stolen devices. Once the warranty period has expired, a manufacturer will hardly replace defective devices free of charge. If you have any not taken out theft insurance, the procurement of new devices can be expensive – not to mention the time needed to get new hardware

Please also think about the professional disposal of the old equipment. When the life cycle of a device is over, it is replaced by a new device. However, the old hardware must be disposed off professionally, software must be rendered harmless. Maybe you will get a few euros for the old computers, if you’re lucky.

No matter what you decide, whether you want to buy or lease the hardware: We at BPV Enterprise Group take care of a sustainable disposal of your old equipment, replace defective or stolen devices within 24 hours and have a perfect overview of the entire market. So we can promise you the procurement of the hardware at the best prices.

The advantages of buying hardware:

  • The hardware passes into your possession after purchase.
  • You do not have to pay any monthly costs (except operating and maintenance costs).
  • Here, too, you have the opportunity to use our services.

Do you have any other wishes?

Whether you buy or lease the right hardware from us: We will supply you with the necessary accessories right away. We will also equip you with headphones, mouse, keyboard, docking station, monitor and much more, so that the mobile workplace is complete.
On request, we can upload the latest software and the licenses suitable for your company and offer you the latest operating system. We cooperate with the best manufacturers that exist on the market, such as Microsoft, Lenovo, Samsung, Apple, HP, Dell, Huawai, Google and more.

What about treaty subsidies?

Mobile phone providers are happy to offer the devices at the same time as the rates. Because if you purchase your devices via the contract, you would receive particularly cheap devices“. This is suggested to many buyers and companies. But the customer then pays significantly more money per month for this contract and thus the value of the mobile phone over the term completely. Seen in this way, these contract constellations represent an installment purchase of a device combination with a rate.

We at BPV Enterprise Group have the insight into the price jungle. We look at your requirements, compare all important providers in the market and can agree on a best price for you through our large number of customers. Since we also act as an interface between you and the mobile phone providers, you only have one contact person. You can be sure that we always act transparently and fairly. Let’s talk about your wishes.

    Lisa-Marie Spindler Office Management, Office Management AAD Kanaltechnik Spindler GmbH & Co. KG

    Our colleagues travel a lot into regions that are only opened up through our work. As a result, we have the highest requirements for network quality and the timely replacement of devices in the event of a defect. The BPV Group not only takes up this challenge, but puts its heart and soul into the assigned tasks and solves them with flying colours.

    Tim Richter Construction Management, Purchasing IT and Telecommunications BATTEUX Bauunternehmung GmbH & Co. KG

    In our company, we had contracts with widely different terms and conditions. Keeping an eye on everything has cost us valuable resources, which we would rather invest in our own projects. BPV team has helped us with various measures to optimize costs, significantly streamline the entire structure and create uniform running times. We still have contracts with different network operators, but BPV also controls and manages this colourful mix from a single source and makes our work significantly easier.
