Hardware as a Service (HaaS)

Hardware as a Service

Many customers have found that the sudden lockdown situation has caused them to spend all their CAPEX budgets in kitting out the workforce for remote working and collaboration. This has caused many projects to be delayed or even cancelled. To help address this for both resellers and end users, Northamber, working with Tech Subscription Services, has introduced HaaS to provide a new approach to acquiring equipment and services, that uses quarterly OPEX payments and has levels of flexibility that go beyond what traditional leasing would have provided.


By taking end of term value into account it also provides a surprisingly cost effective solution as well as allowing the end user to add products along the way, choose a suitable payment term and doesn’t affect the reseller’s credit limits. This approach solves the CAPEX issues and allows projects to continue.


Contact the HaaS specialists at Northamber for more information or to assist with closing any upcoming opportunities.

CAPEX Explained

In simple terms, CAPEX (Capital Expenditure), is basically hard cash and large chunks of it. Historically, infrastructure, property, hardware, software, support, services, deployment etc show up on a company’s balance sheet, with an initial value attached as an asset. This initial value is written down (depreciated) over a period of time, typically 3–7 years. This has been considered the norm for large IT investments, but creates barriers for businesses with tight budgets and new businesses that want to take advantage of the best technologies available but don’t have the ready cash to hand. There has to be an alternative...
