Options For Your Adaptable Data Center®
Leasing the ADC
Leasing IT equipment, software and services can be a sensible alternative to cash purchases for certain organizations. At CMI, we aim to help Clients make intelligent IT purchasing decisions by offering a wide range of financing options to help ease the capital outlay as they build out their next generation Adaptable Data Centers® (ADC). By partnering with top financing firms, CMI can assist credit worthy Clients with flexible financing solutions that not only protect cash on the balance sheet, but also protect IT investments.
Even as corporations continue to stock pile cash at record levels, Clients are increasingly choosing to lease their IT products and services. Here are some of the reasons why:
- Obsolescence Protection
Leasing provides flexibility and nimbleness by allowing Clients to upgrade their IT environments with the latest technology in the middle or at the end of the lease; thus mitigating obsolescence risk with potentially no change to monthly payments.
- Optimize Cash Flow
No appetite for absorbing large upfront IT purchases? Leasing helps contain upfront expenditures and allows organizations to spread cost over the duration of the lease. Periodic payments also help better align project costs to anticipated benefits over time.
- Better Liquidity
Leasing helps conserve cash reserves, increase liquidity, and frees up lines of credit for strategic investments, growth initiatives and other essential business operations.
- Increased Predictability
By paying over time, organizations maintain a more predictable spending pattern with fixed payment schedules. Making monthly payments over the life of the lease allows organizations to stay within their budgets and limit unanticipated expenditures.
Regardless of your situation, leasing is a good option to explore when considering your next IT purchase. Our mission at CMI is to serve as obsessive advocates for our Clients in all aspects of their data center. This includes working with you on how to best procure the IT solutions that will help your organization construct a truly Adaptable Data Center®.
