- Micha Rüegger
A few years ago, manufacturers of pulp products registered a spontaneous increase in sale. The sales figures for paper handkerchiefs and kitchen rolls shot to epic heights within a few days. The trigger: a fundamental change in the sales concept from the software giant Adobe.
The manufacturing giant turned its back on traditional sales model and pursued a SaaS or Software-as-a-Service concept. The consequences manifested in rage and despair only so foaming customers around the world, whose cleaning staff now faced the seemingly unsolvable task, to dry the offices and operating rooms again. So it says at least one among distributors of pulp products always like told legend.
It was a sparkling but small star on the horizon of industrial software distribution a few years ago, the Saas-model has now mutated into an all-consuming supernova whose appeal can not be resisted even by manufacturing companies. So why not jump on the train? After all, renting software offers a number of advantages?
Is software rental really the ultimate solution for an advanced technological infrastructure?
If you have the choice, you would rather follow a trend or to set one yourself? Finally only a single consonant and the consistent majuscule separates the much-vaunted, supposedly innovative SaaS distribution model of the dangerous and also quite young virus disease SARS, which kept the world in breath at the beginning of the millennium. Just a coincidence? We don`t believe so, because once you get more involved with the background of the software rental concept, you will soon find out that those who benefit the most from it are usually not the consumers and users.
Who calculates the regular costs of rental software quickly realizes that the conditions for an appropriate cost-benefit ratio are difficult to achieve. Not even mentioning how quickly a business can face existential problems when you can not afford the rent anymore. The problem chain goes even further, because it is not unlikely that this software is absolutely necessary for the production.
A compromise is in sight – Leasing as a middle ground between purchase and rent
The MySolutions Group therefore offers you as an alternative to the classic purchase not a rental but a leasing model for all their products. The advantages:
1. Predictable costs
You spread the costs over the lifetime of your purchase and replace large upfront expenditures with lower monthly payments that can be adjusted to budget or revenue streams.
2. Taxes and accounting
Dependent on the contract structure and your business situation, the leasing has a positive effect on your tax burden.
The leasing offers a high degree of flexibility, for example through 100% financing without a down payment, the bundling of the entire costs in a single payment and through various end-of-lease options.
Last but not least: If you lease the software it belongs to you at the end of the term.
Do not make your investment decisions on the basis of presentations from dedicated sales people, but rely on the experience and know-how of the MySolutions Group. If you want to know more about our extensive leasing offer, please contact us simply and without obligation.
