At Digital Generation, we believe that access to technology should be affordable. The high initial CAPEX investment is often a deterrent for most businesses and as a result, organisations are sweating their assets to save capital or reduce cash demands, but the support costs and failure rates that arise with this method are costlier.
Leasing is a viable solution to upgrade your IT assets whether you are cash rich or follow a conservative CAPEX model. It allows businesses to ride the crest of technology advances and maintain regular upgrades with no upfront costs and structured repayments during the useful life of the assets – eliminating the barrier to the high CAPEX investment.
Partnering with leading financial house Innovent, Digital Generation now offers clients a full ICT solution on a leasing model.
Financial benefits of leasing your IT
A record 53.6 million metric tonnes (Mt) of electronic waste was generated worldwide in 2019, up 21 per cent in just five years, according to the UN’s Global E-waste Monitor 2020. E-waste is now the world’s fastest-growing domestic waste stream, fuelled mainly by higher consumption rates of electric and electronic equipment, short life cycles, and few options for repair.
To curb these effects, the old ‘produce, use and discard’ linear approach is changing and we are starting to see organisations move to more sustainable circular economy practices to ‘produce, use, reuse and recycle’ equipment.
With our services, IT can move you closer to achieving your sustainability goals in three stages:
First life: We lease IT equipment to our clients in its first life with the hope of collecting those assets at the end of the lease.
Second life: Our reverse logistics process collects this equipment so it can be refurbished at our warehouse for a second life.
Third life: When it is time to dispose of the equipment, it is done in an ecologically and responsible manner with our IT Asset Disposal solution.
