Single Source School Leasing
You can include all of your school computer equipment, hardware, software, peripherals, networking, & cabling in a single lease, with a single payment over whatever term works for your school district. Whether it’s for a single computer lab, a one-to-one “computers for students” program or the whole district.
It’s a fact. School computer municipal leasing is your district’s lowest-cost source of non-debt financing. Our lease-to-own programs are designed specifically for schools. Grade schools to graduate schools. Two dozen Apple Macs for the computer lab or 5,000 Google chrome books for every desk in the district. Roll-out significantly more upgraded technology at the same time because the cost of hardware, software & accessories is spread over multiple budget periods. How much will it cost?
Skip the pay-for-it-all-in-advance budget trap this year. It’s a tough fiscal model to get tangled up in. Our programs are “Pay as You Go,” and schools tell us that it just makes sense.
“Tech Refresh” – What’s The Real Deal? (It’s Magic!)
Tech refresh leasing–keeping your school’s computer technology up-to-date; it’s a great idea! It’s the so-called “tech refresh” leases we are skeptical about. READ the fine print on the “end-of-lease” options on any “tech refresh” lease. Ask questions. Unfortunately, the old saw about “no free lunch” applies here as well. That “obsolete” IT equipment that is too old for your school is too old for just about anyone else’s school too. In most cases, the old equipment is barely “worth” the cost of shipping it back (which is your financial responsibility along with uninstalling it, wiping the drives, packing it all up and the freight charges to “who knows where….” ) It’s all buried in the numbers–the valuation of the old equipment, the pricing on the new equipment, the interest rates on the next lease–all of which make up for the manufacturer’s net loss on the equipment they are taking back from your school. (What is that interest rate anyway?)
Any way the manufacturer prices the new “refreshed” equipment, it is very unlikely it will be as low as your school could obtain if you were to competitively shop it from scratch. (And don’t even think about “upgrading” to another manufacturer’s equipment as part of the refreshed lease–forget it! You are locked into the same vendor) Also, because the manufacturer’s “tech refresh” programs are often based on commercial interest rates rather than the extremely low tax-exempt municipal lease for the same equipment, you’re paying more too. That “magical” free lunch may not look like such a tasty deal after you wade through the fine print.
