Purchase, Lease and Hire Options
We understand that different organisations operate under different budget approaches and that purchasing equipment can be difficult at certain times within a budget year.
So we’ve come up with a flexible approach to help our customers fund the acquisition of new radio equipment. We provide a choice of options, all of which are operated directly by ourselves so there are no ‘middlemen’ to add cost or inflexibility.
Capital Purchase - This is the traditional approach of purchasing all of the equipment with an up-front payment that is accounted within the organisation’s capital budget. The equipment becomes the property of the purchaser once the initial payment has been made. This approach does not automatically include a support and maintenance service.
Lease Purchase - With lease purchase, instead of a single up-front payment for the equipment, the purchaser agrees to make a fixed monthly payment for an agreed length of time, typically either three or five years. From the organisation’s accounting perspective, the money is most often allocated from the expense budget rather than the capital budget. The equipment becomes the property of the purchaser at contract signature. This approach does not automatically include a support and maintenance service.
Managed Service (Long-Term Hire) - In this option, the purchaser agrees to make fixed monthly payments just like the Lease Purchase option, but the equipment never becomes their property. And because the equipment is owned by Resound throughout the term of this type of contract, a support and maintenance service is automatically included within the monthly payments. Depending upon the length of the contract agreement, Long-Term Hire may also include periodic equipment refreshes with no change in the monthly payment amounts.
Short-Term Hire - In addition, Resound does offer some equipment on Short-Term Hire for specific occasions/events. Please contact us with your requirements for a quotation.
