Word cloud explaining what makes up the HardSoft Difference

Why is leasing from HardSoft so different from any of the other leasing companies you could choose? We’re really not just a leasing company, nor are we simply a supplier, what HardSoft really is is a fully integrated solution. We care about our customers and the experience they have with us, we listen to our customers and try to develop new offerings that fit with what they’re looking for to help them grow their tech as fast as their business does.

The biggest HardSoft Difference is our Co-Founders

HardSoft started back in 1984 with brothers and Co-Founders, Philip and Andrew Morgan custom building PCs for the customers of their mail order games business – having created the Dragon 32 computer game ‘Movie Producer’ in 1983. Phil and Andrew had a chance meeting with a local car leasing company and decided that leasing was the way forward for computers. More than 35 years later, and with more than 5,000 customers, many having been with us from the beginning as they started out, we must be doing something right!
