Although computer equipment appears as an asset on the balance sheet, computers are in fact liabilities ! They need to be fixed when they break down, carted when you move office, and thrown out when they become obsolete. Manage capital costs by saying ‘no’. Delay purchases of computer equipment, and prefer leasing over purchase- it makes sense in a recession.
In these difficult economic times businesses should be building cash at bank, and reinvesting these cash reserves to buy people , create ideas and marketing the business. Skip the expensive gadgets and furniture. Concentrate on what you know best and leave the IT to HardSoft Computers. Leasing a computer, whether an Apple Mac , a PC or a HP Server is no different than a mobile phone contract. You get a high value item that you rent per month.
