Being fully Apple Authorised, HardSoft are able to centrally register the Macs and iPads we lease to customers with Apple, which helps them with the management of their assets. Apple have recently relaunched their Device Enrolment Programme (DEP) as the new Apple Business Manager. This is, in essence, the enterprise version of Apple School Manager, which gives companies a web-based portal for IT managers to deploy and manage Apple devices across the workplace. Apple Business Manager lets you buy content and configure automatic device enrollment in your Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution.

What makes leasing from HardSoft so different from all the other leasing companies out there? We believe that it’s the holistic approach we take to our business, we care about our customers and the experience they have with us so we do our best to make sure that experience is a beneficial and helpful as possible. We also listen to our customers and try to develop new offerings that fit with what they’re looking for.
For example, we have recently launched our new HardSoft Creative Club. The Creative Club gives our customers access to a pool of kit for short-term hire. That’s the kit they need when they need it for short-term projects, for just £6 per week plus VAT. The kit in the pool has a daily points value and customers receive 350 points annually to use to hire the extra kit they need and at the time when they need it. All delivered and collected as part of their membership. It’s short-term computer hire that’s cheap and flexible, exactly what many of our customers have been asking for.

The 2018 Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) was hardly breathtaking; The introduction of the new O/S Mojave was lacklustre apart from everyone getting hyped over ‘Dark Mode’ (which is, in all fairness, gorgeous) the conference really lacked the usual ‘sparkle’ we have come to expect from Apple. No big hardware reveals was the first disappointment, especially with some product lines, that are still being sold, being in such a dire need of an update…
For as long as we’ve been trading, we’ve worked alongside startup businesses. In the current economic climate, it’s increasingly unusual but we actively encourage and support new and startup businesses. We do this by offering the same terms and conditions as established businesses, whether you started trading yesterday or ten years ago, or are a sole trader or a limited company.
Startups Grow and Mature
Over the years we have worked with some startups that have grown into thriving businesses and even household names. Back in their early days we helped a new business called Not on the High Street get set up with their technology and who can say they haven’t at least browsed their website for an unusual gift for a friend or loved one, in fact, most of us will have bought at least a couple of gifts from them.
