Apple Business Leasing Explained

With Apple business leasing, companies gain access to the latest Apple devices with less upfront cost and fewer operational burdens.

Should I Lease Or Buy Apple Products?

Whether you decide to lease or buy Apple devices for your company, you will end up with some fantastic hardware that will serve your employees well.

However, leasing Apple hardware comes with some clear benefits for companies

  1. Support – When buying Apple devices, you have full responsibility for your new equipment. This includes managing the hardware when there are faults, learning to use the equipment, and disposing of it when it is no longer useful. This creates extra work for your business and productivity drops as your staff spend time managing these scenarios themselves. When you lease Apple hardware, your supplier can provide a package of extensive support. This can cover tech support, helping you understand how to use the new gear to its fullest, and recycling it for you when its use is complete. This helps your company save a lot of time and effort.

  2. Cost Spreading – Naturally, one of the biggest attractions to leasing computer equipment over buying is because of the cost. High-quality business-grade Apple products can be pricey, especially if you need to buy them in bulk. By choosing Apple business leasing instead, that cost is spread out into easily digestible and manageable monthly payments. As a result, your business has much better cashflow and can continue to invest in other projects.

  3. Less Obsoletion – While some lease structures help you work towards ownership, there are many different styles. Some leases have built-in upgrades, while others are more akin to temporarily renting the devices. In these scenarios, technology obsoletion is a thing of the past. Obsoletion is a big issue in the computer industry. As innovation moves so quickly, computers become obsolete relatively swiftly compared to several decades ago. This is a frustrating scenario when buying devices, especially considering that computer hardware is quite expensive. Normally, when you invest in a high-priced item, you expect it to last and remain useful for a long while. By leasing, you can ensure that you always have access to the most up-to-date technology.

  4. More Guidance – While many businesses focus on the cost spreading benefits of leasing, one of the major advantages is the additional guidance. If you select an Apple specialist as your lease provider, you will have far better advice on which devices will be right for you. Apple produces a huge range of products that all have different strengths. Some are more portable, more affordable, more energy efficient, and more powerful. A specialist in Apple business leasing can help you work out which devices will best serve your different employees while matching your budget.

Why Choose An Apple Office?

However, this isn’t the only reason that Apple is so popular in business. Apple technology is:

  • Highly energy efficient – Apple makes some of the most energy efficient devices. Their latest hardware has been outpacing competitors in terms of efficiency without sacrificing power and performance.

  • Greener – Since Apple is at the forefront of energy efficiency, your business isn’t simply saving money on the electric, and your employees are not only enjoying the freedom and portability of having to charge less. In addition to these fantastic benefits, more energy efficiency also translates to kinder to the environment.

  • Powerful – Apple has some truly powerful devices in their entourage that can easily keep up with the heavy demands of power-hungry industries.

That is because they are often making their own technology and multitasking many energy draining programmes. MacBooks are able to deliver this power while using less energy resources and tend to be faster than their competitors as well.
  • Cyber secure – Apple has had a remarkable reputation for cyber security for many years. Time and again studies have shown that Apple products are far less susceptible to hacking and there are far fewer viruses created for MacBooks. Additionally, software like Jamf Protect can ensure extra layers of security for the most targeted industries using Apple. This is why Apple business leasing is so popular among industries like FinTech which are frequently over targeted for data breaches because of the sensitive credentials that they handle.

  • M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max – While Apple was always well known for having high quality products that were powerful, green, and cyber secure, this has ballooned in significance recently. Apple tech has been making leaps and bounds with energy efficiency, power, and green credentials in the last couple of years thanks to their new M1 chips. Previously Apple had used Intel chips in their MacBooks, however, now they are back to making their own chip. The new M1 chips have proved revolutionary in the industry, particularly for speed.
