We’ve been a customer of Hardsoft for a number of years. In 2016 we were scaling and keen to ensure that our team was using the best IT equipment, but the initial financial outlay would have been substantial for a small business like us. We met the team at Hardsoft at an event where they explained to us the benefits of leasing. The lack of upfront deposits and payments was appealing to us with cash flow being one of our most critical considerations. Our accountants also liked the fact that acquiring equipment in this way gave us consistency and evenness with finances as leasing allowed us to spread the cost of an asset over its useful life, so as the asset we’re using pays back to us, we’re paying out to purchase it nice and evenly.
