What are the benefits of software finance?

IT UK economy

Software is a vital part of every firm’s professional arsenal; the right software can increase efficiency across all business departments. Business intelligence software can help to identify new sales opportunities; HR software can automate the management of staff; and accounting software can handle payroll and help comply with legislation. In an ever-evolving tech landscape it is imperative for customers to obtain access to the software they need. Software finance is a smart cash alternative that offers a range of advantages. In this article, we’ll break down the benefits that leasing software can provide to you and your customers.

WHat is Software Finance?

Upgrading to a more sophisticated software system often means that businesses will be met with large upfront costs. Putting off such purchases can have a detrimental impact on business growth and profit margins. However, when software is obtained on finance, it enables customers to spread the cost of software acquisitions over the software license period. In simple terms, as the lessor, we pay for the initial cost of the software license. This enables the customer to use the software and repay the lessor by way of monthly or quarterly rental payments for a predefined period.

What are the Benefits Of Leasing?

Over time, software can become outdated as technology continues to advance rapidly.  Financing software enables your customers access to the latest software applications to accelerate digital transformation and maximise operational efficiencies. It offers business customers scalability, irrespective of their size through the ability to acquire additional software licences for a fixed monthly budget, allowing enterprises to stay ahead of the competition without a massive capital spend. With leasing, it’s easy to manage upgrades when your IT systems become obsolete. There’s no need for expensive maintenance costs or downtime due to breakdowns.
