You ride the city bike to work, catch an Uber to the party, and stay the night at an Airbnb. Services are a part of our everyday life, but why do we still insist on owning our phones and computers?
Owning things means less to us now than ever before. We declutter with the Konmari method and lease out our cars. Companies are used to renting both business premises and personnel services. And yet, we still insist on owning our computers and phones, even when renting them is also possible. Here’s why it makes sense to rent.
It’s oh so simple
When employees are equipped with up-to-date tools, work becomes efficient and they don’t have to spend time battling glitchy devices. Renting computers, phones, and tablets is as easy as finding a cleaner for the office: The company and service provider simply sign a rental contract with a fixed monthly fee. When all devices at the office are upgraded at the same time, people don’t have to get them one by one.

Out with the old, in with the new
After the two-year contract ends, the devices are replaced with new ones. The aftermarket takes care of the old computers and phones, so they’re useful to the next user. This way you can upgrade the tools regularly without having the old electronics gathering dust in storage, so in addition to being ecological, it also saves you space. Outsourcing the cleaning of old hard drives to skilled professionals also reduces risks in information security.
Just as you like it
For employees, the best part about this rental service is that they can choose the exact device they want. You don’t have to follow the masses – rent that PC when everyone else is getting a Mac. If your employer can’t pay for the computer of your dreams, you can split the costs: the company pays its share and you take care of the rest.
Renting a device is cheaper
Need I say more? When you pay a fixed monthly fee, you get the best devices cheaper than if you were to buy them. Paying for a service also means that your money isn’t tied to a device that’s quickly outdated.
From a business point of view, it all boils down to what you want to focus on. Proper tools keep the workflow smooth and the employees happy, but are they worth spending a fortune? Renting the devices means no compromises. The service gets you up-to-date tools easily and ecologically. And the best part? It’ll save you money.
