IT Service Provider: Why Subscription-Based Makes Sense

By John Garza

Considering a move to an IT service provider? How about one that charges a monthly subscription fee that is based on the amount of services your company consumes?

In today’s age of business computing, more and more firms are becoming quite comfortable with the utility-based model so don’t let the old way of doing things sway you from taking part in this ever-growing “oh so convenient” way of purchasing technology for your business.

Gone are the days of buying expensive gear from your local managed services provider. No more long-term contracts to cover that expensive capital investment and no more having to set aside funds for pricey hardware changes every couple of years. Regardless of what you need, there is a provider out there ready and waiting with products to help your business thrive in today’s competitive, technology-driven environment.

You may not have even have noticed, but chances are that you may already be purchasing by subscription more than you think in your personal lives. For instance, you may get all of your music from a streaming service like Apple Music for $15 per month. You probably haven’t bought a CD in years. Or, when was the last time you purchased a DVD? Chances are you’ve signed up with Netflix or Amazon to watch all of your favorite movies. How about all of that expensive fitness equipment that is sitting in your workout room at the house? Doubtful, right? You most likely pay a monthly fee for a gym membership. When it comes to procuring an automobile, you might even lease a car instead of committing to buy one. The point that I am making is that there are really convenient ways to get things done when you partner with the right organization and it is no different with your IT acquisitions.

Benefits of Subscription-based Model

If that hasn’t got you thinking and you need a few more reasons on why you should consider purchasing via subscription, consider these things:
