AV or AV Equipment As A Service

AV hardware and AV technology solutions is becoming a mission-critical technology need for most businesses today. However, for an organization to use large sums of capital to pay to own AV technology equipment is not the most economical business decision. With technology ever-evolving and advancing, along with the rate at which technology depreciates has caused a demand for access and use versus ownership procurement options. Learn about a subscription solution that will lift the burdens of having to own technology equipment. Introducing TAMCO Shield, an AV-as-a-Service (AVaaS) solution for your entire AV solution that provides customers with flexibility, control, and peace of mind in one low monthly payment.

Flexible End of Term Options

Shield allows customers to choose an end of term option that is right for them. A lot can change in 3-5 years. Decide what's best when the contract comes to an end, not upfront. Renew with the solution replacement guarantee, renew without it, return the equipment, upgrade to a new system, and more.

The Smart Way to Pay

Based on market indicators AV as a service payment models make the most logical sense for acquiring a depreciating asset, like AV hardware. The value lies in the USE rather than ownership of the equipment. Subscription or as a service payment models are everywhere for a reason. And Shield, when compared to other options, is the smartest way to pay both financially and technologically.

Use vs Ownership

AV and technology, in general, is a constantly evolving industry. With billions spent on R&D each year, the days of holding on to your technology solutions for 10-20 years is a dated concept and does more harm than good. With AV, it can hold you back from operating at the most efficient level. Also, technology equipment is something that will never gain value. It is a depreciating asset in a rapidly advancing industry. Therefore, owning technology is not an investment. Investments are intended to make you money. So what do you really end up owning? There is no bonus to owning old technology. This is why Shield, AV equipment as a service, came to market. It addresses the technical and financial burdens of traditional payment options so you can focus on operating not getting handcuffed to equipment.
