Traditionally, when a business needs to purchase hardware they do so via capital expenditure. The ‘as-a-Service’ market has made it possible for businesses to shift up-front investments to manageable costs using an operating expenditure model. While purchasing equipment by CapEx means the business owns the asset, it also means the owner is stuck managing the hardware, potentially losing out on new technologies or products that are more useful and better suited to their operational needs. In contrast, the ‘as-a-Service’ OpEx model offers more flexibility and options in pricing. While the business doesn’t own the hardware, they don’t have to worry about their asset becoming obsolete because they have access to upgrades without incurring additional costs.
All too often when a business goes to purchase communications equipment by CapEx, it is for their immediate needs and there is no consideration for future scaling or scheduled maintenance. The main objective for any business is to maintain steady growth, so when choosing equipment that will keep your team connected and your operations running smoothly, you need a solution that doesn’t put limits on your growth or unnecessary strain on your budget. Buying or renting new radios every time your business expands or changes won’t always be a viable option. The best solution will be flexible and cost-effective with the ability to adapt to your operational needs.
Most businesses are probably familiar with Software as a Service (SaaS), delivering software solutions that don’t burden the customer with managing the service or covering costly upgrades. Nova Communications has customized the SaaS model for two way radios, offering Radio as a Service (RaaS). This is a turnkey solution that scales with your business and provides ongoing management and 24/7 support for your mobile and portable two way radios.
