Hardware as a Service (HaaS) vs. Hardware as a Rental® (HaaR®) vs. Lease We like to say that the GreatAmerica Hardware as a Rental (or HaaR) solution combines the best attributes of Hardware as a Service (or HaaS) and leasing. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Solution Providers are able to present their clients with an all-inclusive monthly subscription payment, without hurting their cash flow. At its core, HaaR is an equipment rental agreement with HaaS-like features.

It is important to understand how the equipment we put into the field drives profitability, both within an MSP and for clients. In terms of clients, it is relatively simple. If we place the right equipment in the field, our clients will have less downtime and be able to focus on engaging in productive activities. In most cases, the savings from reduced downtime more than offsets the cost of the upgrades. In determining the benefits to the MSP it’s more layered. That said, the reduced amount of reactive work drives the benefits to both the MSP and the client.
