What Is Hardware as a Rental® (HaaR®)?

Hardware as a Rental, or HaaR, combines the best attributes of Hardware as a Service (HaaS) and equipment financing. HaaR gives the customer a one-invoice solution for all hardware, software, installation and services. However, it does NOT require the solution provider to take financial risks associated with HaaS.





The one-of-a-kind combination of HaaS and Financing to bring you the best benefits of both.

How HaaR Works

Just like other As-A-Service models, you offer your client a single monthly payment. With HaaR, you get paid upfront for the project, and we send you the recurring charges monthly when the customer makes their payment.

Benefits for Your Customers

Up-to-Speed Technology

Technology is evolving at an accelerated rate. A predictable budget lets them upgrade to stay up-to-speed with technology's pace.

Control IT Costs

A predictable monthly cost is easy to budget for without surprise spending. Understand future technology costs and plan ahead accordingly to scale your service with their growth.

Maximize Efficiency

Proactive support means most problems are fixed before they happen. Even when one does happen, there's less downtime for better peace of mind.

Free Up Cash

Use capital for revenue generating activity rather than big spends on IT equipment. This lets them make the most out of their capex dollars.

We have been able to improve our clients' technology environment when they did not think they had it in the budget to refresh.

Tasha Hepburn Tasha Hepburn
Operations Director, Solid Networks Inc.

Prior to GreatAmerica, we self-financed up-front project labor and hardware and built it into the service contract. GreatAmerica allows us to offer the same outcome to our clients but with much better margin, and with immediate cash flow.

Josh Oakes Josh Oakes
Executive, NENS

GreatAmerica gives our customers an alternative to acquire our products and services without a large CapEx expenditure. Instead, they get the preferred monthly payment, because it is easier to budget.
