Advantage Technologies’ Journey to Implementing Hardware as a Service
Business Before an As-a-Service Model
Onboarding clients was tough. The equipment was so varied, calling for a great amount of manpower to onboard, install and troubleshoot each customer. We were fighting for a budget that customers simply didn’t have.
Business before GreatAmerica Financial Services
When we first started with this model, our biggest mistake was trying to go it alone. We didn’t have a roadmap or an experienced partner to help guide us and share perspective. Having GreatAmerica during this time would have accelerated the implementation for us. We would have shaved a year off of our adoption process and saved some costly mistakes.
Life with GreatAmerica and HaaS
We decided to productize our offering. It is not just another form of financing. We gave it a name and a brand, and built everything around implementing it as our go-to-market strategy. We’ve found it is easier to get a GreatAmerica HaaS deal done than it is for a customer to go to a bank and get financing. GreatAmerica helps make the sales process as frictionless as possible.
