AV as a Service (AVaaS)
The Smart Way to Pay for Audiovisual Technology Solutions or a convenient monthly payment option to procure your security solutions with added protection, flexibility, and control.
What is AVaaS
AVaaS is a way to pay for your solution that is offered exclusively through Vizual Symphony. This is an agreement that bundles your solution and support services into a convenient monthly payment option. AVaaS provides organizations with more freedom, control, and the ability to stay at the forefront of technology. AVaaS is considered an operating expense (opex) which is becoming the preferred way to pay for technology versus the known capital expense (capex) payment options such as traditional leasing and cash purchases.
Key Features of AVaaS
1. Solution Replacement Guarantee (SRG)
SRG is protection from being locked into technology that no longer serves your needs. If your solution lacks the ability to meet the needs of your business you have the option to upgrade to a brand new solution at any point during the term. Your existing contract will be completely forgiven without penalty fees or rolling over balances.
2. Natural Disaster Coverage
Protect your technology in the event of a natural disaster. Under the agreement, we pay your insurance deductible, up to $5,000, if your equipment is damaged by any natural disaster; lightning, tornado, fire, etc.
3. Bundled Support & Maintenance
Always have protection. Lock-in the cost of our maintenance or support service agreement at today’s labor rates for the duration of your contract term. The monthly cost will be bundled without finance charges into the same payment as your equipment.
4. Accounting & Balance Sheet Perks
AVaaS is an operating expense, which is becoming more ideal for businesses. It can be the least expensive based on the time value of money. There are little upfront costs. You free up cash flow to drive your growth. Protect credit lines. (Please consult with a trusted accountant on these benefits)
5. Multiple End of Term Options
Evaluate your needs and usage of the technology at the end of your term. A lot can change in 3-5 years. You may need to upgrade, or renew with the SRG, or you may just want to return the equipment. You will have options that you can decide on at that time.
Is AVaaS The Right Choice for You
The way we buy technology has changed. AVaaS provides peace of mind to grow and evolve your technology as you grow and evolve. This kind of flexibility is ideal for remaining competitive. However, owning technology prevents you from being agile in the market because it lacks that flexibility and can bottleneck your growth. If you are less concerned with ownership and need to focus on outcomes, access, and usage of the technology, AVaaS is the better way to pay for your technology.
