This necessitates regular updates and replacements so that the equipment is always up to date. With a sustainable approach throughout the lifecycle, and focus on an economical and easy way of upgrading your IT platform, your business will save both money and the environment in the long run.

We offer a complete solution all the way, from financing new equipment to the return when it reaches end of life.

We configure, install and prepare the required equipment before delivery, so that it is ready for use. In order for you as a customer to experience the lowest possible downtime, we offer excellent support and service agreements throughout the whole period. Such a life cycle solution follows up and supports the upgrade plan and is very financially beneficial for you.
Outdated IT equipment is handled in our technology and service centre. We collect the old equipment, erase all data, test it, clean it and give it a new lifecycle. Equipment not suitable for resale is recycled in an environmentally friendly and safe way, and the result of this environmentally friendly handling can be used in your environmental report. Your company will always have full control of what equipment you have installed, where it is located and the costs throughout the lifecycle using our web-based technology management system TESMA.
Among many good statements signed by the American oil affair Jean Paul Getty, we find this: "You shall own objects that increases in value and lease what decrease in value”. Leasing IT equipment is a good alternative to using cash or other equity when purchasing new machines.
