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 when the time comes.
Service Shield by M3T is an as-a-service subscription payment program for organizations that desire the benefit of having access and use over the need to own technology that depreciates and can handcuff you to equipment that will rapidly become outdated.
Why Does As-A-Service Make the Most Sense in today’s world?
Ownership vs. Creating Favorable Economics
Security solutions start depreciating the day after installation. The costs are non-recoverable because after installation none of it can be returned.
Service Shield by M3T absorbs the non-recoverable costs by offering a as-a-service payment program. Everything is included in the monthly payment over a subscription service term of 36 or 60 months.
As-a-service is not intended to result in ownership, but rather provide you with access to or use of the technology while it is useful.
Embracing Rapid Advancement of Technology
Technology continues to change rapidly, for the better, with no sign of slowing down. Customers recognize the challenge of staying at the forefront of technology and having to continuously request higher budgets.
Service Shield by M3T promotes the use & access procurement method versus ownership. At any time during your service term, you will have the ability to upgrade if your needs change or the technology becomes obsolete, without major financial implications.
Insuring Essential Use Technology &
Operate with Peace of Mind
Security solutions protect your essential use assets including companies, employees, schools, children, intellectual property, confidential information, etc.
How can you NOT insure the technology that protects your assets with a complete service and maintenance plan beyond the warranty period? It’s too much of a risk not to.
Service Shield by M3T offers ongoing service agreements as part of the monthly subscription. This eliminates any additional service expenses throughout the term. You are also protected from the unforeseen expense should an Act of God situation occur.
If something malfunctions at any time throughout the term, with our support services, you are protected for the entire term.
Addressing COVID-19 Budget Pressures
We can’t NOT mention COVID-19 and the budget restraints it has placed on everyone. The continued economic uncertainty places a lot of pressure on organizations to preserve cash flow.
With Service Shield by M3T, you can address any budget pressures from COVID-19 and any other economic uncertainty. There is no significant, upfront expense. It is intended to be a service provided for a predictable, manageable, monthly payment.
As-a-service is an operating expense, not a capital expense.
