HaaS Super Webinar Announced

Mark Your Calendars!

We're putting on a HaaS Super Webinar - January 13th at 11 AM Pacific/2 PM Eastern.

Here's a bit of background.

KPEnterprises (Sacramento's Premier Microsoft Small Business Specialist) offers Hardware as a Service (HaaS). Awhile back I wrote a white paper and starter kit for HaaS. That white paper explains how we offer HaaS, structure it, and finance it ourselves.

In my humble opinion, that white paper will give you a great introduction to HaaS, whether you want to finance it yourself or let someone else handle the financing.

Two prominent companies will help you with the money side of things. Basically, they help structure an agreement with your client so that the monthly payment is divided between a hardware "lease" portion and a service portion. Of course they get a piece of the action.

These companies are MSP on Demand and CharTec.

Each has a slightly different approach.

Since I originally wrote the HaaS Starter Kit, there have been a number of questions. The most important questions are:

- How do you license software for these machines?

- How do you finance these machines?

To a lesser degree, there are questions about Microsoft Financing, warranty coverage, and what to do at the end of the lease.

So we've decided to get together and give you a HUGE bunch of free information. Here's what we have planned:

- 90 minutes.

- Karl will introduce the basics

- Ramsey Dellinger from MSP on Demand will present their approach

- Alex Rogers from CharTec will present their approach

- A round-robin discussion

- Questions and Answers

Ramsey and Alex are preparing some information to distribute to anyone who is interested. If you purchased my HaaS starter kit, I'll send you the information kit by email when it's ready. If you haven't purchased it, we'll send a copy to everyone who registers for the webinar.

There's no cost for any of this. We just happen to be in a unique position of providing a huge amount of information.

Having said that, it's obvious that these folks would like to earn your business.

At the same time, we all believe that there is a huge opportunity in Hardware as a Service. In our company, for example, we consider HaaS to be the next step beyond Platinum level managed service.

Come and learn.

Plan to join us January 13th at 11 AM.
