Funding for Education through ICT Leasing is Forecast to Grow
The recent cuts in public sector spending will have a considerable affect on the already stretched ITC infrastructure in Schools, Colleges and Universities. Head Teachers and Governors throughout the UK will be wrestling with the conundrum of how they can meet the ever growing demand for computers and IT equipment with the news that their capital expenditure programs have been pretty much wiped out.
But every cloud has a silver lining and in this case providers of computer leasing solutions are set to do well from the public sector turmoil. “We’ve already seen a significant increase in enquiries from schools and colleges planning to lease new equipment” said Mike Shaw, Director of Asset and Equipment Finance Company www.TeleLease.com. “The chancellor has been unbelievably tough on the capital spending plans of our learning institutions and as a result they have started to turn to leasing as a practical solution”.
“Leasing is perfect if you’re short of cash. Schools, Colleges and Universities can use it to spread the cost of equipment over up to five years, so the initial outlay is only a fraction of buying it outright”.
The equipment available on lease includes items for the classroom and auditorium such as Desk Top Computers, Laptops, Interactive Whiteboards, Projectors and Flat Screens. TeleLease also provides equipment for school infrastructure such as Servers and Network Solutions.
“We can see that this market has massive potential” added Mike. “We now offer maintenance and support services through our network of approved suppliers and can provide a truly industry leading service”
