Avoid Obsolete Technology
Charlestowne Digital’s Managed Network Solutions combined with our Hardware as a Rental (HaaR) program means you never have to put up with technology obsolescence. This is a cost-effective way for small or mid-sized businesses to work with state-of-the-art hardware without paying state-of-the-art up front prices every few years. Our complete solution includes hardware (servers, wireless access points, workstations, peripherals, printers, etc.) and software, with a standard support plan — all for an affordable, fixed monthly charge.
In our fast-paced technology world, owning and maintaining technology yourself is getting to be too expensive, cumbersome and difficult. It can be done, but as technology changes, mutates and evolves every year, keeping up gets harder and harder.

Here are the top 5 reasons you should consider our Managed IT Solution to keep your business current, relevant, secure and financially stable:
Control Your Costs
With our HaaR model, your organization doesn’t have to spend a any money upfront for hardware upgrades or to introduce new technology. In other words, it converts a large capital expense into a more manageable operating expense. As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you know that a fixed monthly cost makes budgeting easier.
In addition, HaaR removes the unpredictability that comes with having to do maintenance and upgrades yourself. Charlestowne Digital will act as your vCIO to help you strategize to reach your technology goals and will deliver a proactive service plan to keep your hardware, network and systems current and secure.
Stay Cutting Edge
Are you familiar with Moore’s Law? It’s more like an observation made a long time ago that CPU technology was doubling in power every two years. That means that your printers, tablets, laptops and desktops from a few years ago are half as powerful as the current generation of technology. The HaaR program offered by Charlestowne Digital is the only shortcut you can take to stay current with state-of-the-art technology specific to your industry and business.
Charlestowne Digital’s HaaR program can include multifunction printers and copiers, servers, computers, cameras, peripherals and more.
Your IT department will appreciate not having to spend all of their time keeping up with maintenance and updates on your systems and, instead, can spend more time on long-term projects to drive growth in your business.
Stay Out Of Trouble
It’s troubling when companies put off purchasing new hardware and upgrades because it’s not in the budget for that year. But even worse, they often put off maintenance or even important security upgrades because it’s not a business priority at that moment. With our comprehensive solution, equipment upgrades and service is included in the Service Level Agreement. You can stop worrying that a hacker will get into your systems or your equipment will fail right after a warranty expires. This is a proactive service model which means hardware failures, hack attacks or viruses are not catastrophic and are quickly remedied.
Build For The Future
Being able to scale is everything in today’s business world. As your business grows and changes, your technology needs to be able to keep up with spikes in demand or even changing business models. And if a negative trend affects your company and business contracts, you can even scale down with our HaaR solution and not be stuck owning unused machines. With our solutions, you can integrate any number of new devices, all depending on your needs.
Security is Essential
When is the last time you tested your firewall? How up-to-date are the software patches in your network devices? When it comes to IT hardware and security, most people plug in a device and forget about it. But network security often requires regular hardware and software updates if you hope to remain safe. As an organization changes and grows, a device that once kept you safe might become a liability as it tries to protect a network with more devices, remote workers or new offices.
Charlestowne Digital’s service plan includes up-to-date technology like a firewall, Wi-Fi access points, servers and more as part of our service offering. With our HaaR program, it’s easy to upgrade hardware when necessary for security reasons or as a component of your backup and disaster recovery plan.
