Project description

In the past, the company used to purchase its hardware and software. “However, due to strong growth, we no longer had the resources to deal with outdated IT equipment,” says Miodrag Nussbaumer, Head of IT. “What’s more, investment cycles for cost-intensive IT were getting ever shorter so it was no longer worth buying the equipment.”

The first step was listing the requirements of the company and jointly analyzing what equipment was necessary. For regular updating of its IT equipment, Demmel AG required a flexible leasing partner able to fully implement the demands of an expanding industrial group. We worked closely with our client to develop a framework agreement that provides for regular replacement of the IT. Furthermore, we settled on quarterly leasing certificates for a flexible expansion of the hardware and software licenses. That means Demmel AG always gets the latest technology so it can immediately benefit from innovations and take advantage of easy replacement of old equipment. Meanwhile, due to the smooth, uncomplicated processes between us, our business relationship has progressively deepened.
