The BIG Questions I want to take advantage of the latest technology today, but how am I going to budget for this or pay for it? I have a limited IT budget, I would like to upgrade my equipment, but how am I going to get everything I want on my limited budget? The equipment is more expensive than I have budgeted for; therefore do I cut other IT expenses to acquire this equipment, or delay the acquisition until the funds are budgeted, or buy less than what I really need? My budget this year does not allow for any equipment upgrades, so how do I acquire the technology today and pay for it next year?

AFS Funding Solutions Create “Buying Power” EXAMPLE: Customer’s lease today is $8000 per month. No additional budgetary monies are available, however, customer wants to refresh their technology. How can this be done? Solution: The existing lease is collapsed and refinanced thus creating “buying power”. If the refinance payment equals $2500 per month, then the “buying power” would be $5500 per month or $183,000 over a new 3 year term. The payment stays the same at $8000 per month, the customer acquires $183,000 in new equipment.
AFS Funding Solutions Create “Buying Power” Example: Customer is currently paying networking charges of $9000 per month today. Customer would like to replace or upgrade their equipment to the latest technology, however the funds are not available. Solution: By improving or refreshing the technology and networking the telecommunications equipment, network charges may decrease dramatically. If network charges were to decrease to $2500 per month in this case, this creates buying power of $6500 per month or $367,000 of “buying power”. Cash outflow per month remains at $9000 per month ($2500 toward networking charges and $6500 to AFS to fund the new equipment).
