The Smart Way to Pay for Your Technology Solutions
A CONVENIENT MONTHLY PAYMENT OPTION TO PROCURE YOUR TECHNOLOGY WITH ADDED PROTECTION, FLEXIBILITY, AND CONTROL.
WHAT IS C3 SHIELD?
C3 Shield is a way to pay for your solution that is offered exclusively through C3 Communications. This is an agreement that bundles your solution and support services into a convenient subscription-based monthly payment option.
“Technology-as-a-Service” is becoming the preferred way to pay for technology and bundled services. Allowing you to use Operating Expense (OPEX) money versus Capital Expense money (CAPEX), you can predictably budget for technology expenses using PRE-TAX Dollars instead of POST-TAX Dollars. C3 Shield allows you to stay at the forefront of technology so you can remain competitive and prevent obsolete technology from creating a bottleneck in your growth opportunities.
Key Features of Shield/TEaaS
1.SOLUTION REPLACEMENT GUARANTEE (SRG)
SRG is protection from being locked into a technology that no longer serves your needs. If your solution lacks the ability to meet the needs of your business or has become obsolete for any reason, you have the option to upgrade to state-of-the-art technology at any point during the term. Your existing contract will be completely forgiven without penalty fees or rolling over balances.
2.ACT OF GOD COVERAGE
Protect your technology in the event of a natural disaster. Under the C3 Shield program, we pay your insurance deductible if your equipment is damaged by any natural disaster; lightning, tornado, fire, etc.
3.BUNDLED SUPPORT & MAINTENANCE
Always have protection. Lock-in the cost of our maintenance or support service agreement at today’s labor rates for the duration of your contract term. The monthly cost will be bundled without finance charges into the same payment as your equipment.
Shield is an as-a-service payment program for organizations that do not want to own their technology solutions, but rather want the benefit in usage and access of the solution. Shield allows you to preserve cash flow so you can use your capital for revenue-generating business activities. And, when considering the time value of money, Shield is often the lowest cost method of procurement.
5.MULTIPLE END OF TERM OPTIONS
Evaluate your needs and usage of the technology at the end of your term. A lot can change in 3-5 years. You may need to upgrade or renew with the SRG, or you may just want to return the equipment. You will have options that you can decide on when that time comes.
