Buy cheaply, use for a long time: Anyone who thinks this is the path to achieving an optimised cost structure is sorely mistaken. The same applies to IT infrastructures, industrial plant or medical equipment. On the one hand, operating and servicing costs increase disproportionately as assets get older, which is a headache for CIOs and COOs. On the other, CFOs are reluctant to gamble on future infrastructure costs.
A reliable way to calculate cost effectiveness over the entire duration of a project is TCO. This is the only way to decide whether it is more cost effective in the long term to buy the latest technology or to opt for a customised business concept with shorter usage cycles.
All vendors provide this information, of course – but from their own perspective. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, to compare offerings. Real-world benchmarks provide a robust basis of measurement. But only independent experts with decades of experience in financing every aspect of a project have access to these. Experts who understand that standard offerings rarely meet your company's individual requirements profile. Who sit on the same side of the negotiating table as you as they have the same objectives. Who will look at your overall costs, even for international projects, and find a suitable financing option for you. Who will protect your balance sheet and will take risks on your behalf.
