Organizations are moving towards OPEX solutions for IT investments. The reason is to get better control of operational expenses regarding daily management.
CAPEX - Capital expenditure, and refers to the expenses your business incurs in order to create benefits in the future. CAPEX investment is an upfront payment for a product, owned by the organization. For tax purposes, capex is a cost that cannot be deducted in the year in which it is paid or incurred and must be capitalized.
OPEX - Operational expenditure, refers to expenses a business incurs in its day to day operations. OPEX investments are often provided as services and the organization can deduct the cost monthly for tax purpose.
Often MSPs are providing their service with a pay-as-you-go model to their customers. With upfront payments to suppliers it might be a risk of a cash flow challenge, especially at growth. To compensate you might use financing to balance, which adds cost to your purchase in terms of interest.
Cristie helps you as an MSP by providing an on-premises service with OPEX to help you to be sure to generate profit at your services. This gives the company less financial risk and ensures you to be profitable.
Cristie also provide you a tool for billing automation to help you recognize all transactions and simplify the invoicing process to a few up to thousands of customers.
Enterprises tend to change their processes to provide services to different departments and application owners. To do so we see a growing demand to obtain an on-premises service instead of an investment and provide an operational cost (OPEX). By doing so, budgets will be simplified and easier to maintain. With Cristie Cloudportal included all cost will easily be tracked and all numbers for the service will be correct.
