“Is it a good time to upgrade my equipment?” Lots of business owners ask themselves—and maybe you—that question, but it’s often not the most helpful question to ask. The fact is, asking if it’s the right time to upgrade is like asking whether blue is the happiest color—it depends whom you ask. So a better question may be, “What will be the effect of an equipment upgrade?” Increased efficiency? New capabilities? Streamlined operations? All of the above? If you’re an equipment vendor, these benefits—and others like them—are what you’re really selling. And if new equipment can provide these benefits, it’s always a good time to upgrade, especially when flexible equipment and software leasing programs make it so easy and affordable.
