Pay-As-You-Go – A less risky way to connect your staff to your customers.

Our customers tell us what is happening with their organizations.

For some healthcare customers, they are flooded with calls that are overtaking their ability to handle them all. For others, they are in the process of downsizing their workforces and looking for ways to save money to keep their business going through the pandemic.

Pay-as-You-Go pricing models can assist all types of organizations achieve their goals, using a cost model that fits with their budgets and expectations of the marketplace. We’re seeing unprecedented numbers of businesses ask BrantTel to assist with their ability to stay connected, and we’re responding with our toolbox of solutions. Pay-As-You-Go is the one area that seems to have less of a following, mostly because in our experience, it’s not a traditional model of purchasing and that alone makes it a touch aloof.

One time purchases of licenses and equipment has been common over decades, and we experience this in our personal lives as well. A great post by a BrantTel author about “Buy the house or rent the apartment?” is sure to spark some debate. We’ve all invested in a major appliance and did not want to take the ‘lease’ option, because we knew it would cost more in the end. If you could pay for your car only when you drove it, would that make sense today?
