A start-up providing Cloud computing services had a need to demonstrate its capability to a potential client but couldn’t afford to invest many tens of thousands of pounds in the equipment to properly support the client’s needs thus had difficulty in securing the contract. They turned to Hire Intelligence and were looking to rent the equipment on a short term basis with a prospect of converting into a long term contract if the client could take the deal.

Hire Intelligence’s ability to respond rapidly to such enquiries when others cannot meant that the Cloud provider had the required servers and network storage in their datacentre up and running as soon as the end user made the decision to proceed with the trial, giving the impression that it had been there all along and enabling this start-up business to offer the same or better services than more established players.
