When the chips are down, RentWorks is here to help

The two-year global chip shortage is an ongoing crisis in which the demand for integrated circuits (known as semiconductor chips) exceeds the supply, affecting more than 169 industries. This worldwide problem, triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, has spread into a years-long disruption of all things electronic.

The bad news is that here’s still a long wait ahead. According to the Commodity Intelligence Quarterly (CIQ) report, the shortage of semiconductors could stretch into the first quarter of 2023. This, in turn, will greatly hamper the production of technology-dependent products. Unless you decide to let RentWorks help you through this frustrating time.

In today’s technological world, your IT equipment and infrastructure are the communication channels of your business. They are vital tools that ensure productivity and ultimate success.

Downtime not only affects your organisation’s bottom line but greatly impacts staff morale.

Hours lost are difficult to regain and losing staff due to inadequate business tools puts pressure on HR and the business as a whole. If you are feeling frustrated waiting for IT equipment to arrive, RentWorks can help through our short-term rental solutions.

With no upfront deposits, long-term contracts, or multi-year financing commitments, our short-term solutions solves the problem without putting severe pressure on your cashflow like purchasing equipment in the interim would. This solution will allow you to acquire the latest technology immediately and get your business back on track sooner rather than later.

Why short-term rentals make good business sense

Full-time flexibility

If your organisation only needs IT equipment for a selected time frame, such as until the chip shortage is resolved, it makes sense to rent on a short-term basis. Rent the technology you need for just one month or up to a year, with the low minimum requirement of 10 units. Our flexible month-to-month solutions assist in you being able to adapt to your ever-changing business landscape and keep up with the needs of your business and team efforts.

Your one-stop-shop

You can be assured of quality, well-maintained units from top-tier equipment vendors, such as Dell, Lenovo and HP. Maintenance is standard with our rapid 48-hour swap-out service and insurance coverage already included. On top of this, there is no charge for any breakage upfront – damages to equipment are only billed at the end of the term or when the unit is returned and does not form part of a deposit.

Complete control for your peace of mind

As a short-term renter, you have access to the RentWorks Enterprise Asset Management portal (REAM) to help you manage your rented stock. At an additional cost, you can access the value-add that gives you the ability to track and lock machines if lost or stolen, giving you complete peace of mind that your business information and equipment are in the right hands.

Saves you time and money

RentWorks customers enjoy free delivery within a 50 km radius of major South African metros, such as Johannesburg and Cape Town.

As a customer-centric business engineered to keep you at the heart of it all, we also believe the application process should be user-friendly. Our online portal allows you to apply for short-term assets at the click of a button – seamless and pain-free!
