Cost of Using IT Infrastructure Support in India

Direct purchasing and renting/leasing are two ways of assigning IT assets to EOR employees in India. The cost differs significantly between the two services. A handful of EOR companies provide comprehensive IT infrastructure support, including direct purchasing and delivery devices to EOR employees. Whereas, some EOR companies lease or rent devices on behalf of EOR teams. Here are the insights of these two services:

Direct Purchasing

Purchasing new IT devices in India is easy and is readily available unless the equipment needs high-end configurations. Unless the devices don’t require specific arrangements or setups, local procurement is generally the right choice. The cost of hardware is easily available on different portals. If you expect a local support service provider to procure the equipment. Then, the service provider will charge handling and service fees over and above the equipment cost.  


The cost of leasing or renting devices is relatively cheaper than direct purchasing. In India, leasing IT devices would cost 1/10th of the new machine. Many EOR service providers prefer offering this type of service as renting devices comes under the revenue expense of the EOR companies. For technical issues, you can directly contact the company leasing devices and resolve the issues.
