Unlock Growth with Assets as a Service

Over 35 years of service to Australian and New Zealand business we’ve learned just how important the right equipment finance solution can be to propel enterprises to the next level. We take the view that your vision powered by our capital can transform your aspirations into accomplishments.

Recently we have witnessed a significant shift among our clients towards embracing operating leases that embody the essence of "Assets as a Service" (AaaS). This adjustment in thinking considers how equipment finance can be integrated into a comprehensive lifecycle management system.

Beyond mere ownership, the AaaS approach encompasses a spectrum of services – from equipment delivery, professional installation, and regular upgrades to comprehensive servicing, responsible removal, and sustainable repurposing of equipment to minimise environmental impact. This 'breathable' usage model liberates businesses from the rigidity of fixed asset ownership, fostering an agile provisioning framework that nurtures growth.

In spirit, the AaaS model seeks to provide benefits that have similarity to subscription-based models, charging a predictable fee at regular intervals. This structure grants all the advantages of ownership while alleviating the burden of managing the extensive requirements of the service, ensuring uninterrupted access. Importantly, it obviates the need to purchase a high-ticket item outright to establish operations, enabling businesses to preserve capital for other critical needs. While subject to a committed period over the initial term there is no onerous deposit required or volatility in the rate, the pricing remains fixed for the term.

Notably, at Maia Financial, we operate as an agnostic financier. This means that you retain the autonomy to select the precise equipment you need, down to the make and model and design the added services to fit your precise specification. Our role is to provide the capital that aligns seamlessly with your operational requirements, offering the flexibility to adapt to changing needs and technological advancements without the burden of large capital expenditure.

Whether your goals involve expanding operations, upgrading technology infrastructure, or investing in specialised equipment, we can assist you to apply the principles of "Assets as a Service" to elevate your business to new heights.
