GreatAmerica Financial Services Datto as a Service
Datto as a Service from Cedar Rapids, Iowa-based GreatAmerica Financial Services is aimed at helping MSPs build a low-risk and cash-flow-positive as-a-service offering. The program, introduced in February, lets MSPs purchase Datto devices and cloud storage on a three-year monthly payment plan. The MSP pays GreatAmerica monthly for the devices and cloud storage. The MSP then marks up the monthly cost, deploys the devices into their customers’ locations, and collects a monthly fee as part of their managed services.
GreatAmerica also has options to finance as-a-service programs via a hardware-as-a-rental program.
