Welcome to a different, simpler and betterway to finance and manage equipment.

Quadrent is a proud supporter of the Education sector, partnering with schools and universities for their equipment finance and asset management needs. We are Australasia’s most trusted Equipment Financier operating for over 18 years.

Quadrent enables education clients to acquire the latest technology and equipment for teachers and students. This ensures our customers are always able to access the latest technology cost-effectively and spread the payment over time in line with the useful life.

Not only can asset leasing help your organisation ensure it has the best technology infrastructure available, but it also ensures your students, faculty and other important stakeholders have the best experience possible when they interact with you.

In COVID-19 times, Quadrent also enables customers to preserve critical cash and avoid large upfront Capex payments. You can then invest capital into core business priorities such as wages and building renovations.

Why Quadrent is uniquely suited to Education.

We deliver flexible, simpler, and better ways for schools to acquire the latest technology competitively.

Unlike a bank or traditional finance broker Quadrent takes a residual investment in the equipment it leases, which helps lower the leasing payments for the customer. We also don’t require upfront deposits, charge monthly fees and or insist on a balloon payment at the end of the lease.

End of term flexibility, options and transparency

At Quadrent there are no surprises at the end of term – we maintain a regular dialogue with you throughout the lease period to help you decide what best suits when it comes to keeping, handing back, or refreshing the equipment.

Should you wish to return the equipment Quadrent adopts a pragmatic approach, operating a like-for-like returns policy with no charges for reasonable wear and tear or missing peripherals.

How are we different?

We help protect your school from technology obsolescence

Having the latest technology is paramount to providing the very best learning environment.

Through a lease arrangement we ensure you can upgrade the technology as you need to; either during or before the end of the initial term.

Increased Administrative control and Asset Management

By leveraging our Asset management and IFRS 16 Compliance system – LOIS – you’re able to have full control of all assets leased and meet compliance obligations of the IFRS 16 accounting standard.

Quadrent has also entered into a new partnership with IRIS and their IRIS Financials products uniquely suited for the education sector.

Line of credit

By partnering with Quadrent, we are able to put in place a sufficient line of credit for 12 months that can be utilised any time you wish for equipment you need throughout the year. Quadrent is asset agnostic in the equipment that we finance – so the credit facility can encompass a broad range of requirements.

Assistance at end of term

We understand that dealing with legacy environments can be tedious and time consuming – Quadrent can manage this process for you whilst maintaining your security and environmental obligations. Furthermore, any costs associated with disposal or decommission can be bundled into a new refresh.

Accessing locked up capital

We are truly committed to help schools in times of need, such as in the current COVID-19 environment. Schools are looking to access unused capital currently locked up in assets purchased with Capex.

At Quadrent, we can buy back old equipment, release the funds to you and subsequently lease the same equipment back over a time that suits your use.

Supporting schools with worthwhile initiatives

We strongly believe in giving back to the community and as such are always willing to consider helping the community and charitable programs you are involved with.

As a Christian Education National member school, Rehoboth’s distinct purpose is “to lead students to think and live for the Glory of God in every way”. With this responsibility in mind, the Senior Leadership Team make very careful decisions about suppliers. In 2019, we engaged Quadrent to finance laptops for our students and found them to be a trustworthy and value-adding partner. Quadrent listened to what we needed and were proactive in communicating with us. The Quadrent team is made up of real people who did what they said they would, which allowed us to focus on other critical aspects of College life at our busiest period leading up to year-end."
