African Asset Finance Company (AAFC) has opened a subsidiary in Johannesburg to expand its ground-breaking EASE® (Equipment as a Service) Healthcare programme in Southern Africa, marking an important step in the geographic expansion of EASE® following its launch in Ghana and Nigeria last year.
EASE® South Africa will initially focus on providing healthcare facilities with advanced diagnostic and radiology equipment, including CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine. The team will leverage EASE®’s extensive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partner network to offer customers state-of-the-art equipment that their meets business needs.
Equipment-as-a-Service (EASE®) is an AAFC program that provides access to high quality equipment – including maintenance, training and support – to businesses and organisations across Africa, allowing them to pay for the use of the equipment with the cash flows generated by the equipment itself, addressing and reducing the need for capital investment in equipment, contributing to the circular economy and allowing customers to focus on total cost of ownership and quality rather than the initial cash outlay.
The opening of EASE® South Africa is a tremendous milestone for our healthcare practice and we see strong demand from rapidly growing medical facilities in Southern Africa seeking access to state-of-the-art equipment on flexible terms that allow them to expand their service portfolio without tapping into equity or debt,” said Kanyinsola Oyeyinka, VP of Healthcare at AAFC.
