With an urban campus in central Philadelphia, the University of the Arts not only needed a solution to keep their technology current, but they also had to be sure that an adequate return process was part of the strategy. First American customized a sustainable technology lease and return program to keep them up to date with the ever-changing demands of their students and faculty, without having to sell or store the older, outdated equipment.

"A refresh cycle is, of course, a very critical aspect. If a student comes here, they need to know that we're prepared to teach technology, and teach it well."
