  3. What is the monthly cost and what is included? Make sure you understand the total monthly cost and what is included in that cost. Are there any additional fees for installation, training, or upgrades?
  4. Is the equipment new or refurbished? Find out if the equipment is brand new or refurbished, and ask about any warranties or guarantees.
  5. What is the expected lifespan of the equipment? Ask about the expected lifespan of the equipment and whether it will meet your needs over the long term.
  6. What are the capabilities of the equipment? Make sure the equipment meets your specific needs and has the necessary features and capabilities for your business.
