Right to Repair has been a controversial issue in the tech world in recent years, which encourages users to seek repair options other than OEMs for their devices.

Technology is ubiquitous in society and considered by many almost as necessary for daily life as money. Even before the pandemic a digital transformation began to sweep over civilization, and now technology is required for many aspects of life. Some schools are 80% digital, and restaurants and other shopping establishments are going paperless via online ordering and concepts such as Apple Pay. With technology taking over, the pressure of keeping up with software updates and hardware upgrades, and quick turnaround rates for devices have also increased, which can become costly to maintain over time. For this reason and several others, many organizations often opt to lease equipment rather than purchase it.
