Keeping track of both hardware and software assets and making sense of the myriad of complex license rules and agreements can easily become an unwelcome distraction.
Our view is that organisations should manage their IT assets with the same financial stewardship that they apply to other assets in their business. IT departments should be able to focus on putting IT to work and add value rather than creating and deciphering asset inventories.
That’s where we can step in. We help manage both hardware and software assets throughout their lifecycle to support strategic IT decision making and:
- Increase return on assets: extend asset life, reduce the need for capital expenditures
- Track and monitor asset costs by location
- Understand full asset costs
- Implement proactive maintenance practices across all asset types
- Decrease unplanned downtime
- Increase productivity
- Improve asset related decision making
Our rigorous discovery processes will identify and inventory assets and then determine lifecycle stage and advise any next steps. In the case of software, licensing will be evaluated to work out under or over licensing irregularities which we’ll then address. Often our customers are surprised to find that they’re still paying for maintenance agreements, assets or licenses that they no longer use.
We’ll also put robust processes in place for future technology take on so you know exactly where you are at all times.
If you'd rather get on with delivering technology to meet the needs of the business, we can manage your software and hardware assets for you from our Network Operations Centre, providing you with regular reports and the information you need to maximise those assets.
