What we do
Softcat’s Hardware Lifecycle Solutions offer a flexible and bespoke service to efficiently manage the life of your organisation’s hardware infrastructure. Our services cover hardware management, as well as logistics; we offer secure stock storage and will configure your hardware before installing and deploying it, as required. At the end of its usable life, we’ll come and decommission the hardware for you, removing it from site and replacing it with new. Our buyback service means that you can recognise the remaining value in your old assets and we take care of securely destroying, recycling and disposing of old stock for you.
We start by working with you to assess your current estate and refresh requirements, valuing the estate and identifying unused hardware, and potential savings. New stock is then held securely in our warehouse before we configure and deploy it for you. We provide a buyback service for old equipment, which we will take back, securely destroy, and fully recycle. Surplus stock is stored in our warehouse, securely, on an ongoing basis. These services can be taken individually, or in any combination, to help support the management of hardware so you see the best performance and return on your assets, as well as an extremely efficient, and effective, service.
Whether you want to pick and choose the services you require, or take the full logistic and lifecycle service, it’s the same person you’ll speak to throughout, to make life easier for you.
The partners and staff we use are fully accredited, cleared and vetted to ensure the security of your organisation’s data is not compromised, in line with the GDPR. We only offer certified data destruction to the correct standard and have a full ISO accredited service.
When destroying electrical equipment, all the electrical waste is broken down into separate waste streams and recycled. No recycled waste goes to landfill.
Alongside traditional imaging offerings, we can utilise Windows AutoPilot to improve efficiencies and save the costs associated with device imaging and management.
1. Secure storage (you can access your stock 24 hours a day)
2. Configuration (we'll make sure your hardware is set up and business ready)
3. Deployment (we'll discard the old device and install a new one, with no break in service, making it efficient and cost effective)
4. Data destruction (We ensure your hardware is securely destroyed, onsite or offsite)
5. Recycling and redeployment (Nothing's wasted, we buy back and resell component parts, or redeploy hardware within your organisation)
6. Disposal (We fully adhere to the WEEE regulations for safe disposal of electricals)
Offering a simple, single point of contact for a range of hardware lifecycle and logistics management services, our solution is as flexible, and adaptable, as you need it to be. Not only do we deal with the destruction and recycling of old hardware, but we get you set up with installing and configuring the new hardware so you can continue to focus on your business priorities with no break in service.
We also deal with redeploying existing hardware, so any unused items can remain with us securely in your stock, erased, cleaned and ready to be re-deployed. Our solution is vendor neutral, we will always put your business objectives and budget first and deliver a service aligned to your priorities, offering a transparent timeline and simple, effective communication.
