Our Approach

Our proven IT asset lifecycle process allows us to successfully implement sustainable solutions to protect and maximize our clients IT assets.

Discovery Meeting

The first step in our process is to get to know you and your team. During our initial discovery meeting we meet directly with our clients to get a clear picture of their business and processes. Through in-depth internal controls audits, our goal is to know your business inside and out in order to deliver the best possible solutions, which is why we always work towards a long-term partnership with our clients.

With best in class service, and adhering to the highest compliance regulations, we work with you to put the best, most cost effective, platform in place. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, your specific business goals and processes require an IT asset lifecycle process that’s tailored to your needs.

Implementation

Imagine if all the reporting you need is in one place, with all the features you need to actively manage the lifecycle of your IT hardware assets. Our ITALM software integrates with Your current systems so that you have 24/7 access to all of your relevant data through our user-friendly platform. We’ll make sure you and your team understand what the data means, and how to leverage it to make stable business decisions.

Monitoring Value

It is our goal to support and maximize your company's return on its IT hardware investment. Our IT asset management solution ensures that you can get a high-level view of what your organization's systems are costing you. With this access, we can help you determine the best time to retire and refresh your legacy systems

Managing and strategically planning the lifecycle of your computers and other hardware ensures that your business is better able to consider your IT requirements, plan for capacity, and develop a clear IT buying budget based on real numbers — not estimates.

The process of IT lifecycle management (ITLM) provides your business with a complete map and purchasing plan for your IT equipment. Through clearly understanding the productivity, capacity, and place in it’s life your hardware and software is, you can then plan on making new purchases and factor that into your IT budget.

No more surprises.

 

Process of Hardware Lifecycle

 

The process of your hardware lifecycle typically consists of 5 steps, but at Trace Technologies, we also take care of that additional step once your hardware has been dispositioned.

  1. Procurement — purchasing
  2. Deployment — installation and configuration
  3. Maintenance — updates, patches
  4. Support — repairs and troubleshooting
  5. Disposition — removing a device from the IT infrastructure
  6. Destruction/Recycling — destroying or sanitizing data

Hardware and Computer Lifecycle Management


Properly planning your computer lifecycle management means that you know where everything, and can easily maintain and support your devices for a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and better reporting.

The hardware lifecycles are reliant on their use, therefore reports and maintenance are incredibly important to the overall computer lifecycle management process. An unused computer that isn’t maintained properly can actually end up costing a business more than a properly maintained, but frequently updated system.

Your software also requires inclusion in your lifecycle management as well, considering licenses have expiry dates. If you’re running a software program that expires, but is critical to your business operations, the business stoppage could ruin your reputation and productivity.

Understanding the reliability or your devices, when they’re going to expire, and calculating their value analysis through integration with I.V.A.N, our value analysis tracking network ensures that you can better budget and take advantage of asset remarketing.
