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