IT equipment refurbishmentIT equipment refurbishment not only delivers benefits to your IT department, but to your business as a whole. Take a look at these brilliant ways your business can benefit:

  1. Save money – achieve up to 90% cost savings with refurbished equipment
  2. Make equipment last longer – extend the life of your older kit rather than buying new
  3. Escape OEM upgrade mandates – third-party support and warranties on refurbished equipment mean you don’t have to follow OEM mandates
  4. Consolidate support – bring support for all your equipment, new and refurbished, under one contract, with one invoice and one renewal date
  5. Invest at the right time for you – plan your budgets and capital expenditure to suit your business, not your manufacturer
  6. Choose technologies that will benefit you most – only invest in technologies that can really deliver added benefits to your business
  7. Support newer equipment – redeploy refurbished equipment anywhere in your network to support newer kit.
  8. Scale for less – new orchestration technologies communicate across all devices, old and new meaning scale can be achieved using your legacy kit, without any loss of productivity.
  9. Prepare equipment for resale – refurbished equipment is wiped of any sensitive data and can therefore be sold on to subsidise the cost of any new IT ventures
  10. Improve inventory management – Clear your stock room of old surplus kit, ensuring your full inventory is tracked and utilised or traded in
  11. Upgrade to latest software versions – older kit can be reconfigured with newer software versions to boost performance in your system
  12. Restore to manufacturer standards – remove old configurations restoring the kit back to manufacturer standards ready for resale or redeployment
  13. Erase data securely – securely remove sensitive data so kit can be sold or reused without concern
  14. Extend your warranty – refurbished equipment often comes with a new 1 year warranty so you can be sure your estate is covered
  15. Save on support costs – Third-party support on refurbished kit is considerably cheaper than OEM support on new kit
  16. Maintain equipment value for longer – refurbished equipment retains its value for longer so you can still trade it in later down the line
  17. Increase uptime – refurbished equipment is fully tested meaning it offers greater reliability
  18. Ensure environmental responsibility – using equipment for the full duration of its life is far more environmentally-friendly than disposal and buying new.
