Process improvement methodologies such as lean process management have targeted waste as a way to bolster bottom lines for years. One way to reduce waste in your organization is through proper asset management of your technology equipment, which recovers and manages resources in a way that supports revenue and production.
EquipNet’s IT Asset Recovery Management System (ARMSTM) and our project teams help you manage technology assets consistently to create savings and production wins.
Reuse and Recycle Resources
Technology asset recovery lets you manage electronic resources such as computers or telecom equipment and allows you to identify, track, locate and even view the certification for environmental recycling and/or hard drive sanitizing of all IT assets. Companies in the pharmaceutical, biotech, telecommunications and financial services industries use IT ARMS to understand and track their IT assets.
Maintain Resources for Proper Production
Technology asset recovery management involves understanding the state of all technology assets in the organization, including documentation of hard drive sanitizing, remarketing and environmental recycling. Keeping track of maintenance and other documents can be tedious, which is why good technology asset management software is a boon to organizations that are equipment-driven.
Remove Resources that Are No Longer Useful
Recycling technology assets through your organization lets you optimize the value of each piece of equipment, but physical assets usually become obsolete for organizations at some point. Technology asset management software and services let you identify unnecessary equipment as soon as possible, which lets you remove the resources so they don’t take up space, hinder workflow, or cause confusion. Removing unnecessary assets might even be a critical requirement for safety in your organization.
Sell Used Resources to Fund New Purchases
When you identify technology assets for removal as soon as they are unnecessary to your process, you increase your chance of commanding strong resell value. Equipment that isn’t useful in your workflow can still be useful to someone else, especially if it hasn’t been sitting in a storeroom for years.
For many organizations, it’s difficult to attend to technology asset management on a daily basis because customer service, production and employee-facing issues demand so much attention. Outsourcing technology asset management lets you realize the production and revenue benefits above without taking away from time spent on other functions. Our IT ARMSTM software is run by an experienced project management team that takes some of the burden from your team and guides you to achieve productive technology asset management.
