The Lifecycle of Your IT Assets

IT asset managementImagine having to spend a quarter of a billion dollars to upgrade your technology.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics doesn’t have to imagine. They’re doing it.

According to Computerworld, the ABS will spend $250 million over the next five years to replace its aging IT systems, some of which are 30 years old.

Chances are the technology at your workplace doesn’t go back to the 1980s. And it’s probably a good bet you’re not spending $50 million a year to make computer upgrades.

But the point is that you’re spending money when you replace your IT assets.

You could simply recycle your old equipment, but IT asset recovery and remarketing companies like CWI can go a few steps further, finding a way to reuse your technology in a responsible way while also giving you the best value for your old devices.

We use a proprietary asset tracking, configuration acquisition, and reporting system that can track your assets and make sure your important information stays secure.

When it comes time to resell your assets, CWI uses three different pricing models:

  • Direct purchase, in which we use current and historic market data to gauge the assets’ value, and then make deductions based on any defects we’ve found. This model is best suited for customers looking for a quicker sale.
  • Consignment, in which CWI offers a 70/30 split to the seller, with the seller agreeing to take the larger share. Once CWI and the seller agree to this split, we will let buyers bid on the assets, allowing the market to determine the sale price.
  • The third option is a combination of direct purchase and consignment.

Whether you’re a small business or a large government agency, replacing technology could cost you. Let CWI help you get the best value the next time you upgrade your IT assets.
