But what happened to all of your old IT assets?
If they’re sitting in storage, they may be costing you money. Here are four reasons why:
- For the first three or four years, your assets will have some remarket value. But the more time that passes, the more that value will decline.
- By storing old devices, you’re giving up space that could be used for other things, and losing man-hours by having to move or keep track of that unused equipment.
- All of those old devices have important data on them. By keeping them out of sight, you’re opening yourself up to a serious security risk.
- A lot could happen in your storage space: floods, accidents, etc. Equipment can get banged around and damaged as it gets moved, which means you’ll lose value if and when you try to resell your devices.
Having outdated devices can cost a great deal. According to a survey by the Ponemon Institute, hospitals lose $8 billion a year due to outmoded technology, thanks to a longer-than-necessary discharge process and a loss of doctor productivity.
