Technology is more important to businesses than ever. Unfortunately, many organizations are facing unpredictable costs, large capital expenses, and other challenges that make it difficult for them to fully leverage their IT.
NCC understands business technology and how to get the most from it. We can guide you to the right vendors, streamline implementation, and help you avoid costly pitfalls. Maximizing the productive use of IT assets can save companies millions of dollars long-term, and NCC can help you take control of a broad range of asset management concerns:
Access and installation
Priority of assets, needs, and usage
Current hardware and software assets ownership
Cost of assets and resell value
Lifecycle depreciation of assets
Replacement and procurement
Anticipatory needs and future procurement
IT Hardware Lifecycle Management
NCC organizes and reviews the entire lifecycle of your hardware, starting with existing equipment, and making recommendations for new equipment when it’s needed. For new equipment, our bulk discounts and industry connections ensure you receive the lowest prices possible.
IT Hardware Lifecycle Management involves managing equipment through every stage, from its original acquisition to its trade in or disposal. In between those two events are other important considerations:
Maintenance – On-site repairs or warranty replacements.
Upgrades – Memory, storage, and speed enhancements or replacement of legacy equipment.
Allocating assets for better use elsewhere in your company.
NCC’s Lifecycle Management helps fine-tune your physical resources for the best possible return on your tech investment. Throughout the process, NCC will provide your accounting with accurate depreciation costs. Our goal is to help you extend the life of IT equipment, maximize its value, and increase your ability to upgrade.
Software Asset Management Program
Prior to making any major decisions about your software program, NCC will perform a SAM review. By completing a thorough inventory of software, matching of software licenses to users, and a review of licensing policies and procedures, we will deploy our best practice tools and processes to create a strong SAM program that delivers these benefits:
Reduce purchasing costs through volume discounts
Control costs by eliminating unused licensed applications
