Part 2 – 5 More Ways You’re Wasting Your IT Budget
Is your business successful?
Successful businesses invest time, money, and effort into becoming experts in their field, not into managing functions outside their core industry. Partnering with a Value Added Reseller (VAR) is a great way to reduce spending and create the business / infrastructure alignment your company requires while keeping you out of the IT business.
|IF YOU’RE WASTING MONEY…||A VAR CAN PROVIDE…|
|1||Duplicating functionality with expensive equipment||Advice on when it’s OK to opt for cost efficiencies and when you should spend more|
|2||Spending money now that could be pushed to another budget year||Prioritized procurement plan based on critical need, company goals, and IT budget|
|3||Relying on a single manufacturer for your infrastructure equipment||Expert knowledge of best in breed products to design customized IT solutions and multi-manufacturer environments|
|4||Purchasing online or at retail prices||Discounts based on the VAR’s partner level that can be extended to you|
|5||Purchasing just ahead of (or behind) a major incentive campaign, or purchasing equipment that is nearing End Of Life (EOL)||Relationships with multiple manufacturers and distributors, access to incentives and promos, and advance knowledge of EOL cycles|
Establishing and maintaining a stable IT environment can be time consuming and expensive. It is also one of the most critical aspects of your business. Don’t waste time and money that could be saved by partnering with a VAR to outsource your IT needs.
