Ensuring maximum return on IT investment

25th March 2018 | In Lifecycle Services
 

Following a merger, one of the UK’s largest construction companies recovered thousands of pounds on their surplus IT equipment with Hardware.com.

 

When two British construction companies merged, they found themselves with a full warehouse of duplicate network and communications equipment, less than 2 years old, that was no longer needed.

A huge investment at stake and with Cisco finance in place, the company needed advice on how to release the value of their surplus system and physically remove the equipment from site.

With a strong environmental policy within the company, it was also important that the solution was as environmentally friendly as possible.

 

BUSINESS CHALLENGE   When two British construction companies merged, they found themselves with a full warehouse of duplicate network and communications equipment, less than 2 years old, that was no longer needed. A huge investment at stake and with Cisco finance in place, the company needed advice on how to release the value of their surplus system and physically remove the equipment from site. With a strong environmental policy within the company, it was also important that the solution was as environmentally friendly as possible.

BUSINESS SOLUTION Hardware.com provided a complete solution. As the equipment was relatively new and fully functional, it still held considerable value, meaning decommissioning or disposal would be a needless waste. After running a check on the redemption penalties associated with the Cisco finance in place, Hardware.com was able to audit the customer’s equipment and provide a highest market valuation at which they would agree to buy the equipment back, thereby allowing the company to recover the maximum value from their investment. Logistically, Hardware.com arranged for the physical removal of the equipment back to their own operations centre where it was assessed, refurbished to a good-as-new condition and returned to market.
