Need New Computer Hardware But Lack the Capital? You’ve Got Options

How often do you look at a workstation in your office and say, “Wow, I should replace that soon!” Old equipment is vulnerable to all sorts of performance issues, and if you wait too long to replace it, you might be dealing with troublesome downtime and wasted capital. Plus, older hardware is often harder and more expensive to replace. Thankfully, there’s a service that’s capable of changing the way that you procure new hardware, including workstations, server units, network components, and so much more.

This service--hardware procurement--is one of the best ways that your organization can save money when performing a technology revamp for your office. Considering the fact that nothing lasts forever, including your workstations and server units, you’ll need to have a plan in place just in case you need to replace a workstation in a pinch. This is what hardware procurement allows for, as it presents a much more affordable alternative to purchasing hardware solutions outright.

Procuring New Hardware
Normally, procuring new hardware can break the bank and cause a problem for months, or even years. Despite this, hardware refreshes are an important part of ensuring that your network is functional. How can your organization take advantage of these helpful practices without limiting your business’s IT budget in the future?

One way that you can get around this roadblock is by working with your IT provider. Depending on your service agreement, you might be able to procure hardware at a more reasonable price, perhaps even at a flat monthly rate instead of a large up-front cost. We like to call this Hardware as a Service (HaaS), and it provides businesses more freedom in their budget and lets them take advantage of the latest and greatest technology solutions without going over the edge. If you’re unsure if Heart of Texas Network Consultants provides this service, be sure to ask.

Start with an Assessment
If you’re unsure of where you stand in terms of hardware procurement, we know where you can start. An assessment from Heart of Texas Network Consultants is a great way to start thinking about a hardware refresh. This takes into account much more than just the condition of your current assets. In fact, it also covers where you hope to be in the near future. This strategy helps your business on track for where you want to be down the road.

Upgrading your hardware routinely is also an important part of staying up-to-date with security protocol. Old hardware might not be capable of running more recent versions of operating systems or enterprise software, which will in turn affect your ability to resist threats like malware and viruses.

Even if you don’t think you need the assistance with hardware upgrades, an assessment is a great way to see how you can improve the current status of your network. To schedule your IT assessment, call us today at (254) 848-7100.
