 Tips for Planning a Hardware Refresh Before the New Year
Fabio Suffell | 02-11-17

Hardware refreshes are challenging at the best of times, especially when it comes to rolling out a hardware refresh company-wide for the new year. Since we’re experts in the IT industry, we want to help you prepare for your hardware refresh so that it is as painless as possible. 


To do that, we’ve put together some tips below to help you perform the easiest and most efficient hardware refresh for your company, coming into the new year.
 

1. Understand Your Hardware

 In the early planning stages of your hardware refresh, Qbit will create a comprehensive list of all your devices and their capabilities. This includes things like:

  • Server Age
  • Laptops
  • Desktops
  • Tablets
  • Hard Drives
  • Processor Power
  • Memory and Storage

 Once we have compiled this list, you will be able to clearly identify what attention each device will need. This is also a great time to cross check which devices have come out of or are due to come out of their warranty period.

2. Understand Your Business, its Needs and the Ultimate Goal 

A hardware refresh isn’t really an easy task that you can complete in one day. You need to know what the reason is for wanting to perform the refresh, and what it is that you want to get out of doing it. Perhaps you’re wanting to support more applications or you want to have better cost per performance. Whatever your reasoning is, we will guide you in implementing the right changes and assessing the costs.

3. Take Advantage of the Latest Options and IT Trends

If you’re serious about performing a hardware refresh in time for the new year then there is no better time to take advantage of the latest options and IT trends. At Qbit we have a dedicated team of specialists providing Perth with the best IT support and Managed IT services.
