All business owners like to think they’re actively curtailing spending. During these economic times, Benjamin Franklin’s old maxim, “a penny saved is a penny earned” is not just good advice – it’s a sound business strategy.
As you read the above, perhaps all the ways you’re actively watching spending at your business just flashed through your head, in a sort of mental checklist. You’ve been vigilant. Careful. Disciplined. Check. Check. Check. You’re confident you’ve watched and curtailed spending in all the ways you can.
Or have you?
Is there something you’ve missed?
There is indeed another cost saving strategy you perhaps haven’t considered. And it doesn’t just promise to save you hundreds, more than likely thousands, or tens of thousands of dollars without any sacrifice to your productivity or manpower.
Ask yourself “how much are we spending on IT equipment?” Then ask yourself why. Usually business owners never ask the second question. That’s because too often they just assume that they must have the very newest models of everything. We’re talking up-to-the-minute new, just off the assembly line this morning new.
Factory fresh IT equipment is actually a money losing proposition for a business. That’s because IT equipment depreciates, generally, approximately 5% every month. That’s right. About 5% of its value is usually lost every month. Think about that. That’s a jaw-dropping 60% every year in irretrievable loss.
The fact is most business owners aren’t aware that there is a smart, viable, and strategic alternative to this loss.
Quality, current, refurbished IT equipment.
Incredible savings are available when you buy refurbished IT equipment. It’s the same idea behind buying a previously owned, newer model car in outstanding condition with a reliable warranty. The only difference between this car and the one just off the assembly line is the price sticker. And it’s the same with refurbished IT equipment. You might have some signs of use – but ultimately, it’s a functional unit which in many times still carries a warranty as good as new.
And there is a second option as well. Surplus IT equipment, still new in box, is also available at dramatic savings. Companies buy IT equipment and never use it – maybe their needs changed, or they bought too much of it.
