Midmarket Organizations Shift IT Budget Focus

Midmarket organizations are putting more emphasis on customer management and productivity as they enter 2011.

Acquiring new equipment - laptops, desktops, printers and, increasingly, mobile devices - is critical for maintaining productivity and competitiveness. But, it's also very expensive. If IT departments don't have a strategy for making reasoned, tactical purchasing decisions, costs can get out of hand quickly. On top of that, redundant or unnecessary expenditures can quickly eat up precious budget dollars.


Info-Tech Research Group's Workstation & Peripherals Cost Reduction Assessment Tool can help IT lay the foundation for making wise purchasing decisions that not only reduce costs now, but potentially save money throughout the life of the hardware.


The tool features three tabs of questions that, when completed, generate guidance on:

  • Potential cost-saving actions
  • Relative amount of savings related to each action
  • Timeframe for realizing these savings
  • Challenges and ways to lessen or eliminate them


Take advantage of this handy tool to make sure your purchases get you the most benefit for your money.
