To Avoid an IT Procurement Disaster, Avoid These Key Pitfalls.
Not Thinking About Your End Users
If you don’t know what your end-users actually need your hardware for, you could accidentally spend big money on technology that won’t help them. Before buying any new hardware, think about your users and how they’ll be using it. Will, they mostly work in the office, or will they be traveling a lot? What software do they currently use, and how often do they use it? Don’t assume one solution will work for everyone; find out what your users need their hardware for and research products that will fill their needs. You may learn your users have similar work habits, but taking the time to discover this is worth it.
Buying Products that Lack Versatility
Once you know how your users will be using your hardware, you may want to buy the first product you see that matches their needs. But rushing at this stage could mean you miss out on some extra benefits. Let’s think about your users again for a second. Some of them may want hardware they can use while they’re travelling, so you look at products that are lightweight and don’t take up lots of space. This is good, but you can do better. An extra bonus in this scenario would be hardware that also has a long battery life. Your user could use it during long-distance journeys when they don’t have access to a charging point.
Don’t look for hardware that solves one problem; look for hardware that solves lots of problems
Not Reviewing Your Current Hardware
Like we said at the start of this blog post, there’s no bigger mistake then spending lots on something you don’t need. So before you even think about new hardware, be brutally honest with yourself. Do you really need it, or do you just want it? And could you be using your current hardware more effectively? If this does what your users need it for, and there are ways of making it better, then there’s no need to spend time researching technology or part ways with your cash. Keep this in mind during your next procurement of IT equipment.
So How do you Find the Right IT Equipment and Hardware for Your Business?
After learning what your users need their hardware for and talking to those with first-hand experience of the technology on your shortlist, you’ll have a much better idea of the products you should be buying. If it can solve more than one problem, that’s great, and if you realise your existing hardware has untapped potential, that’s even better. Speedster IT will review your hardware and suggest where you should invest in new technology, and how you can improve your current products. Unlike major online outlets, which can charge high prices and rarely supply equipment for businesses, we can source the devices you need directly from the distributor.
