Benefits of Procuring Computers from your MSP

All computers and hardware have a lifecycle and at some point need to be replaced. Most businesses that outsource their IT to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) work with their Client Success Managers and Procurement teams to develop a hardware refresh plan (Evergreen Plan) that meets their needs and budget. But some clients decide to purchase from resellers for a variety of reasons. In this blog post, we will outline the benefits of purchasing computers directly through an MSP.  

Businesses rely on computers to operate. Having computers that are up-to-date results in better productivity and improved security. With a MSP, businesses can rely on professionals to manage your entire IT environment and that includes recommending and selling hardware solutions best aligned with your business needs. Here’s a list of the some of the main reasons why businesses rely on their MSP for all their procurement needs.  

Key Benefits 

IT Asset Lifecycle Management – Evergreen Plan: Your Client Success Manager (CSM) will help you map out a computer refresh plan that will ensure productivity, predictable IT budgeting, optimal securityand help you be prepared for growth and scalability. Your CSM knows your IT environment and can best help you navigate new purchases.
