Technology Asset Refreshment Program (TARP)
At Miken Technologies, we understand that having to maintain and use aging or outdated hardware and systems can be a burden on businesses and organizations. If the IT equipment falters or is no longer within its lifecycle, the results could have the opposite of the intended effect, and the business or organization may face significant issues.
In fact, the true cost of slow systems can be surprisingly high for any business. Slow workstations are estimated to drop productivity by 2.75% (13 minutes per day, or 5.5 days per year). The problem is exacerbated with server equipment, with can dramatically affect a large number of users in parallel. As a result, the 1-year ROI for replacement of old systems is often 5X to 10X.
When it comes time to replace or upgrade IT equipment, it’s important to rely on a company experienced in IT asset management. Miken Technologies’ Technology Asset Refreshment Program, or TARP, will manage the entire process and help your business or organization manage the costs and provide better control of lifecycle asset management.
