Cost reduction strategies

Tailored strategies to reduce costs

Capital expenditure is a major hurdle for most businesses. We offer a range of strategies that can be fully tailored to your needs or preferred style of running your infrastructure.

Hardware mapping

When was the last time you scanned and documented the entire infrastructure? Do you have a list of all parts that are critical? Do you know which are obsolete? Do you have a list of (hot-) pluggable, FRU and PnP components? 

This is why an inventory scan (on a regular basis) is highly important. Not only for running your organisation, but also to find out where we can cut costs while increasing your efficiency.

Intelligent inventory management

What components are in use and how much of them are in stock? Is there a stock threshold set? How do you make sure this threshold is maintained?

Having full insights in your inventory makes scanning your products a lot more reliable. Intelligent inventory management can include auto stock refill, stock threshold alerts, selling excessive stock and obsolescence management. By using our inventory management intelligence we have helped our clients significantly drop inventory spending.

Supplier consolidation

With supplier consolidation we bring additional efficiency and cost savings. Managing fewer vendors streamlines your purchasing process, enhances system compatibility, and allows us to negotiate more favorable contract terms.

It simplifies support tasks and improves system performance, while giving access to volume discounts and reductions in administrative costs. Aware of the potential risks associated with over-reliance on single vendors, we strategically balance these risks with benefits to ensure optimal outcomes.
