To ensure your organization is running at maximum efficiency, you need a device lifecycle plan. Usually, this process entails dropping off old technology in person to the IT department or to an office. This process can be time-consuming for both IT teams and end users. And, what happens when there’s a pandemic on the rise?
Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, one Canadian rewards company had been manually keeping track of inbound and outbound technology while outsourcing operational tactics with different vendors, including warehousing, imaging and asset disposal. These tasks are sometimes designated to IT departments, but this company wanted to keep their IT professionals focused on essential daily operations and reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19. As a result, they needed a partner that offers zero-touch hot swapping solutions and a simple way to order these services via a web portal.
A zero-touch hot swapping solution enables the IT team to submit an order at any time, enter the end user’s address and automatically send the new device from a warehouse. With a retrieval order, an empty box and waybill are ordered and sent to the end user’s address. They then pack up the device and send it back for disposal. Convenient tracking through the portal allows the IT team to independently manage ins and outs without touching any device or box.
Insight had the solution.
Insight’s device lifecycle services provided exactly what the organization was looking for. Our team proposed our device lifecycle and end-user support services, which included zero-touch kitting and asset disposal with hot swap, all through an easy-to-use portal.
The rewards program company enthusiastically partnered with Insight. As a result, they were able to cut down the number of vendors they worked with while providing their team with the automated, zero-touch solutions they wanted.
