The Total Economic Impact of Network Hardware Resale

October 17, 2013

At a crucial time when 76% of IT decision-makers are concerned with the rising pressures to reduce costs, Network Hardware Resale (NHR) engaged Forrester Consulting to quantify the voice, experience, and specific data points of six NHR customers in The Total Economic Impact of Network Hardware Resale, a case study focused on third-party hardware resale and maintenance. This case study concludes that a 10,000-employee composite organization with $3B annual revenues would experience a three-year, risk-adjusted ROI of 119% over a payback period of less than 90 days when acquiring network hardware and maintenance contracts from NHR.

  • Hardware and maintenance cost savings averaging as high as 65% and resulting in savings of $1.3M over three years
  • Network downtime avoidance, which mitigated unplanned downtime from three hours to 30 minutes (over 80%), amounting to $788K saved over three years
  • Service efficiency, which resulted in reduction of equipment installation time by 75% and improved ticket resolution time by 50%, due to deploying preconfigured hardware and making expertise quickly accessible

Challenging the Status Quo on Maintenance Contracts and Refresh Cycles to Lower Costs

June 19, 2013

Despite an overwhelming effort to reduce unnecessary IT costs, many organizations miss out on big IT cost savings each year by prematurely upgrading networking infrastructure and insufficiently scrutinizing ongoing maintenance contracts.

In a new commissioned global study on behalf of Network Hardware Resale, Forrester Consulting surveyed 304 IT decision-makers and revealed that businesses are blinded to the rewards of extending hardware lifecycles and third-party maintenance solutions when they default to vendor influence.

Join Mike Sheldon, CEO of NHR, and guest speaker Andre Kindness, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, for this 60-minute webinar to learn how to:

  • Avoid premature upgrades that drain your IT budget
  • Challenge the status quo on maintenance contracts to tap into cost savings
  • Leverage third-party maintenance to find value beyond OEMs
