As an IT purchasing director, you are already familiar with the pressure to keep costs down. This often means making IT budgets stretch as far as you can, which can be difficult when the prices of new computers from major manufacturers like Lenovo can be high. Cutting costs in the IT department often leads to the “you get what you pay for” nightmare, which can lead to greater issues companywide. Making a solid investment in your hardware is crucial, as good equipment has the ability to free up valuable time for IT employees to tackle more urgent issues.
Opting for recertified Lenovo laptops can be an effective way to get more value out of an IT purchase. With these options, you get the same performance as a brand new PC without the steep capital investment.
Choosing to invest in recertified computers instead of new models may also be the only way for buyers to access hardware that has been discontinued by Lenovo. As the only global provider for Lenovo’s Options Continuation Program, IT Xchange has the unique ability to provide withdrawn or discontinued parts, products and options from Lenovo. This way, businesses can choose to incorporate previous generation refurbished Lenovo laptops into their existing IT infrastructures. The OCP also allows customers who may not need all the bells and whistles of the latest models to opt for older model laptops, which can add up to thousands of dollars in up-front savings.
The Program gives customers more freedom to keep their existing IT foundations running with consistent hardware for a longer stretch of time, as parts and options remain available through the OCP far after they stop being marketed by the OEM. Not only does the Program offer convenience and drastically reduced hassle, but helps businesses free up capital to reinvest.
While buying certified refurbished Lenovo laptops is one great way to save capital, you can also opt to purchase laptop parts through the OCP. This allows businesses who are able to repair or rebuild existing computers that have broken down to do so. Using IT Xchange’s Lenovo quick search option, you can find any part numbers you may be searching for. Here is a look at some of the parts you can find from IT Xchange:
- Hard Drives – A high-quality hard drive is truly an essential part of computer performance. We offer traditional hard drives with both IDE and SATA connections, in addition to SSDs that can enhance your laptop’s speed and help minimize malfunctions in the future.
- CPUs – Intel core CPUs are some of the most popular processors used by almost every laptop manufacturer, and you can find Intel single-core, dual-core, and quad-core CPUs at IT Xchange. We also stock a variety of non-Intel CPUs.
- Memory – RAM lets your machines run more quickly and efficiently, and you might find that a memory boost makes a seemingly-outdated computer usable again.
- Batteries, docking stations, optical drives, and a wide range of accessories
For businesses, the options available through the OCP and the Lenovo options quick search can provide the capital flexibility they need to reinvest, making IT Xchange a continuing partner for our customers’ growth.
