Planning the Future
Third Party IT Asset Disposition in a Post-Pandemic WorldIn the first half of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted many businesses. They had to react quickly to staff working remotely, vendor inventory fluctuations, third-party partner shutdowns, and more. It was no different for providers of global IT asset disposition services. Our customers’ IT equipment spending, location, reuse, and disposal patterns changed radically within months. Getting inventory to and from the homes of customers’ employees through a box program became an overnight requirement.
Amid this time of behavioral changes, Ingram Micro set out to update our 2021-2026 ITAD business strategy.
We quickly realized that customer interviews with our largest and most complex clients were necessary to understanding which changes were temporary and which would become permanent. This white paper presents a summary of those discussions and research done by our team as we planned our strategy alongside our customers.
Topics covered include what companies are saying about:
- Remote work
- Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud Use
- Desktop as a Service, Depot, Storage and Box Programs
- Investment in Asset Management Tools
- Information Security and Compliance
- Sustainability and Reusability
