The future of IT procurement

The tasks of an IT department are numerous and wide-ranging. It has to ensure that the necessary IT infrastructure is available to enable colleagues to work efficiently, securely, and flexibly. This ties up a lot of resources. New requirements, for example that IT should be sustainable, present an additional challenge. Our e-book explains how you can make your IT sustainable WITHOUT tying up resources.

FAQ: What you need to know as an IT manager

How can sustainable IT be implemented without tying up resources?

We are well aware of the increasing demands and numerous tasks that you face. That is why we take work off your hands and give you access to our TESMA® platform, which allows you to easily and flexibly manage your IT. Our business model, based on the circular economy, and our carbonZER0® offsetting option ensure that your IT is sustainable. You can simply add these services to your existing order with no extra effort. 

Why should I remarket my IT assets?

IT assets that you no longer use, such as PCs, laptops, and smartphones, are professionally refurbished and remarketed. This enables us to make a substantial contribution to the reduction in electronic waste while increasing the availability of IT devices on the market. This is a very relevant topic at the moment, and one that is of growing importance to companies whose internal strategies entail using refurbished equipment in some areas of their IT landscape.

What happens to any sensitive data stored on the equipment at the end of its lifecycle?

The experts in our technology center run a professional and ISO-certified data erasure process (eraSURE®) on every device. We have over 40 years’ experience in data erasure, refurbishment, and recycling.

Users are increasingly asking for sustainable IT devices. How can I satisfy this demand?

You can either rely on a customized business concept that enables you to contribute to the reduction in electronic waste, or you can make your IT carbon-neutral. You can make this decision as a company, or leave it up to your employees when they order their equipment. We take care of the entire process.

Excerpt from our e-book

“There is no denying it: Digitalization – from smartphones to streaming and blockchain technology – is responsible for a substantial amount of carbon emissions. The bulk of these are emitted right at the start during raw material extraction and the manufacture of IT equipment. Transport also has a considerable carbon footprint, not least because of the complex structures of global supply chains. Once devices are delivered to the user, they are often used only for a short period of time before being disposed of. This results in millions of tonnes of electronic waste.”

If you want to equip your company for the future and reduce the carbon footprint of your IT without tying up resources, then read our e-book, which contains a checklist of things to bear in mind during implementation.
