Midwest State Police Department

Challenge:
The State Police Department of one Midwestern state wanted to replace 1,000 Panasonic Toughbook Computers with newer models, but it needed to keep the costs of acquisition down.

Solution:
The State Police contacted their reseller and PlanITROI at the same time to discuss the time requirements for a PlanITROI Asset Value Recovery program.  The objective was to eliminate, or greatly reduce, the expense figure they had been quoted for recycling the older Toughbook Computers.

Result:
PlanITROI expedited the program for the State Police by quickly assessing the client’s assets, moving the logistics process along rapidly, and getting its technical personnel to go the extra mile during the refurbishment process.  PlanITROI produced enough revenue upfront for the retired Toughbook Computers to significantly reduce the purchase price of the new equipment from the reseller.


Corporate HQ Refresh

Challenge:
One Fortune 500 client sought to deliver new computers to everyone at a corporate campus and projected the installation and integration process might require a year’s time.  Multiple departments needed to be consulted.  When a full committee of department representatives gathered it determined that the projected program costs would increase significantly.

Solution:
PlanITROI was contacted to address how the older and surplus equipment could be removed in an orderly manner, and processed for any remaining values.  PlanITROI developed a trade-in program to operate in concert with the deployment of new equipment.  Each department knew the IT asset retirement and pick-up schedule in advance and collection points were established and communicated.

Result:
By coordinating delivery of the new assets with the removal of the retired assets, the major corporation saw a vast reduction in its refresh program costs.  The PlanITROI trade-in program addressed asset tracking, storage, image, data sanitization and in some cases hard drive destruction, as well as all packing and logistics.

 


Healthcare Products Corporation Needed a Frozen Technology Solution

Challenge:
A leading healthcare and pharmaceutical client needed to bridge the gap between the end of the manufacture of one software program and the start of new Siebel program for remote sales staff.

Solution:
PlanITROI sold nearly $1.0 million of expertly refurbished IBM ThinkPadsm notebooks that matched existing standards.  At the same time, PlanITROI provided purchase orders, with an agreed upon price, to take the equipment back as new units became available with the new software.

Result:
The client, with PlanITROI’s guidance and support, was able to implement a smooth transition program and no field force members were without the equipment or systems they needed.  The solution save our client approximately $500,000.
