What Is IT Hardware Procurement?
IT procurement ensures that businesses have the right hardware and software to keep their operations running smoothly and improve operating efficiencies.
Think of it like shopping for computers, servers, printers, storage devices, cables, and software.
When outsourcing hardware procurement, your company requires analysis, inventory management, pricing, and supplier selection to ensure the best price.
Does My Company Need IT Hardware Procurement?
Without the right hardware, it’s impossible for your online business to function successfully. All of your devices and software should be current with industry standards and support your team’s needs.
When infrastructure is set up correctly and futureproofed, it’s far easier (and affordable) to make upgrades to your system.
Does Live Oak Offer Free IT Procurement?
We’ve never charged clients for IT procurement services and never will.
What Does the IT Procurement Process Look Like?
First, our experts identify your hardware needs, budget, system compatibility, and regulatory compliance. They’ll develop an itemized list (of hardware and software) that’s optimal for your company’s requirements.
It’s not enough to consider your performance and scalability requirements: When procuring IT hardware, Live Oak also takes future-proofing into consideration. This way, your organization will have the right tools to support its infrastructure and operations.
Next, we’ll connect you to third-party vendors, assist with negotiations, and ensure that everything works with your existing tech setup – at a $0 markup. To ensure full visibility on all hardware purchases, we set you up with a vendor account to keep your sales separate from your Live Oak account.
