Identifying the true cost of Information Technology within your organisation

Added: (Mon May 16 2005)

Pressbox (Press Release) - The latest industry research shows that significant financial savings are being made by organisations within the SMB sector today who are currently using Information Technology as a cost cutting tool.

With so many factors to consider in determining the true cost of capital investment, is it possible to calculate the savings in advance allowing a greater depth of knowledge to be shared assisting the decision making process.

Used as a business performance tool, WCI Technology have identified several areas where significant cost savings can be made and attributed to specific technologies within an organisation. Historically our expertise within the health sector deploying life critical information systems has equipped us with the information necessary to deploy solutions not only on a technological level but also reflecting this to deliver business benefits.

Hot technology topics where we have seen significant savings in time, and resources yet yielding greater performance include:

* The consolidation of existing storage infrastructures
The model for a consolidated storage infrastructure in visibly reducing current storage costs can be visibly demonstrated upon assessment of existing infrastructures.

* The increased use of mobility technology
Organisations are now starting to see cost savings through the reduced requirement for office space, travel expenses, parking and administration with remote working and handheld technology deployment.

* Enhanced tracking and asset monitoring
Ensuring document transfer and data is recorded from logistics, through to procurement, service and delivery, enhancing system and protocol performance.

* The provision of a managed technology service
On average WCI Technology are able to give back 10% of the annual IT budget to an organisation when a managed service contract is accepted.

These areas are considered to be the most attractive areas of investment for SMB organisations in 2005.

An example of how visible cost savings secured a large contract win and an effective business partnership...

The recent award of the prestigious NHS Direct managed service contract was directly related to our ability to demonstrate the cost savings that could be made prior to contract acceptance. WCI Technology would like to invite any decision makers within your organisation who are considering making an IT capital expenditure purchase in 2005 to contact us and allow us to show you where direct savings can be made.
