Asset Management

Managing your assets to maximise your ROI

At Bell Integration, we provide a comprehensive cost-effective asset management solution involving a number of our services to analyse all your IT assets and ensure they’re used to their full potential so that you gain the most from your investment.

The challenge

With so many IT assets of varying age and value within any organisation, it’s both difficult and time consuming to manage them effectively. But it’s essential that it’s made a priority as inefficient management is one of the leading factors in IT overspend.

There can be a lack of knowledge of the current assets owned by the business and how to store and safely dispose of them. There is also the issue of overprovisioning of hardware and not maximising usage against current needs. There needs to be strategic alignment of hardware vendors and also awareness to ensure that current hardware isn’t preventing modernisation.

Inefficient asset management can lead to poor commercial deals with vendors being made and lack of governance around new hardware introduction.

Businesses need a process in place to identify and keep track of their valuable IT assets to ensure they’re always compliant and maximising usage.

Our solution

Stage 1: Assessment
During the first phase, we discover all your hardware assets and build an inventory. We then analyse your hardware types and warranty and support status to build a current service model.

Stage 2: Implementation
Our implementation covers the following areas:

  • Target (legacy) equipment ideal for modernisation – See Data Centre Optimisation
  • Can TUPE existing staff into Bell asset management services – See People Outsource
  • Identify systems suitable for IaaS cloud migration – See Cloud Services
  • Identify equipment suitable for decommissioning & retirement, typically 30% of estate – See Recycle & Retire
  • Analysis of SLA requirements, and alignment to support – See RUN services
  • End to end management and carrying out of hardware fault logging (see Monitoring & Service desk ), asset tracking, break fix (see Hardware Maintenance ) either warranty or support, tagging, imaging, re-introduction to service or ready for use pools
  • Analysis of current stored hardware assets to look at smart storage
    • Relocation of asset storage to locations based upon service level requirements (e.g. if mission critical spares, then on-site with Data Centre or Users, but non-critical in cheaper locations)
    • Bell can store in secure warehouse (Portsmouth, Wokingham) including bonded warehouse solutions for compliance and security
  • Transportation of assets across locations throughout Europe
  • Advice in implementing standards across the hardware estate people, process & technology
