FAQs

  • What is hardware/software procurement?

    Hardware and software procurement involves the purchase of equipment under contract to meet your business goals and budget. A cost-effective, customised procurement solution can boost productivity and profitability by streamlining processes and enhancing workflows within increasingly complex environments. Additionally, it can promote innovation and collaboration. Hardware and software purchased within a managed service will ensure your business benefits from the best assets available while lowering the total cost of ownership. It also guarantees that your software and devices are upgraded without network disruption and that any third party issues are dealt with professionally on your behalf.

  • What is an IT procurement process?

    An IT procurement process begins with information gathering to ensure a clear understanding of your business, day-to-day processes, budget, and goals. Using this information, we can analyse potential vendors, their products, and service levels to determine the best fit. Your IT procurement recommendation will include itemised infrastructure. Depending on your budget and in-house capabilities, it will also include a series of activities, procedures and services to install, set up and maintain infrastructure that maximises efficiencies from day one. Ongoing expert contract management is also advised.

  • What are the goals for IT procurement?

    Regardless of the size of your organisation, your information technology should empower staff members to work with ease and efficiency from wherever they are, whenever they need. Your IT procurement solution should be vendor agnostic, cost-effective, secure, scalable and upgradeable to meet your changing needs. Hardware and software must be supported with the highest service levels and expertise. Contracts must be managed to ensure assets are upgraded, and licences renewed as required, without delay or disruption.

  • What are some procurement risks?

    There are many risks associated with the procurement of information technology. Understandably, most organisations do not have the time or in-house resources to avoid them. As experts in IT, The Missing Link understands rapidly evolving hardware and software essential to ensure you are equipped with assets that empower your team to maximise efficiency and productivity. Strong vendor relationships are critical to ensuring your infrastructure is fully supported with high service levels and warranties. Detailed contracts must be closely managed to ensure they are compliant with industry codes or government regulations and that licences are maintained.

  • How can you be successful in IT procurement?

    IT procurement is complex and time-consuming. Many organisations do not have the in-house expertise to design, procure, and manage the infrastructure required to boost productivity while reducing the total cost of ownership. At The Missing Link, our procurement experts will work with you to understand your information technology needs and business goals and advise you on the most appropriate software and devices. With strong supplier relationships, we’ll source the agreed assets and support them with water-tight contract management to ensure they remain current, compliant and meet your evolving business requirements.
