Using IT asset management can benefit your UK business, especially for assessing existing equipment. It enables you to plan and budget for when things are due to be replaced or upgraded more accurately.
Your IT equipment is likely to be one of the most important aspects of running your business. Without it, your users can’t work and your customers can’t access your services. Unstable devices or insufficient equipment don’t  just lead to frustration but also waste time and money. In some instances, it can even damage employee morale, with employees feeling undervalued and unworthy of effective equipment.


How Often Should IT Equipment be Replaced?

Various hardware manufacturers supply devices with a 1 year standard warranty, although many businesses will choose to pay to extend to a 3 year extended (and in some cases 5). We recommend planning and budgeting for replacements somewhere between 3 and 5 years.
The good news is you don’t have to replace all equipment at the exact same time. Different hardware will have different lifespans which means assessing existing equipment is paramount when planning.
