CWPS IT Asset Intelligence

Hardware Assets

Every IT hardware asset has a useful life. Many of these devices have moving parts, so they must be replaced every 3 to 5 years. CWPS catalogs and ages your IT hardware assets during our onboarding process and this database allows CWPS to provide you meaningful asset recapitalization information. This information is available from your TAM in real-time and is reviewed at each periodic business review. 

Software Assets

Unlike hardware assets, many software assets have a perpetual life as long as you keep your support contracts current. Therefore, it is important to understand the renewal dates and terms around your software licensing. Likewise, it is important to understand what you are using so that you are not paying for software that is going unused. CWPS’ Asset Intelligence program provides meaningful guidance for you to make informed decisions about your software assets. 

Support Contracts

Whether it is a hardware warranty renewal, a support contract renewal or a circuit renewal, CWPS can capture it in our database. We will review this information with you at each business review to make sure your IT spend is as impactful as possible. 

Complete IT Budgeting

1 Year and 5 Year Presentations

Utilizing the CWPS IT Asset Intelligence systems, your organization will have a handle on your IT budget at any given moment. This information is available from your TAM in real-time and is reviewed at each periodic business review.

Periodic Business Reviews

Your Trusted IT Strategic Advisor

Under the CWPS IT Assist program, you will be assigned a dedicated Technical Account Manager that is responsible for handling the non-tactical aspects of your support. One of the key deliverables from CWPS in this area is your Business Review. At these meetings, you are given a most current documentation set, presented an asset management schedule and a most current budget. Additionally, CWPS reviews your support activities against intelligent algorithms and makes recommendations for improvement. You will get a sense for the health of your IT environment versus similar clients in the CWPS portfolio, which is helpful when determining IT budget allocation.
