Walk into any auto dealership in December and you’re likely to be offered a good deal on a new car (with some skillful negotiation on your part, of course). Indeed, the end of the year is widely regarded as a good time to buy a new car. Why? Quite often, there’s unsold inventory sitting on dealer lots and sales staff and managers are eager to meet their end of year sales targets.
One downside of waiting until the end of the year to buy is that dealers may have a limited selection and supply of cars from which to choose. It’s not that much different in the world of information technology hardware. It’s a busy time of the year for hardware sales – demand is high. And, just like the situation at your local auto dealership, supplies of popular laptops, servers, PCs, firewalls and other hardware can become low as the end of the year approaches.
That’s why, at Future Link IT, we believe in planning ahead. As sure as the leaves are turning, the end of the year is fast approaching. Now is the time to lock in the services, solutions and hardware that will help move your business forward in 2017.
Planning ahead and ordering your hardware now – before the rush – will give you a leg up on the competition and provide some other important advantages. By ordering now, you’ll be able to:
- Capitalize on the best selection of hardware.
- Save money by taking advantage of manufacturer incentives (we’ll talk more about this in our next post).
- Save money on your taxes by taking advantage of Federal tax incentives (we’ll talk more about this in an upcoming post as well).
- Schedule installation to ensure that your job is completed before the end of the year.
If you haven’t already, call us to discuss your end of the year needs. Of course, we can’t sell you a car, but we can plan and manage your hardware purchases, install your new hardware and provide the ongoing support and service that you need to keep it all running smoothly.
