Whether you need basic IT hardware or a complete infrastructure refresh, BTA can provide the solution that best fits your business goals – from start to finish.

IT procurement is a multi-step process with an important strategic element to it. Hardware and software are not only a large investment, but also dictate the technical capabilities of your business. Procurement must be approached with short and long term business goals in mind.  At BTA we look at procurement with the larger picture in mind.  It isn’t about buying a computer quickly at the lowest price, it is about ensuring your entire IT infrastructure works as it should and is able to provide you with the capabilities your business needs to get ahead. Hardware and software choices, licensing options, budgeting and finance all play a key role.

 

Implementation & Management

At BTA we divide procurement into two phases: implementation and management.

In the implementation phase we review the requirements in light of your business strategy and provide potential options and our recommendation. Our experienced team then engages the vendors in an acquisition process (evaluating proposals, negotiating final pricing and expediting if need be), followed by the installation and testing of the products.

In the management phase we oversee the ongoing use of the equipment or software, including administering and managing all contracts, warranties and insurance.  We also review usage of equipment and software and work with you to develop best practices if relevant to your staff. Finally, we can assist with safe and secure asset disposal at the end of the life cycle.

Take advantage of our industry experience and long-standing vendor relationships to get the equipment you need today.  Email sales@bta.com for more information.
