Navigating IT Procurement in a COVID world - Education Edition

Navigating IT Procurement in a COVID world – Education Edition

The past year has been challenging for companies and organizations. The COVID global pandemic has forced the world to change how they do business. No industry has seen more significant change than education. With virtual classes becoming the norm, schools had to scramble to expand and adapt their infrastructure to handle the increased traffic on their network. The need for servers and network hardware has increased significantly. We recently worked with a design school dealing with the complications of having all their students working remotely and needing to expand their rendering capacity. We rented them 4 servers with 128 cores to help with the added demand. The servers were a huge success, and all student projects were completed on time. Pro Network was able to work within their budget and time frame to deliver a solution.

Another ramification of the pandemic has been the shortage of hardware in the market. The global supply chain has been greatly impacted due to the reduction in manufacturing and the increase in demand. Anybody looking to buy IT hardware has experienced long lead times and increased prices. For schools looking to purchase hardware to satisfy requirements, this could be a huge challenge. We have been working with school districts and universities to assist them with procuring hardware. One option that has an increasing interest has been our Pro Renew refurbished product. From Network Hardware like Cisco to servers like HPE, Dell, or SuperMicro, the added benefit from purchasing tested and dependable refurbished hardware have helped educational institutions maximize budgets and satisfy requirements faster. Pro Network’s Pro Renew hardware is procured, refurbished, and tested by experts for the rigorous strains of your IT environment.

The global pandemic has caused many organizations to reimagine how they do business and has had a profound change in how we interact. For educational institutions adapting to the new reality, the need to have a trusted partner is paramount. You need to be able to think outside the box and have experts to assist you in navigating the complexity of the IT hardware industry. Pro Network experts are ready to assist you with your requirements.
