Bond University – IT Asset Logistics and Deployments
G1 Asset Management has recently completed a multi-site IT deployment project for Bond University.
The project involved the receipting, warehousing, transport and on-site installation of end-user desktop and laptop workstations, as well as the removal and decommissioning of the existing redundant IT assets.
IT Deployment Services Provided
Our primary services to Bond University for this project consisted of:
- Receipt of IT assets from Dell
- Storage of the IT assets off-site until deployment was ready to begin
- Inventory management and asset reporting services
- Transport of assets from secure off-site storage location to various on-campus locations
- Removal of existing IT assets where replacement assets were to be deployed
- Secure data destruction, recycling and asset reporting for decommissioned assets
- Installation of desktop computers, laptop computers, monitors and peripherals to desks
- Cable management and testing of installed assets to ensure assets were ready for use
- Clean up of packaging materials and site make-good
“We can always know with confidence that the work set out will always be completed to a high standard.”
Project Outcomes For Bond University
By working with us on this project, Bond University were able to obtain significant improvements to efficiency and project costs through the reduction of on-site storage and reduced high-level internal labour charges.
Simplification Of Logistics Through The Use Of Our Receipting And Warehousing Services.
Secure off-site receipting and storage of assets allowed the university to simplify the ordering process and avoid the logistical issues of receipting large volumes of sensitive IT assets. The storage of assets at our secure facility also allowed the client to avoid the storage of assets in high cost-per-square-meter on-site locations. Assets were simply transported on-demand from our location to the client’s location on an ad-hoc basis, significantly simplifying deployment operations.
Increased Rollout Speed And Reduced Labour Costs By Using Our On-Site Installation Services.
By utilising our on-site deployment services, the university was able to significantly increase the rollout speed of the project compared to using only internal IT staff. The use of our IT resources for the labour intensive but relatively low level installation tasks also represented a significant cost saving compared with using internal high level, high paid IT staff to perform these same tasks.
Benefit Of One Single Contact For The Entire Asset Refresh Process
Our services start at asset receipting and cover every step in the IT refresh process, all the way through to the removal, decommissioning and recycling of redundant IT assets. Bond University was able to handle the entire refresh process with the assistance of just one services company, allowing a very streamlined refresh process.
“We have always found Gl’s level of service to be exceptional. The team consistently goes above and beyond to provide solid, dependable results.”
