Why does my business need an Estate Review & Analysis (ERA)?

No business can progress without first taking stock of their current environment – and by providing visibility of your technology’s warranty, battery health, and overall performance; Estate Review & Analysis (ERA) equips you with the knowledge you need to plan for the future effectively.

Most devices need to be updated every 3-5 years on average – meaning that refresh planning is something that businesses must consider regularly; as well as ensuring that they have the necessary budget to upgrade. Capacity to arrange device support is another factor, as is making a safe disposal strategy for legacy hardware once it is replaced.

For those seeking clarity on possible directions for their business, An Estate Review & Analysis (ERA) crafts a roadmap from your current situation to your next IT objective – and also helps to ensure that your success is maintained.

How does an Estate Review & Analysis (ERA) work?

So, how exactly does an Estate Review & Analysis (ERA) work? In order to gather information about your devices, a Data Collection Agent (DCA) is deployed across your network, extracting information from individual devices such as:

  • Hardware serial number
  • Device model
  • Processor
  • RAM
  • Battery health
  • BIOS
  • Disk space
  • Antivirus status & performance
  • Operating system
  • Update status, as well as any missing updates.

After 30 days, this data will be collated into a detailed report, to be discussed with you – then, once we have an understanding of your future objectives, we will have everything we need to tailor a Managed IT Service (MITS) solution to meet your goals. Pending your approval of our proposal, your solution will be put forward for Delivery, Installation, and Implementation, with continual monitoring conducted throughout your contract.
