How customers can minimise the impact of current financial pressures
There’s no denying that the last two years have been extremely challenging for most businesses. Even those who sold products which were in demand during the pandemic faced difficulties with their supply chain and with staff absence. As a result, costs soared, and the financial pressure put on enterprises trying to remain agile was considerable – and shows little sign of easing.
Whilst the most debilitating effects of Covid may thankfully now be receding, the ominous shadow of Brexit is still a very real threat to companies who simply want to get on with business. The added complications of new trade requirements, not to mention the soaring prices of materials, gas and electricity, means that operational costs are higher than ever.
In this kind of environment it’s easy to see why businesses are struggling to even consider making the technology investments they realise they so desperately need; upgrades they know are essential to the future success of their operation.
At PLM Global we like to offer solutions.
That’s why our services are designed to make the benefits of new technology accessible to all.
We entirely understand the ‘Catch 22’ situation which many enterprises face – the need to implement new mobilisation systems in order to make themselves more resilient to future challenges but the lack of capital to invest, thanks to the effects of the recent (and continuing) challenges!
Here are just a few of the ways we are able to help and support the majority of our clients: -
Refurbishment is the perfect solution for those applications which demand the most durable devices, including warehouses, manufacturing, transport and logistics. We are almost always able to refurbish existing equipment to bring it up to the standard required to meet new needs. Seldom in a customer-facing environment, refurbished rugged mobile technology is the perfect way to get full, reliable functionality at a fraction of the cost to replace.
Most businesses have valuable, but broken, units which have had to be shelved. In a busy working environment it is easy to have hand-held scanners, mobile printers and other equipment damaged, often dropped from a considerable height and onto very unforgiving hard surfaces. Our comprehensive repair service, in conjunction with our excellent relationship with OEMs, means we have an unrivalled ability to bring essential redundant equipment back to life, allowing it to be utilised where and when it is needed most.
Rental, rather than outright purchase, is a great option for industries who experience peak periods – for example retail or hospitality. During quieter times it seems absurd to have large numbers of one of your most expensive assets effectively gathering dust, especially if business peaks are infrequent or short (or both!). With our equipment rental option, we take all of the responsibility for the capital cost and let you simply enjoy the benefit of the latest technology exactly when you need it.
At PLM Global we specialise in the supply, repair and maintenance of hand-held capture devices, mobile print and EPoS hardware. We also specialise in making it as easy as possible for our clients to benefit from our expertise, and benefit from the technology and equipment which we know can provide significant advantages during the toughest financial times.
