Did you know that the lifecycle of school tech equipment is three to five years, based on the device? Did you also know that failure to replace equipment on schedule has many hidden costs? How confident are you that your school’s tech equipment lifecycle plan minimizes risk, optimizes budget and enables productivity?
A sound lifecycle plan accounts for phased, ongoing replacement of disparate device lifecycles in a way that aligns with the technology budget and minimizes learning disruptions. Schools with robust lifecycle plans experience lower cybersecurity risk, maintenance costs, and help desk costs, as well as better staff and student productivity and morale.
TechMD’s upcoming webinar highlights the hidden costs of outdated school tech equipment and steps your school can take today to avoid them. Join us to learn best practices for crafting a sustainable lifecycle plan that fosters a secure, cost-effective technological environment. In this brief webinar, we will discuss:
- The lifecycle of different types of school tech equipment
- The risks and costs of ineffective lifecycle plans
- How to coordinate replacements to ensure continuity
- Expenditures that are covered by the E-Rate program
- How to develop a device inventory
TechMD understands the education sector’s unique issues and has extensive expertise helping districts maintain dependable, safe, and secure digital learning environments for staff, students, and communities without breaking the IT budget.
