Black Friday and refurbished IT
The days are getting shorter, the clocks have gone back, and the Christmas tinsel is starting to go up. It can only mean one thing – it’s time for Black Friday.
Last year, British consumers splashed out a whopping £7.5bn on discounts and deals over the course of the Black Friday weekend, with more than two in every three pounds being spent online.
While this is a vital time for retailers to boost revenue and increase their customer base, it is notorious for placing abnormally high workloads on systems and processes. Because of this additional strain, it is still not uncommon for backend systems to go down, taking sales and reputations with them – not beneficial on the busiest sales weekend of the year.
With online channels increasingly accounting for greater share of online spend, having a robust and scalable IT infrastructure is more important than ever and making sure you invest in the right equipment for your enterprise IT requirements is paramount. So where does refurbished IT come into it?
Depending on your IT needs, refurbished equipment is a great way to manage costs, while boosting productivity and turbo charging your systems.
