MDSi to Exhibit at Cable-Tec Expo ’15, Booth #2715, New Orleans, LA
MDSi to demonstrate Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM) solutions at the Cable-Tec Expo ‘15 with strategic partner Fulcrum Technologies.

Advancements in technology require Communications Service Providers (CSP’s) to upgrade network equipment frequently, resulting in unused equipment and excess inventory. One of the many benefits of asset lifecycle management (ALM) is recovering value from equipment and parts that are no longer needed for their original purpose.  As a leader in cost avoidance and asset management programs and services, MDSi looks forward to our annual participation in the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo.

Centralized Visibility for Dexterous Inventory and Asset Lifecycle Management

Rapid expansion of businesses, along with an acute upsurge in technological trends, demands for clear-cut estimation and evaluation of company resources.

Asset Lifecycle Management: Achieving Cost Avoidance Through Informed Decision Making

As technology continues to change and an organization expands, proper administration of current technology assets becomes essential. Reduced visibility during asset lifecycle management increases expenses, decreases reliability, and is detrimental to business operations. Does your company find itself purchasing duplicate hardware, increasing inactive inventory? Do you have a centralized tool that will easily give you an accurate inventory of both inactive and active hardware across your global infrastructure? Are you paying for storage space for inactive hardware that you can make money on through decommission or redeployment?
