The RightAsset IT Workshop
Getting the most return from your IT investment starts with a clear view of all your hardware, software and cloud assets.
At Cima Solutions Group our goal is to be proactive to ensure your IT environment is supported – so your business can mitigate risk and carry on with productivity. During your review with us, we will discuss your satisfaction with your current support level, available support options for your current inventory and cost effective ways to purchase support.
Hardware Maintenance and Asset Management
Cima is a reseller of hardware maintenance from most of the major manufacturers, as well as various third party maintenance providers for after warranty support. We work with our clients regularly to review their assets, evaluate options for ideal support (9×5, 24×7 etc), and help them all the the way to end of life and disposal. Our RightAsset specialists schedule regular reviews to evaluate these options. Within these reviews we are working on co-terming support for simplified invoicing, making sure nothing is uncovered that shouldn’t be (and vice versa), and most importantly…lowering your operating expenses associated with hardware maintenance. Many times a refresh of technology is more cost effective. Our specialists are trained to recognize these situations and provide recommendations on refresh as well. We support a multitude of OEMs gear including:

Software Maintenance and Asset Management
Save Money & Ensure Compliance
Cima Solutions Group has partnered with Crayon and together we work to help our clients understand and optimize their software licensing with providers such as Oracle, Microsoft, IBM and others. Often we find clients have given up on understanding the complex licensing models employed by the major software companies, and simply succumbed to “Enterprise Agreement”. We work with our clients to dig through their licensing, comparing this to their actual NEEDs in order to provide the most cost effective licensing structure for them. Additionally, this leads to preparedness for any audit that may arise.
Our partnership enables us to optimize ROI through realistic TCO reduction.
