What is a Value-Added Reseller, and why should my business work with one?
A value-added reseller (VAR) is a company that has enhanced another company’s products with additional features or services. Rather than spending countless hours researching, reviewing, negotiating, and tracking, your business can outsource its procurement needs to a VAR for a simplified, expedited process.
A VAR has the industry knowledge and expertise to identify what computer components, servers, laptops, PCs, and more will enhance your business operations and help accomplish your goals. A VAR often has connections with technology providers, gaining access to special deals and promotions and putting more money back in your pocket.
As a value-added reseller with decades of experience, NexusTek has the expertise and connections to help your business get the best deals for the best products available. Our IT experts can also help implement and maintain your new equipment to ensure optimal performance.

Why should my company regularly update or replace software and hardware equipment?
Up-to-date, healthy IT equipment is critical for a solid infrastructure that supports advanced technologies, business operations, and the customer experience. Unfortunately, 53% of small businesses experience unplanned downtime due to software failure, and hardware failure is responsible for another 38%, reports TechRepublic; companies with unplanned downtime experienced business disruption (29%), decreased productivity (21%), revenue loss (17%), and negative reputation impacts (16%). 80% of businesses say digital tools will decrease downtime, according to a Vanson Bourne study, and 60% believe digital transformation is their #1 action.
And with Dell’s BIOS Security report disclosing that 63% of businesses experience a security breach from hardware vulnerabilities, it is in your company’s best interest to prioritize upgrading aging equipment for newer, more reliable products with the latest firmware and patching that meet the most recent security requirements.
Jumpstart or accelerate your digital transformation journey by procuring the latest software and hardware, whether laptop, desktop, or server, to increase uptime and productivity, ultimately leading to improved customer satisfaction.
How does investing in desktop PCs and laptops now save money in the long run?
While 36% of small businesses use PCs that are older than four years, reports TechAisle, it is a risky business. Working with aging computers can be like climbing uphill. According to a Microsoft study, older computers are more than twice as likely to experience issues like network connectivity problems or disk drive crashes that can lose valuable data.
The slower processing speeds and less powerful computing can bring productivity to a crawl, resulting in reduced ROI. A survey found that U.S. businesses lose up to $1.8 billion each year in wasted productivity due to obsolete technology.
Using outdated technology may also cost your company its customer loyalty as over 90% of people say it would cause them to consider taking their business elsewhere due to concerns over security, privacy, or user-friendly convenience. And they have a right to be concerned.
If you want to upgrade to the latest operating systems and software patches (which you should for security purposes alone), there may not be enough space in a 3+ year-old laptop’s already outdated storage capacity. Old computers or servers could malfunction or crash at unpredictable moments and causing unplanned downtime that can cost $5,600 per minute, while an hour can cost $140,000 to $540,000, reports Gartner. Eventually, repairing and maintaining a 3-year-old PC can cost 1.3x more than a PC less than 3 years old, finds a TechAisle study.
Not only is the aging laptop or PC decreasing your business’ bandwidth, but it is also making it more vulnerable to malicious cyberattacks. Such security breaches can be quite costly; in fact, an IBM study revealed the average cost of a data breach totals $3.86 million, and that does not even include the non-compliance fines.
Rather than be blindsided with unplanned and costly downtime at an inconvenient moment, refresh your PCs, laptops, and computer components in a timely fashion so that your business can plan and budget accordingly without unexpected capital expenditure costs.
Our 5+ year old server seems to be doing fine. Why should our business replace it?
By year three, the performance of an IT asset declines by 22%; by year four, according to IDC, it declines 33% and 59% by year seven. While the gradual decline may seem subtle, your company’s technology performance, and ultimately, its productivity could have serious consequences against your competitors.
According to an IDC report, an organization can lose up to 39% peak performance, 40% in application management costs, and 148% in server administration costs if it neglects to upgrade its server infrastructure in a timely fashion; the average server downtime is 2.6 hours in the first three years but increases to 5 hours after five years. The cost of maintaining a server increases 148% by its fifth year and 300% by its seventh.
Hardware refresh is crucial to a healthy IT infrastructure and allows users to simultaneously run 30% more apps on the same device, finds IDC. New servers also allow for more virtual machines, which can support the anywhere operations necessary to empower remote employees in today’s hybrid workforce.
Stay ahead of the competition with a fresh server with the latest computing power, capacity, and security so that your business never slows in today’s digital markets.
When is the best time to refresh or upgrade IT equipment?
While any time of the year is the perfect time to purchase more storage or refresh old laptops, desktop PCs, workstations, monitors, printers, servers, security hardware, and many other hardware items, the end of the year is a popular purchasing time. Technology manufacturers anticipate an increase in end-of-year spending on IT hardware for businesses, and they will often run special financing and discount promotions to help you improve your IT infrastructure.
Are there any tax incentives to replacing outdated hardware or software?
Replacing or upgrading computer components, PCs, laptops, servers, and software can lead to increased security, improved productivity, and maintenance cost savings, as well as tax incentives. The U.S. federal government offers tax deductions for small-to-midsized businesses to upgrade their hardware and software. *Section 179 of the United States IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. Section 179 has a deduction limit of $1 million and a spending cap of $2.5 million.
