New COSVCON and CSG partnership delivers unprecedented insight into financial opportunities for IT estates

WEEE Systems, an innovator in technology lifecycle management, today announces a new partnership between its COSVCON business unit, and CSG, the award-winning managed service and asset finance provider. Together, COSVCON and CSG now provide full asset level visibility of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of an IT estate, from selection to retirement, designed to inform and enable necessary future investment through tailored structured financing on optimal terms.

COSVCON tracks the changes in Cost versus Contribution of the assets in an IT estate, providing concise, current information, which allows TCO to be managed and reduced. Its accurate analysis and dashboard views enable finance and IT teams to proactively manage the individual assets throughout their lifecycle, and their transformation at retirement through a strategic e-waste approach that also drives compliance.

“WEEE Systems’ partnership with CSG is designed to help any organisation striving to optimise its existing IT estate whilst embracing new demands for investment to deliver even greater efficiencies,” said Bob Clarke, CEO, WEEE Systems. “CSG’s forward-thinking approach to creating smart financial instruments to meet these needs matches our own new thinking in IT asset management and responsible yet profitable e-waste transformation. Together, we offer a real opportunity to put CFOs and CIOs on the same page to run an optimum IT estate to support their overall business goals.”

COSVCON and CSG have come together to address three current problems for IT and finance teams in commercial and public sector organisations: keeping pace with IT refresh cycles in times of austerity and budget cuts; managing finances to hit business objectives, and communication between two departments which ‘speak’ different languages. The partnership allows organisations to plan strategic ICT equipment refreshes in the face of stringent budget constraints.

“CSG brings a pragmatic approach to the financing of Capital Expenditure that meets the changing needs of our clients,” said David Jackson, CEO, CSG. “We believe that our partnership with COSVCON offers a means for commercial and public sector organisations to keep pace with technology whilst meeting changing accounting standards and restricted CAPEX budgets.”
