8 Million Devices Scanned, Over 3,600 Businesses Primed For Innovation: Softchoice Celebrates 10 Years of TechCheck™ Assessments

TORONTO, Aug. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Softchoice, a leading North American technology solutions and managed services provider, is celebrating 10 years of helping organizations reduce the cost, risk and complexity of managing their technology assets. Since launching its IT Asset Management (ITAM) service, the TechCheck™, Softchoice has scanned a whopping 8 million devices, yielding insights into areas such as software compliance, hardware lifecycle planning, security, SaaS management and more.

By adding consultative value, the award-winning TechCheck™ service has armed thousands of organizations with the information they need to make smarter technology decisions. The huge repository of inventory data has also resulted in a number Softchoice authored studies, on topics ranging from Windows XP end-of-life to SaaS sprawl and shadow IT.

"Time is one of the biggest reasons few organizations are able to take a more strategic approach to managing their IT assets," says David Brisbois, Softchoice's Senior Manager of Assessment Services. "By adding consultative value to technology inventory data, we're doing the leg work for our clients while delivering meaningful information they can use to reduce risk, minimize costs, and drive efficiencies across their organizations."

The first TechCheck™ − designed to analyze Microsoft licensing − was introduced in recognition that most IT professionals didn't get into technology to count licenses and audit PCs, but would rather focus on driving innovation. Over time, Softchoice has expanded its offerings to include assessments around storage, virtualization, networking, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) utilization and, most recently, converged infrastructure.

"Our TechCheck™ team provides business and IT leaders with a unique snapshot of the strengths and weaknesses within their tech environment," Brisbois says. "They've given our clients a new degree of transparency into their IT operations, and the resources to make smarter decisions going forward."

In the past decade, Softchoice has conducted nearly 7,600 assessments, with over 1,200 in 2013 alone. In total, Softchoice has scanned 8 million devices on behalf of more than 3,600 clients through TechCheck™.
