"Keeping IT systems up to date is often a difficult task due to issues such as budgetary constraints or limited IT resources," says Daniel Reio, Director of Marketing, CDW Canada. "However, by refreshing existing technology, companies are able to save on costs and improve efficiencies. New products and technologies such as tablet PCs, virtualization software and energy-efficient hardware can help to greatly improve the day-to-day processes of small- and medium-sized businesses."

An annual poll of customers conducted by CDW Canada at its BTEX conference last year found that when making a decision to purchase new business technology, 70 per cent of respondents ranked replacing aging technology as extremely (22 per cent) or very (48 per cent) important. As well, 68 per cent ranked enhancing user productivity and efficiency as extremely (31 per cent) or very (37 per cent) important, and 51 per cent ranked making the workplace green by moving to energy-efficient technology as extremely (14 per cent) or very (37 per cent) important.
