The nature of IT & Technology products is that there is a constant evolution going on, with new product introductions always just around the corner. Therefore the quantity of equipment that is needed in a loan pool will vary depending on whether the product is in its introduction phase, its mature market position phase, or its market exit phase.
Likewise individual products are part of product ranges, and product ranges usually include high spec & full featured products, as well low spec and low featured products.
Decisions have to be taken about what profile of products is “best”, and that will be an evolving picture based on the product life cycle.
We would expect to engage with each Technology manufacturer we support, review with them Product RoadMaps and Rollout plans, and make joint decisions, and supportive decisions, about what the make up of the Evaluation pool should be currently, and how it should change over time.
