Arguing for monitor replacements RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi everyone,

    I've just taken up a post at a new company as their IT Co-ord, previously someone on site was moonlighting in the role along with help from a 3rd party contractor, to say that IT within the business is somewhat of an understatement.

    One of the first things I'm looking at doing is trying to bring the whole business up to date with their hardware, which includes replacing monitors. There are some monitors on site that must be a decade old and then some, for example, my monitor has a lovely sticker on it that says 'Works with Windows Vista'!

    Now I think I need to purchase around 20 monitors at my initial count, which is going to cost in the region of £2000, which I need to justify. Aside from warranty/repair costs, power consumption, less illness through eye strain for colleagues, could you advise on other reasons why this expenditure is a positive move for the business?

    Any advice on this front would be greatly appreciated!

    Many thanks,
