A Sage perspective of 2017

   

Image ©: CulturalAwareness.comIt’s been a banner year for us here at Sage, so we thought it'd be good to do a quick recap of the year. Once that idea settled, the first thing that came to mind was our GoodTogether program.

This year has been Good Together

We’ve managed to donate hundreds of devices to five different communities across the US. That, of course, has been largely because of our amazing donors. Our GoodTogether program merely handles the refurbishment, relicensing and delivery of the devices, but the devices themselves are all from generous companies like Charles Schwab, Huntington Bank, DexYP, Netjets, and so many others.  From schools, to non-profits, to community centers, to whole communities in need, like those affected by the wildfires and hurricanes this year, we have proved that love and teamwork can make a big difference in our world.     

We couldn't have done it without you

But the donations don’t pay our bills. So, our second shout-out for 2017 goes to all the great clients we’ve been able to partner with. You know who you are, but we know you’ve signed up for a service that not only facilitates top-notch management of your IT assets, but that does so only through the most sustainable means. Because of you and your collaboration, Sage is poised to expand abroad to make your asset management programs more and more efficient.  And by doing that, you’ve helped the environment in more ways than you can imagine.  

We got a new look and freshened up

2017 was also a great year for our brand as we revamped our website and reinvested in our mission for upcoming branding campaigns. It can be hard not to get stuck doing the daily grind in place of living your mission, but thankfully, we caught that tendency before we veered off course. We’re back on track and we’re focused on the sustainability that puts Sage on the map more than ever.

And the letter's in the mail

This blog has gotten some love, too, this year. In fact, we’ve got a whole lot more in store for the Insights in ’18, so—as they say—stay tuned. We know you’re going to love the changes we have around the corner. And you can subscribe (sign up to the left) if you don’t want to miss the changes. Oh, and one more thing is on the horizon for the New Year from Sage: The Sage Bloom Report will provide evidential case studies of the wins that come through great IT asset management and disposition practices.      

So, bring on the New Year!

We know 2017 had its challenges and much of what you hear is negative, but we have high hopes that 2018 will be more optimistic. And how can it not? With technology advancing at a break-neck pace, more and more people warming to the idea of sustainability, and larger corporations proving the value of a good ESG program, the future is downright shiny.

Have a safe and Happy New Year, folks. We’ll see you in 2018.
