London – 6th February 2013 – To celebrate the launch of its new website and smartTOOLS portal Insight is asking those within the workplace to nominate the star in the office as their Office Champ to put them and their colleague in with a chance of winning a fantastic tablet computer.

While the launch of the new website and smartTOOLS suite has been designed to provide clients with a slick user experience to address all their business needs when it comes to purchasing and managing IT assets, Office Champ (#OfficeChamp) is a nod to those people who consistently make the working day better for those around them – be it through sheer efficiency, going above and beyond the call of duty, always coming up with the brightest ideas or repeatedly putting in the extra hours week in, week out.

Your Office Champ could be the colleague who consistently goes out of their way to help others around them. It may be that they’ve helped you with IT issues and saved your blushes, taught you a new skill, solved one of those tricky problems that’s been holding you back, or are simply outstanding at their job. Whatever the reason Office Champ is your chance to thank them. Tell us who you think the star in your office is, giving us your reasons why.

Of course, having the right people and tools in place are the key to any successful business operation and Insight’s new website and smartTOOLS portal, part of the firm’s ‘One Web’ global initiative, have been designed with this in mind.

The new website, based on client feedback, follows six months of intensive planning to deliver a best-in-class online user interface and buying experience for clients who now benefit from improved search functionality, faster checkout process and handy new shipping estimator allowing users to see the value of their total order.

With Insight’s new smartTOOLS portal businesses are armed with a powerful suite of unique business optimisation tools for procurement, asset and licence management, allowing those within the enterprise to deploy and manage their IT estate effortlessly in a secure, pain-free environment. Formerly known as myInsight, the upgraded portal becomes the central hub for purchasing, account management and the new range of smartTOOLS including smartLICENSEMANAGER, smartRENEWAL, smartCLOUD, smartEA, and smartEPP – all available free of charge to Insight clients.

smartLICENSEMANAGER has been designed to put businesses in control of their licence estate, giving instant transparency of entitlement and software installed from enterprise agreements and allows enterprises to plan and manage compliance obligations in minutes.

smartRENEWAL provides firms with a comprehensive annuity status overview and automatic renewal reminders for all hardware and software maintenance agreements, meaning that optimising the lifecycle cost of assets has never been easier.

smartCLOUD provides users with a scalable and cost-effective Software and Services delivery platform, which gives customers the ability to utilise a full suite of market leading SAAS business applications on a per user per month cost basis via the Internet. This allows businesses to centrally buy, deploy and manage industry standard Cloud-based solutions in minutes and receive one easy to understand monthly itemised bill for usage.

smartEA is a password-protected online information portal, which helps busineses manage their Microsoft Enterprise Agreements by conveniently providing them with all the information needed to manage the complete three-year lifecycle of their licencing agreement from one place.

smartEPP is an Employee Purchase Programme (EPP) scheme which enables staff to get discounts on products and services from over 600 of the world’s leading technology manufacturers for your staff.

The launch marks the first major update for Insight online in 2013, as the company looks to boost its online portfolio via further smartTOOLs integration and the combination of hardware and software shopping experiences.

Ashley Gatehouse, EMEA VP Marketing for Insight, explained that the launches were designed to strengthen the solid relationships Insight has with its clients. By providing them with intuitive business optimisation tools, FREE at the point of use, it helps firms to manage their IT estate and enhance business experiences.

He added: “While the new website provides a stylish interface, the smartTOOLS suite of services is the next step in the evolution of our re-imagining of the online client experience, where greater degrees of 24/7 self-service and access to rich information and real-time provisioning will enhance our clients’ capability to optimise their IT operations and maximise the return on their technology assets.

“Having said this, we will never lose site of the human element and the vital part it plays in our working lives. Office Champ is Insight’s way of recognising this.”
