Specialising in the distribution of end-of-life data centre and networking hardware, Epoka provides more than 1,000 companies in 120 countries with more than 200,000 items annually. By giving its customers independence from IT product life cycles, the Danish IT distributor allows companies to carry out their hardware upgrades at the most advantageous and efficient time for their business.
With a strong focus on reliable suppliers, quality testing, and a global network of warehouses, Epoka has become a major player within the distribution, sale and purchase of used and new hardware. Founded in 1991, the Danish company today has over 10,000 items in stock, ready for same-day delivery, and is able to service and deliver solutions to companies of different sizes in all sectors. “Many companies depend on new, but to a greater extent also older hardware to run their businesses and customer interaction. Furthermore, with the new EU data protection regulation (GDPR), they have to make sure that all data is securely handled and, when necessary, erased, and that is just one of the things we can do,” explains CCO Jess Bech. “We can help companies upgrade and get rid of their old equipment, in a secure and costefficient way. When dealing with banks, for instance, you have to have a compliant,
responsible and secure approach like we do at Epoka, to handle hardware storing customer data.”
Epoka does not just buy and resell products, but also offers solutions for configuration services to help clients with a larger scale of IT projects like ERP, CRM, data centre capacity upgrades and maintenance. By doing so, the company provides customers with a safe, simple and time-efficient way of extending, maintaining, and optimising their hardware solutions with used or new equipment. For larger data centres and field care technicians, Epoka also offers the Epoka Care solution, through which clients get 24/7 access to spare parts at more than 4,500 warehouses distributed all over the world. “This means that our clients don’t have to keep any stock themselves, and can have their servers, storage and network solutions maintained within just a few hours. It makes sense for all parties – the client can focus on their business and we focus on obtaining the hardware safely, with cost and time efficiency,”
