Supply issues driving the price of business hardware through the roof

Margin mugging, a practice whereby businesses purchase products with heavily inflated margins, was rampant in the IT industry last year, a report from managed IT services firm Probrand suggests.

As reported by The Register, the firm analyzed $6.6 million worth of hardware bought by businesses in the three months before the pandemic, as well as the rest of 2020. It found that the mean average margin rose to 50.84 percent during the pandemic, up from 9.4 percent in the quarter before.
