As a growing enterprise, you are dependent on accurate and timely information to manage clients, inventories, communications, and employee matters. Your IT system must always run smoothly and securely, without interruption, while staying current with all business-enhancing innovations.
Some larger companies depend on an Information Technology Departments staffed with a full complement of skilled technicians assigned to be ready to respond to system failures, security issues, and communication breakdowns. While this strategy may work for those outsized enterprises, maintaining a trained staff of IT professionals presents an insurmountable financial burden for most businesses.
What About the Support and Coverage Provided by the Original Manufacturer?
While under warranty, your original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are expected to provide support to keep their equipment running smoothly. Since maintenance is not their primary objective, service emergencies can often take a backseat to other clients or sales activities.
Also, when you have several types of IT equipment from different manufacturers, as most companies do, you may be struggling to manage many multiple OEM contracts and warranties.
It’s important to mention that selling new equipment is what keeps the OEMs running; so, keeping your older equipment functioning is not their priority. Rather than extend a service contract, OEM representatives will pressure you to buy a new replacement.
The Benefits of Partnering with a Qualified Third-Party Maintenance Company
Suppose you reach a point in which your existing equipment is working well, but your OEM maintenance contract runs out. While your OEM representative will begin to pitch new and expensive equipment, it’s your hope to allocate your resources to more productive endeavors, such as product rollouts, sales, customer service, marketing, and other efforts contributing to top and bottom-line growth.
A third-party IT maintenance company (TPM) can offer you a tailored, 24-hour program that keeps your systems running smoothly and securely, without the expense of in-house support professionals.
Here are only some of the advantages to choosing a professional outside company to maintain and monitor your IT systems:
- Tailored IT Services Programs: Save Time and Money
Pay only for the services you need.
