Maintenance Contract vs. Hot Spares?


How are IT Professionals achieving savings and security?
 


As the person responsible
for ensuring that your company’s Hewlett Packard equipment  remains in top working condition, you know all too well that minor hardware problems can  cause major operational disasters. At Monterey Bay Communications we understand that  your company wants you to maintain 100% system ‘up-time’ while keeping costs as low as possible.   

Typically companies will purchase maintenance and service agreements either directly from Hewlett-Packard or from a third party maintenance provider. The costs associated with these contracts for service can, over several years, equal the amount you originally paid for the equipment.   

Consider the Idea of a 100% Hardware Backup Solution. 

Stocking spare parts can mean the difference between being the hero, or being the person  who tells the boss that the system will be down “indefinitely.”  

In many cases the cost of a service agreement over time can be more than the cost of purchasing an entire back-up system. One customer had been paying for maintenance on a  9000 Series server, and over four years he had experienced no problems with his equipment.  His company wanted to know if there was a way to lessen the cost of their service contract.  After evaluating several options this customer purchased a spare system to back up his current  server for less than the cost of one year of his service contract!  

No two situations are alike, and at Monterey Bay Communications we will carefully examine your specific needs and recommend a program that provides you with the best of both worlds, security and cost effectiveness. If you want peace of mind, within your budget, call Monterey Bay Communications. Let us put our 20 years of experience with  Hewlett Packard equipment to work for your company.
