Extend the life of IT assets and save up to 70% compared to the manufacturer with cost-effective hardware support from Technical Support Engineers.
Even in times of prosperity, organizations are under pressure to maximize the efficiency of their IT infrastructure while keeping a tight grip on budgets. One innovative solution that keeps gaining greater traction is Third-Party Maintenance—TPM for short. So what’s TPM? And what are its benefits over traditional maintenance models? Let’s take a look.
Third-Party Maintenance is an alternative approach to IT infrastructure support and maintenance. Unlike traditional maintenance models, which often involve expensive contracts with the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), TPM involves partnering with third-party providers to handle the upkeep and repair of an organization’s hardware. TPM providers offer an array of services, including maintenance, hardware support, software updates, and even IT asset management.
Cost savings. TPM can significantly reduce an organization’s IT maintenance expenses. By choosing a TPM provider over a typical OEM contract, Gartner estimates organizations can save an average of 70% on maintenance costs while receiving the same level of service.
Flexibility. TPM providers offer customized maintenance plans that cater to a company’s specific needs, making it possible to choose the level of support that aligns with their budget and requirements.
Extended equipment lifespan. TPM extends the life of IT hardware by providing support beyond the manufacturer’s End of Service Life (EOSL) dates. This lets organizations maximize their investment and delay costly hardware replacements.
Multi-vendor support. TPM providers are vendor-agnostic, meaning they can support a wide range of equipment from various manufacturers, giving businesses the freedom to maintain a diverse IT environment, and the convenience of consolidating all of their IT maintenance needs in a single contract.
While Third-Party Maintenance offers undeniable benefits, choosing the right TPM provider is crucial for a successful partnership. Here are some key considerations:
