Extended Hardware Warranties

Extended Hardware Warranties

With flexible contracts, mix and match SLA's and certified engineers - we have your business covered.

In times of increased uncertainty organisations are realising it makes good business sense to only upgrade their IT and tech equipment when they need to. When the manufacturer warranty expires, there is often no need to upgrade equipment right away. Yet business-critical hardware needs to be protected to limit any downtime.

Benefits of choosing an extended warranty.

  • Extends the life of existing IT assets.
  • Increases return on investment of existing equipment.
  • Reduces unnecessary upgrade disruption.
  • Service Level Agreement in place for breakdowns.

Extended warranty contracts are also known as break-fix or maintenance contracts. By having an extended warranty in place, you can be confident any issues will be dealt with by a certified engineer. You can choose the level of service which meets your requirements, from how quickly you want an engineer on-site, to providing spare or new parts as within your package.

An extended warranty enables you to focus business investment in other areas, instead of upgrading unnecessarily, protecting you if something does go wrong, and ensuring the problem is fixed quickly.
