When it comes to “doing more for less” 3rd Party Maintenance is the first choice for most of the IT managers globally. More and more companies are now finding new and innovative ways to reduce costs and to increase the life of their CAPEX. Although service providers are the ideal choice by default when it comes to new equipment, there are several areas to consider when the initial service agreements are expired. The point is “why to pay more, when you can get the same quality of support and spares with customized SLA for less” and Evernex can provide top quality services ensuring cost savings and benefits at a fraction of the price.
Please find below benefits of implementing 3rd party maintenance for your company:
1. Single Point of Contact
Generally a 3rd party service provider is a single point of contact for all your support and spare requests which eliminates the lack of accountability that can occur when dealing with multiple service providers. This will eventually lead to reducing waste of time and paperwork to a much more manageable level. We also offer online contract management to further simplify the process.
2. Best Support
3rd party support vendors offer a wide range of choices and service levels agreements. They provide 24/7/365 on-site performance and technical helpdesk support. The common service agreements offering options include:

6. Guaranteed savings from day one
3rd party maintenance companies do not have to make huge investments like the OEM’s into hardware research and development, it helps them to keep costs considerably low. To ensure that that the ROI is achieved, the manufacturer sales teams are encouraged to sell new hardware rather than promoting the extension of the already installed hardware, consequently, manufacturers will increase the cost of post-warranty service in order for them to be able to sell more new hardware to its users.
