The maintenance contract is critical to the network as every minute of downtime impacts the bottom line. And while clients know, and budget for, the cost of the annual renewal, the benefits of the OEM contracts aren’t evaluated annually.  Are they an efficient use of OpEx? Or are premiums being paid just to maintain eligibility for software updates that may or may not be necessary?

Maintenance Contract Renewal Checklist

A comprehensive third-party solution, NetGuard can cover all OEM brands under a single contract, allowing clients to continue to maintain their networks without being forced by the OEM into costly unnecessary upgrades. NetGuard offers a customized solution with savings of as much as 50-90% on equipment maintenance and network support without the pressure or hassle from the OEM.

In addition to cost savings, NetGuard also affords customers options for end of life (EOL) equipment and CloudSparingTM, the 24x7x0 solution.  Equipment is designed to last far longer than the OEM will support it. Worldwide Supply helps customers maintain their existing network for years without the pressure from the OEM to upgrade.  And when a network goes down, isn’t it critical to have replacement inventory on-site since every second counts? CloudSparingTM, increases efficiency while reducing inventory costs.
