I think it’s safe to say most people like the idea of a nice bit of new technology. Who wouldn’t? It’s shiny ‘n’ new and has more oomph! under the bonnet. But once the initial excitement has worn off a little, the realisation dawns that your existing bit of tech that’s been chugging away for the past few years, needs to have it’s data carefully migrated (if a server) in a managed and controlled way to ensure no disruption to your business.
Changing and upgrading critical infrastructure can exposes serious risk – look at what happened at TSB Bank! By keeping your existing infrastructure ticking along for a few more years, along with a fully-protected extended warranty from Warranty World of course 😉 can provide you and your business peace of mind. The old saying of ‘if it ain’t broke, why fix it?’ hasn’t stuck around for generations for no good reason.
But that’s not all. What about the cost? There’s the significant capital expenditure when purchasing new hardware of course, but also the hidden costs which are too often ignored when considering to buy new, such as the significant time and resources for your staff/contractors to plan, install, configure, migrate and decommission. Even for the most basic of servers for a micro-business you’ll probably be looking at 2 days minimum. And that’s not even factoring in potential downtime to the business. Are you exhausted yet?
Whilst we’d love all our customers to renew their extended warranties with us indefinitely, we are however realistic! There will come a time when the existing hardware is not up to the job, or when parts become harder to source. The fact we see many of our existing customers repeatedly renew year-after-year proves that extending the life of IT hardware beyond the initial 3 years manufacturer’s warranty often makes a lot of sense, both from a business risk and a cost standpoint.
So if you’re considering buying new and replacing, why don’t you obtain a quote for an extended hardware warranty also? Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org for a price. You can then make an informed decision of what is best for your business going forward.
