TPM eliminates this problem of replacing Functional Equipment by providing Post-warranty Support for your Current Equipment. They cover Maintenance, Spare Parts Delivery and keep your Hardware functional even if it has been rendered unusable by OEMs. TPMs help retain the operability of Old Equipment in an updated IT ecosystem and provide updates with new Generations of Software wherever possible.

While you might think that opting for these Services can help you retain the Ageing Equipment, the annual increase in Maintenance Cost Structure weighs down on your IT Budget. According to numerous studies conducted on Data Center, your Equipment can remain in Service for up to two / three years or even beyond. With TPMs, you get Affordable Post-warranty Services that increase your Investment Return for that Equipment. With TPM Services to back your Equipment, you get more control over your IT Infrastructure's Expenditure, and you save more.

TPM Engineers have both OEM and TPM Certifications. In addition, they are skilled in maintaining Equipment from Multiple Manufacturers, unlike OEMs, who only cater to one Manufacturer.
