IBM Warranty Extension & Hardware Support Services

When it comes to third party IBM hardware maintenance and support, Quest International should be your vendor of choice. If you are at the end of your original IBM warranty and are trying to determine whether to renew your contract with IBM, or if you are working to discover how you will support your End of Service Life (EOSL) IBM servers and storage, you should speak with the experts at Quest. Our IBM extended maintenance contracts provide you with the highest level of service you would expect from the original manufacturer combined with the cost savings you should expect from a third party provider.

Quest International enables users of IBM servers and data storage equipment to maximize their Return on Investment by managing the cost of ownership with an IBM hardware extended warranty. With Quest, you can extend the service life of your hardware with an IBM warranty extension or maintenance contract – and achieve significant savings over the OEM's extended warranty contract. Quest also provides aftermarket hardware support of other Host Systems like NetApp, HP, SUN Oracle, EMC and Dell.

In the past, restrictive post warranty hardware support pricing and end of life dates may have put serious constraints on your ability to get the maximum value out of the IBM hardware you are currently using. You may have even been forced into replacing your current IBM server or storage before you were ready to refresh your hardware.

Your IBM warranty should not dictate the End of Life of your IBM hardware support.

By increasing your IBM hardware maintenance, you increase your return on investment and reduce additional capital expenditures. Take advantage of Quest's Global IBM hardware service solution, maximize your return on investment, and use your financial resources more effectively.

QuestNet℠ HITAM (Hosted IT Asset Management)

Today's IT organizations are responsible for hundreds, if not thousands, of servers, PCs, mobile phones, peripherals and other devices. Many departments are without the proper tools to effectively provide IT Asset Management tied to incident reports and critical infrastructure issues. Often, time is wasted managing service contract renewals for each manufacturer, tracking down service resolution updates from service providers and physically locating deployed assets. Your time is just too valuable to be putting out fires.

Its interface streamlines IT operations by eliminating inefficiencies – allowing users to achieve their organizational goals, without the risk and expense associated with traditional software deployments. Furthermore, QuestNet is a cloud-based solution – so you don't have to worry about updates, patches, or system computer compatibility. With QuestNet, businesses can focus on the things that matter most: uptime, customer satisfaction, productivity, and growth.
