Data centers and IT require a lot of equipment. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Cisco (News - Alert), Juniper, Dell, Oracle and IBM have got your equipment needs covered. But when it comes to support for that equipment, many companies are realizing alternative maintenance providers are the ones to turn to.
XS International is an IT services company that specializes in cross-platform OEM and alternative IT maintenance, data center consolidation, data center relocation, IT asset disposition and IT hardware and software sales. It has worked with a variety of industries and with organizations of all sizes, including nine of the Fortune Top 10 and 20 of the Top 20 Federal Prime Contractors. XSi helps federal agencies, contractors, universities and the commercial sector stretch their IT budgets without compromising quality or responsiveness.
The IT maintenance provider was recently awarded another five-year extension on its U.S. General Services Administration (GSA (News - Alert)) IT Schedule 70 GS-35F-0751M, entering its 11th year as a GSA contract holder, with its new contract period ending September 2, 2017.
“With the Obama Administration’s directive to cut budgets by 10 percent it’s quite clear why over 25 federal agencies are using our Alternative 3rd Party Maintenance,” stated Todd Bone, founder and chairman of XS International. “Our sales team has been inundated with requests from agencies to learn more via our webinars. They want to make sure that they properly research competition to the manufacturer’s costly maintenance programs in order to write RFQs that not only allow for, but encourage this competition.”
XS International has been servicing both commercial and federal agencies for over 20 years, and was also recently recognized for the second year in a row as a fast growing Inc. 5000 company.
“Agencies are renewing their contracts not only for the 20-30 percent cost savings over OEM prices, but, because they are finding many value added benefits. They are consistently complimenting us for faster response times by our certified technicians who are U.S. based, and not outsourced overseas like most of the manufacturers call center agents. In addition, we provide maintenance on end-of-life and end-of-service products so agencies don’t have to replace perfectly good equipment just because the manufacturer won’t support it anymore,” added Bone.
To find out why federal agencies are choosing alternative IT maintenance solutions, register for XS International’s upcoming webinar, “Federal Agencies are Choosing Alternative IT Maintenance – What They Know and What you Should Find Out,” on Wednesday, September 26 at 2:00 p.m. EDT.
