Legacy system support – no rise in price
A key point here is that our maintenance prices remain constant the older your equipment is. Conversely, when dealing direct with OEM, you may find that the opposite is true.
Most of our customers have genuine reasons for using legacy systems. These reasons include:
- Applications that run an older version of IOS. Therefore, needing to keep using older hardware models.
- Short term contracts for specific projects. These may have a limited lifespan, and older equipment will do the job just fine.
- It may be costly to re-train technical staff on newer IOS levels
Many older systems are now being refused OEM support. This is often a tactic used to force a migration to more modern equipment, hence a further outlay of cost. We understand that you DO have a choice and that you don’t have to go out to buy the latest and greatest. If it works fine, why not keep it a while, safe in the knowledge that if the worst happens, you’re covered anyway – at a fraction of the cost!
