Maintenance & Support

You want to protect the investment you've made in your technology. A maintenance plan just makes sense to guarantee you're covered no matter what happens. The OEMs suggest you cover everything with their one-size-fits-all support offering, but how do you right-size your support so you're not paying for more than you need?

One size does not fit all - you have options! CXtec's third-party maintenance offering provides guaranteed next-business-day advance hardware replacement at a fraction of the cost of those OEM programs. We call it RapidCare® because that's exactly what you get - the technology you need in a hurry.

It's all about attaching the right maintenance to the right technologies. Click here to learn more about how CXtec can be a part of your hybrid support strategy.

Technology @ Your Pace®

What is Technology @ Your Pace? It's the simple promise that CXtec is dedicated to helping you implement the right solutions for your unique needs. Our philosophy lets you decide what's best for your technology infrastructure - what to implement, when to upgrade, and when to maintain your current investment. We strive to help you simplify the buying process and reduce the cost of your infrastructure, while ensuring the quality your organization needs to succeed.
