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.
