When you Know Your Source® for networking hardware you get added value, ease, assurance, and ability – so today we’d like to show the benefits of working with a partner with true stability.
Does it really matter how long a networking hardware vendor has been in business? Is there any real value in stability? We would argue yes there is.
The proof is in the experience pudding.
The first thing to keep in mind is that with experience comes expertise. The longer a company has been around, the more problems it has helped to solve, and the more knowledge it has acquired. This is important.
The last situation you’d ever want to deal with is a vendor who shrugs its shoulders when you have a question or a need. Ideally, your partner should be able to respond to any query you have by saying, “We’ve experienced this before and we know just how to help you.” Can you really count on that response if your vendor has only been around a short time?
Fly By Night is only cool when it’s the Rush album.
There are a lot of “fly by night” vendors out there. The potential to make money quickly by selling network hardware draws all sorts of people to the game, and not all of them are reliable.
Some companies crop up and disappear within months. They look to grab a few bucks and then they’re gone faster than you can say, “Neil Peart rules!” So your best bet is to ask any potential vendors how long they’ve been around and choose to work with the proven, experienced one. Limit your “Fly By Night” experiences to when you’ve got the album on the old turntable giving you that sweet sound only vinyl can provide.
When the going gets tough…
The current economic situation is troubling at best. Wouldn’t you feel more comfortable working with a partner that has weathered a few storms? Someone that understands ups and downs, and has helped customers through both good times and hard times?
A proven partner who has true stability doesn’t cringe when times get tough. They find creative new ways to help you save money, and help you get the best return on your networking hardware investment. And they stand by you, answering questions and providing expertise, even when you have to stretch your budget to the max.
How do we know all this?
CXtec was founded in 1978 – a real lifetime in this business. We formed our equal2new brand of certified, pre-owned networking hardware and phones in 1995, giving it the longest tenure of any pre-owned brand in the industry.
We understand how stability can help customers achieve their goals with added peace of mind. Believe us when we say that it’s better to put your faith in a partner you can count on in the long run. We’ve seen too many folks get burned by some untrustworthy vendors.
Keep in mind that the real lesson here is to always make sure you Know Your Source to get true stability from your network hardware vendor.
