Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM 16-SLOT FC-4GB DISK EXPANSION (TS7700)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has a lot of its original value, and if it works for your company, it is convenient to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any glaring issues with the hardware or problems with its place in your company’s infrastructure, you can continue to use the product for longer by using TPM.
If your hardware is about to reach its end-of-service life (EoSL) but your company doesn’t have much extra money to spend on upgrades, don’t worry. You can continue to use your existing equipment with the help of TPM. This will give you time to upgrade when you’re ready and prepared. You can also make sure you have the finances in order before purchasing new equipment.
If you are repairing your own hardware, you may not have access to OEM parts. In this case, you will need to find less-than-trustworthy manufacturers to get the parts you need. However, working with TPM will give you access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians performing the repairs are experts in the field and may be more familiar with the equipment than in-house techs.
You can save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. They have much lower prices than OEMs and their skill set is similar. In addition, the scope of work with TPM may be more expansive or personalized than what is offered by your OEM. You also get to push back the cost of new equipment. While an upgrade will still be necessary at some point, TPM can help keep it at bay.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus on the needs of your company. A good TPM program can offer services that create as little downtime as possible. You also have the option to purchase only the services you need from a TPM program. And if you want, you can even mix and match OEM and TPM support to fit your business.
