Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM AS/400 9406-730

When a manufacturer stops providing support for 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 stretch your initial investment and keep the product working longer by using TPM.
If your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrading your hardware, you don’t need to feel rushed into a decision. You can use TPM to help you continue using your existing equipment. When you’re ready, you can upgrade slowly by preparing for the transition and getting your finances in order.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to OEM parts. This can be a problem because the quality of the parts may not be as good. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who perform the repairs will be experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
You can avoid paying too much for post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. TPM companies offer similar skills at a much lower price. Plus, they may offer a more comprehensive or personalized scope of work than your OEM. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. While an upgrade will still be necessary at some point, TPM can help delay it.
OEMs specialize in making equipment. TPM programs can focus on what your company needs. They might be able to fix the equipment in a way that creates little down time for you or offer more services for a better price. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even mix and match between OEM and TPM support if it works better for your company.
