Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM PCI-E 12-SLOT SFF DISK I/O DRAWER (FC 5873)

Even if the manufacturer no longer provides support for a product, it doesn’t mean that the product is useless. In fact, it still has a lot of its original value. If the product works for your company, it is a good idea to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can use it for longer by implementing TPM.
If your hardware is reaching its end-of-service life and your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you don’t need to worry. You can continue to use your existing equipment with the help of TPM. This will give you time to prepare for the transition and get your finances in order before purchasing new equipment.
If you are fixing your own hardware, you may not have access to parts from the original manufacturer. This can be a problem because the replacements may not be trustworthy. 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 save money by working with a TPM company instead of an OEM company. TPM companies have lower prices and the same skill set. You may also get more work done for the same price with a TPM company. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. An upgrade will be necessary at some point, but TPM can help delay it.
TPM programs can help your company more than OEMs. TPM programs might be able to do a repair that has little downtime or offer more services for a better price. You also have the option of choosing only the services you need from TPM programs. If that doesn’t fit your business, you can also create a hybrid model with some aspects of OEM and TPM support.
