Are You Ready For Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Posted on Friday, November 2, 2018
The annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales are just a matter of weeks away. Your sales and marketing teams will be in overdrive preparing adverts, offers and incentives to capture your share of an estimated $7.9 billion.
At the same time, your tech team should be testing to confirm you have sufficient capacity in place to support a massive spike in demand from users and customers alike. Otherwise you risk grabbing headlines for all the wrong reasons when systems crash and services go offline.
You need to be sure that storage systems are operating optimally, there’s a reliable supply of OEM-approved spare parts available, and that you have access to high-quality technical support just in case something goes wrong.
It’s not too late to choose a new maintenance provider
If your current storage maintenance contracts are due to expire before the end of the month, you probably assume that your only option is to accept a new, inflated offer from your OEM. But you do still have options.
Third-party server maintenance contracts from CDS are a genuine alternative offering fully-flexible SLAs, perfect for periods of high demand like Black Friday. We also carry a multi-million-dollar OEM-approved spares inventory, ready for delivery and fitting anywhere in the world. And typically for 50% (or less) of your existing maintenance contract price.
Importantly, CDS can complete transition of your maintenance services in a matter of days. There’s no down time involved, and everything is completely ready for the year-end sales rush.
It’s not too late to get your maintenance contracts under control and your systems optimized for Black Friday. Call us today to learn more about how we can help.
