Does this sound familiar? You have four employees who perform a variety of tasks: Quoting price and delivery times. Taking orders by phone and arranging fulfillment from your suppliers Answering customer support e-mails Maintaining customer databases. Creating newsletters and product/service information sheets. And the list goes on any given busy day.
Then this happens: Your $500 office server goes down, leaving them unable to do their work.
You could do one of two things:
- Purchase a new server for $500. But it will take at least two days to receive it, load and test all your software and get back online.
- Purchase per-event on-site repair services—but tomorrow is the earliest a technician can be dispatched to your site. Getting you up and running again will cost a minimum of $1,000, even if no parts need to be replaced. Factor in the fact that you also pay your employees an average of $25 per hour. $25 X 4 employees X 8 hours = $800 more down the drain.
Or consider a better option: HP Care Pack Services
What if you had purchased a $300, 3-year HP Care Pack Service at the time you purchased the server? Instead of a drop in productivity, an HP-certified engineer could be on-site fixing the problem within hours of your call. The same would be true for any incident over a 3-year term of service, saving you potentially several $1,000+ emergency repair bills and the associated lost productivity costs.
