What many companies do not know, especially in the SME segment, is that there are very good alternatives to classic manufacturer maintenance. These alternatives are called TPM (Third Party Maintenance). A TPM company is a manufacturer of independent maintenance providers that specializes in hardware maintenance with its own technicians, spare parts warehouses and logistics. In other words, a TPM is a maintenance specialist that is not tied to the End of Life dates. As long as the hardware specialist still has enough spare parts in stock, they can also offer hardware maintenance. As a rule, TPM companies can maintain and support hardware for at least seven to ten years after the EOL expires.
One of these TPM companies is Hardwarewatung.com. With more than 45 spare parts warehouses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, they can not only offer EOL hardware maintenance throughout the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). They can even guarantee service levels of up to four hours (Call-to-Repair), 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
