OurService Level Agreements
TansTech offers a variety of Service Level Agreement options that allow you to choose a solution that fits your business’ needs and budget.
There are no penalties for adding or deleting equipment on your contract, so you can adjust your SLA penalty-free anytime. Our 24 x 7 x 365 phone support is standard across all SLAs, and we assign a certified to all support tickets within thirty minutes of submission.
We can also create a custom SLA to reflect your unique maintenance needs. For instance, four-hour response time means we are on site with the part in hand, and NBD means parts are guaranteed to arrive before noon on the following business day.
The TansTech customer portal hosts all your contract information (SLA, nicknames, S/N, etc.) and allows you to submit trouble tickets online. Our team monitors the trouble ticket system around the clock and will ensure a quick resolution to your issue.
Choosing the Right SLA (IT Service Level Agreement)
Every data center is different. That’s why CentricsIT offers flexible IT service level agreement options. Our support packages can accommodate any amount of data center support you require.
When choosing an SLA, think about the machines you are looking to place under support. Are they mission-critical? Is it legacy equipment or the latest and greatest? Is a failover design in place? The answers to these types of questions will determine how quickly you will need a spare when a part goes bad and whether or not you will need an onsite. You’ll also want to consider your budget. For instance, 4-hour response is more expensive than NBD response; and if you have technical resources in , you can save money with an SLA that does not require an onsite .
Regardless of your needs and current resources, CentricsIT will consult with you and suggest the best plan. We can even create a custom plan that is tailored to your specific needs. We’ll work within your budget and timeframe to craft the most effective SLA possible. Our 24 x 7 x 365 phone support is standard across all SLAs, and below you will see some common SLA breakdowns. But these don’t even begin to encompass the level of SLA customization CentricsIT offers. You can pick and choose from the SLAs below or create one all your own. With CentricsIT, you are in control of how your maintenance dollars are allocated.
OEM vs. Third-Party IT Maintenance
You have multiple products in your data center, and when major downtime occurs, there is no guarantee that only one manufacturer’s machine is the culprit. Rather than dealing with multiple OEMs and referencing numerous contracts with different SLAs, turn to CentricsIT, a third-party maintenance provider. When you sign one simple contract with CentricsIT, we take care of everything. We’re qualified to support all the major manufacturers, including: IBM, Cisco, Dell, EMC, HP, Sun Oracle, and others. Imagine—one phone number, one call, one point of contact for every data center issue.
A recent statistic put out by IBM indicated that, on average, 70% of a company’s IT budget is spent on maintenance. In today’s economic climate, is it worth it to pay a premium for OEM maintenance support? Is it worth paying more each year for equipment that just keeps getting older? Is it worth paying top dollar for cookie-cutter SLAs and stagnant customer service? We don’t think so. CentricsIT third-party maintenance services will save you 40-70% on your IT costs. We guarantee that you will pay the same price for the same level of service through the life of your equipment—even as it ages; and from customized support solutions to a personal account manager, you’ll gain value in every area of your maintenance plan.
Most OEMs feature contract terms that benefit them—not you. Our solutions are designed to make your life easier with flexible terms and conditions. In addition to our standard SLAs, which already beat out the OEMs’, CentricsIT will create a service level specific to your needs. Need different SLAs for mission-critical equipment? No problem. Need an available on weekends? Easy. Need an working in your data center 24/7? Done. With CentricsIT support services, it really is that easy.
We know that time is precious when something goes wrong in the data center. But with the OEM, you could wait almost four hours just for a technician to get back to you about your ticket. With CentricsIT, we’ll diagnose the problem and have a part on site within four hours.
