Cam: ‘Out of Sight, Out of Mind’ Doesn’t Compute With IT Hardware
Cam Systems has warned tyre distributors that too many businesses are taking an “out of sight, out of mind” approach to computer hardware. The company says that because the reliability and consistency of performance of equipment such as servers and desktop PCs is so good, many businesses forget the need for maintenance, upgrading or replacement.
“Servers are a good case in point,” says Steve Daly, Cam’s recently appointed commercial director. “Most hardware is supplied by Cam with a three-year on-site service support contract which provides full cover for the duration of the term. But the problem arises when the three years expires and the Server is effectively unprotected against failure or malfunction.”
