In our last IBM-related post, we talked about how despite the IBM System x3550, IBM System x3650 M3 and IBM BladeCenter HS22 servers being discontinued by the manufacturer; we were still a viable source for these products. And while we have made our name by being a great source for hard-to-find, end-of-life equipment, we think a crucial element of our IBM business may have been unintentionally kept a secret – but hey everybody, we do new too!
Not only do we do new, but we’re an excellent, affordable alternative to the slow and often costly IBM business partner channel. One thing that really sets us apart is our ability to offer great discounts to our customers without requiring a minimum sale price. As a big buyer in the market, we’re able to pass our buy-in-bulk savings down to all of our customers. Another bonus is that in situations where a traditional business partner may have to wait weeks on one obscure part, we can ship out orders two to three weeks faster on average, translating to time, money, and resources saved!
So what’s the “So what? Why does it matter to me part?” Well, two things that you will definitely care about are getting products you need faster, and at a better price. Plus, not having to go two different places to get quotes for both refurbished and new IBM product options will cut your time finding sources and getting quotes in half, and who doesn’t need a few more hours in their work day?
