Whether you’re doing a complete technology refresh, shopping for a new server or wading through the complexities of software licensing, Directec provides the pre-sales technical research and procurement support to ensure your organization’s long-term success.
Example questions we can answer:
What model, and how many, Cisco wireless access points would I need to cover my x by x warehouse?
What is the current Lenovo desktop model that offers a small footprint, an Intel I7 processor, 4 GB RAM and a 500GB hard disk drive?
What is my products forecasted end-of-life? (manufacturers provide us with a roadmap indicating how long certain models will be in their product line prior to replacing it with a new model)
How do I choose the right HP® server for my datacenter?
Sounds simple, but it’s not. There are over a hundred models available, including tower and rack options (1U, 2U and 3U). Even if you have a manufacturer in mind, you need to make decisions about how many processors and cores you need, your total memory requirements, how that memory should be configured, how much storage is necessary—on which disks and levels—and how you plan to control your storage management. Fortunately, you don’t need to become an expert. We already are.
How do I approach Microsoft® Office purchases, upgrades and licensing?
Directec is here to help you untangle the complexity of software licensing and compliancy. We can help you decide on the right product type (OEM versus volume licenses or Office 365), and explain the user rights associated with each. We can also help determine if you qualify for special pricing, based on your organizational structure and number of users. When it comes to software options, we can help you zero in on what’s right for you.
How do I ensure I’m purchasing the right desktops and laptops?
Choosing the right PCs for your organization is no easy task. With hundreds of choices, it’s easy to get lost in the details. We can help you decide between desktops and laptops, and even help you choose which mobile workstations are right for you—whether traditional laptops, hybrid 2-in-1 technology or Ultrabooks. Even if you know the brand you want, we can guide you through configuration, OS selection, capacity choices, warranty options, docking stations, batteries and other accessories that are often overlooked. We’ll make sure you’ve got all you need to increase everyday efficiency.
