Networking, data storage and servers are the foundation of your IT infrastructure. If any part of your system is compromised the results can be catastrophic. 

We understand your concern in moving from the manufacturer to third party maintenance and support. OEMs have done a remarkable job of creating products and services, with the illusion of complete dependence on them. Their agenda prioritizes profits over everything else. Our team can help you reduce cost and put your mind at ease regarding your concerns over risk. 

You may feel trapped into overpaying for costly OEM warranties, end-of-life, support and software upgrades. We’ve got a better way! SMARTCARE offers a safe, smart, price-minded choice taking you from the hot seat to the driver’s seat.

In short, we know where the “fluff” is and how the manufacturers make their money. We also know where they don’t deliver. We offer custom solutions that work for your business. We have the pricing data to back it up.
