PRE-CONFIGURED TO YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS
CDW's industry-leading 30,000 sq. ft Configuration Centre is at the heart of the NDC.
We have a range of pre-delivery configuration services to help ensure that upon arrival, your hardware and software is ready to use, and your team can be productive almost immediately, freeing up your IT department and significantly reducing project delivery timelines.
SUPPLY CHAIN CHALLENGES
It’s important that the people who manage your customers' configuration have experience and knowledge of the task at hand. If they don’t, it’s easy to fall off schedule, leading to loss of revenue and productivity.
In-house IT staff are less likely to have the experience necessary for a configuration project, resulting in slower, less efficient deployments. Plus, configuration takes time away from higher-level projects. Let the experts, with the infrastructure to match, do the work.
It’s not uncommon for new technology to arrive with issues that need to be resolved. When replacing problematic equipment, the shipping costs alone can become a serious budgetary concern. We deal with the DOA equipment quickly behind the scenes, in the majority of cases with zero delays.
Businesses with multiple locations and an international reach have to either send their configuration team to each of their sites or re-ship their devices to secondary locations after configuring them in-house. Both options have financial and logistical implications.
BUSINESS OUTCOMES YOU CAN EXPECT
Our comprehensive IT configuration services ensure that upon arrival, your hardware and software is ready to use.
IT asset management and installation delays users who just want to plug in and get to work. Our Configuration Centre helps ensure that new hardware and software supports, rather than hinders, your team. Pre-delivery configuration of your devices at our Configuration Centre enhances your business agility, ensuring equipment arriving at your sites is ready for users to start working with.
CDW's team of Consulting and Transition Technicians can work with you to design, test, and implement the right solutions for your organisation.
- Peer-review process: any job completed within the Configuration Centre is quality checked by another technician from the team.
- Our Configuration Centre allows you to run comprehensive testing programmes on critical data centre or infrastructure equipment prior to shipping.
- For very specific operational requirements, our consultant technicians create a tailored build process, allowing us to configure to your precise needs.
