Superior Solutions. Proven Results.
Buying equipment online?
Weigh the benefits before you fill your cart. 
Price is a factor when it comes to purchasing items like electronic devices. It’s tempting to select your favorite brands online for lower prices, but it may not be the best choice when you consider a couple of factors:

  • Service. The ability to contact a technical support engineer with product knowledge can make set up, deployment and maintenance less costly and more convenient over the life of the device. It’s likely you won’t get that kind of service from an online source. 
  • Gray Market Products. Often the case with lower-than-market pricing, gray market products may have entered the channel via an unauthorized reseller. If the product was sourced outside approved channels, it will not be eligible for warranty repair, service or even technical support. 

TDS is dedicated to serving small and medium-sized businesses who have limited IT resources. Choosing to do business with a solution provider vs. an online reseller makes good business sense in the long run. Don’t be fooled by low up-front costs. Learn more about the benefits a full-service provider can offer you in this month’s blog.

Service Contracts: Do or Don’t? 
It’s wise to weigh the pros and cons of purchasing a service plan based on lifetime value of the product and how it is being used. For lower-priced items like a handheld scanner, it may be difficult to achieve a desirable return. Mobile computers, tablets and industrial barcode printers, however, are good candidates for service plans due to the level of throughput and expected life of the device. Honeywell’s Edge Service protects devices on the Mobility Edge platform, regardless of form factor, offering increased flexibility throughout the enterprise. Other advantages include:

  • Ability to uniformly manage multiple devices
  • Easily predict service costs and accurately budget expenses
  • Eliminate hidden costs associated with delayed deployment, managing multiple brands, replacing batteries or damaged devices

Contact our service team or your sales rep to learn more about service options, what our customers have experienced, and how you can save by leveraging service plans for your fleet of devices.
Cleaning Your Devices
During this time of crisis, we are laser focused on hygiene. Handwashing, social distancing, masks and gloves are all part of our daily lives now. Did you know that cleaning the devices and equipment you use is just as important as washing your hands? But you can’t just use any old cleaner to get the job done. It’s important to follow manufacturer guidelines to help prevent damaging the housing with harsh chemicals. Click the link below for Honeywell’s guidelines for safely cleaning their devices.
