UTC 003 – The Business Technology Checklist – Part 2 – The IT Service Contract


The IT Support GuyThe 7+ Things to Consider When Purchasing Service Contracts for Your Business Hardware and Software

In this episode of the Up Tech Creek podcast, we are continuing the business technology checklist.

In this show we are going to explore IT service contracts where you are paying for maintenance and support on the software and hardware that you depend on to run your business.

OK – A Guy Can Change His Mind!

I know I said that Ep 3 was going to be about mobile devices, but something came up recently – I got slammed with a crazy expensive service contract renewal from EMC and really wanted to share the details with you!
