There are numerous companies which act as an IBM distributor and it can be quite difficult to decide which company to purchase from. The cheapest price is not always the best option – this is of course the situation with many of life’s products. Just because the Western world is in the middle of what many consider to be a financial crisis does not mean that it is cost effective to go with the cheapest option – to do this could in fact cost you additional money in the future. So what are the most important aspects to keep in mind when choosing the appropriate company? Well this is the question that I will be attempting to answer in this article.
Professional and ongoing customer service is something that I would imagine that most of you would expect to receive from the majority of companies in this business sector; unfortunately this is not always the case. To this end it is prudent to read through some of the previous customers testimonials or client reviews. But aren’t these just fake in any case Steve? Good question – I suppose you could have certain underhand webmasters who include fake reviews however the bigger, more established, companies are unlikely to risk their reputation in this way – not that they will need to do so in any case.
A quick delivery service may not be one of your primary concerns however any company worth its salt within this industry should offer this.
Competitive pricing is always a must within the HP distributor and IBM distributor sector but again competitive does not always mean cheapest; a quality product will of course come at a certain cost.
Finally I always like to choose a company that has an order tracking service. By doing this I feel some what more secure in the buying process which is a must in my busy daily schedule.
