MITS - WORKSTATION

Workstations come in a variety of types and sizes that meet different business needs. Would your business work best or more effectively with Windows, OS X, or Chrome workstation? Apple and Chrome? A lot of businesses are using more than Windows to get the job done efficiently and effectively. The right tool for the job and employee. Regardless of what type of workstation you choose for your employees, we can monitor and support it to ensure your employees have the tools to get the job done. Maybe you don’t want workstations, maybe it’s a virtual desktop that would work best for your employees. We support that too.

What’s included?
· New Equipment
· Co-authoring of an acceptable computer operating environment image
· Receiving of computers at Dymaxion
· Deployment of the co-authored image to workstations
· Deployment services of replacement equipment
· Migration of data from old computer to new
· Old Equipment
· Secure destruction of information containing components (Hard Disks)

· Monitoring during normal working hours of 8am-5pm Atlantic Time Monday through Friday
· Support and Monitoring lets us know when your workstation needs help. We’ll know when your disk is too full, you’re running out of memory, or if your network connection or CPU is too busy. We’ll be able to fix it before it becomes a problem.
· Event log monitoring allows us to tell when the Operating System or other software that you have running on your workstation is working normally or is having problems. We will monitor your event logs so that we know when we need to take corrective measures to keep your workstation hardware and software healthy.
· Workstation alerting notifies us when your workstation is showing signs of being unhealthy. We will know when we need to complete maintenance or take corrective actions to prevent your workstation from crashing or not operating normally.
· Maintenance lets us keep your workstation running at peak performance. Workstations need work, just like your car. We’ll run maintenance plans weekly during a time when you’re not using your workstations so that your workstation hardware software is current, disks stay fast, hardware patches are applied, overall - making sure your workstation stays healthy.
· Operating System Updating lets us keep your workstation up to date with the manufacturer's latest fixes, security updates and features. We’ll run software updates weekly during a time when you’re not using your workstation. Typically, the manufacturer releases these updates on a weekly basis to make sure that any known/resolved software defects and bugs in the software get applied in a timely manner. If we don’t apply these fixes on a regular basis, the software manufacturer may not be able to support the operating system software when an incident occurs.
· We inventory your workstation, so we know about all the details of your equipment. We will know when your manufacturer's warranty is about to expire if you can buy an extended warranty. This will help minimize the risks to your organization and plan out workstation hardware upgrades and replacements.
· Which workstation makes the most sense? We work with many top brand workstation manufacturers daily to fulfill workstation requirements and orders for many different organizations. We can work with you and them to identify the right workstations that meet your needs and budget.
· Warranty repairs to workstations will be escalated and completed by the Dymaxion Repair Depot
· Out of Warranty repairs will be escalated and completed by the Dymaxion Repair Depot. Repairs will be completed as if the equipment were under warranty, with the costs of the replacement parts and labour being passed on to the customer. Approval by the customer for the purchasing of the parts and labour will be sought before any purchase of replacement parts has been made. Any out of warranty repairs pose a risk for the customer of being down for an extended period of time. Out of warranty workstations do not always have repair parts readily available and parts are not always available from the manufacturer. Third party repair parts, often without any guarantee of performance, will be sourced from organizations selling on 3rd party vendors.

They publish the dates and describe this event as End of Support (EOS) and End of Life (EOL) date.
