Connected Right procures software and hardware such as PCs/laptops, network gear, and Microsoft licenses. Over the years we have been in business and the customers we have served, we have built a list vendors and manufacturers that we buy from that have given our customer a high level of return on investment. Some of these vendors are as follows:
Dell, Lenovo, Intel, Microsoft Surface
Fortinet, Ubiquiti, Cisco, Ruckus
When it comes to computers, we find that buying cheap is not always the best value. We guide our customers to purchase business-class systems. We believe this is important for several reasons:
- Lifecycle: business-class lines of computers are built to last longer and are supported longer by the manufacturer with firmware and driver updates.
- Quality of build: business-class computers have a higher grade of build and materials, making them less susceptible to damage and failure due to low quality parts.
- Initial Setup Costs: since most consumer-class systems come with Home versions of Windows, we find that the cost to upgrade combined with the labor time it takes to remove the retail/consumer-specific software from the computer build that is pre-installed offsets the costs difference of buying a business-class PC in the first place.
For the customers we work with, we ask that all hardware purchases go through us so we can ensure a supportable product is procured since we will be supporting it once introduced to the IT environment.
