“Accurate EOL and EOSL dates across multiple vendors can be difficult to find and often sneak up on buyers in the form of hardware refresh calls from the OEM,” said Joshua Leatherman, Chief Marketing Officer, Service Express.

Service Express customers have experienced difficulties in finding EOL and EOSL dates for equipment. The EOL & EOSL database would make it simpler for users to search for the dates based on the product name, model or part number. This information is important as it influences IT decisions about original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and third-party maintenance strategies, hardware refreshes and asset life cycles.

“Accurate EOL and EOSL dates across multiple vendors can be difficult to find and often sneak up on buyers in the form of hardware refresh calls from the OEM,” said Joshua Leatherman, Chief Marketing Officer, Service Express. “This tool is a one-stop resource where users can better understand the next steps if their equipment is approaching EOL or EOSL.”
