Park Place Technologies, a provider of hardware maintenance for IT data centers supporting over 58,000 data centers in more than 150 countries, has introduced a ‘First-Time Fix Guarantee.’ If a return trip is needed to correct the same issue on the same device serial number within five days, clients will be credited for one month of maintenance and ‘ParkView Hardware Monitoring’ on that device.
“Organizations know the frustration and business problems that IT outages can cause, hence the opportunity to reduce the impact of data center outages will be welcomed,” said Tony Lock, Director of Engagement & Distinguished Analyst, Freeform Dynamics. “But to be able to guarantee such levels of service requires an IT company that not only has large, effective engineering and logistics capabilities, it must also be innovative to ensure it has the tools and processes its customers can rely on, 24×7.”
The First-Time Fix Guarantee is free as part of a Park Place Technologies maintenance contract when devices are supported by the company’s ParkView Hardware Monitoring.
1.1 Million Spare Parts
The new program would highlight Park Place’s commitment to uptime. It is a centerpiece of the company’s service offering, which is anchored by one of the world’s largest teams of field service engineers averaging 15+ years of OEM experience. Park Place Technologies maintains an inventory of more than 1.1 million spare parts to support over 110,000 data centers globally. Park Place utilizes a 24/7/365 service model to ensure customers always have access to a service representative.
“At Park Place Technologies, our goal is to drive a simple, personalized customer experience that allows our customers to remain fully focused on running their business,” said Chris Adams, President and CEO of Park Place Technologies. “As we continue our journey to creating a new tier of third-party maintenance provider, we’re proud of our 97% customer satisfaction rating and are committed to helping companies maximize the uptime and efficiency of their IT infrastructures.”
Boosting Data Center Uptime
ParkView Hardware Monitoring includes a fully automated maintenance service that streamlines the hardware support process and helps data centers boost uptime. ParkView Hardware Monitoring would reduce the number of touchpoints between clients and a maintenance solution to two easy steps. ParkView’s detailed triage takes the guesswork out of the equation, collecting real-time, accurate information. This would lead to faster and more accurate fixes. When a Park Place field engineer arrives, the engineer is empowered with “accurate and detailed” information, such as part numbers and device model number.
Park Place’s services also include Central Park, an industry leading customer portal delivering a single pane of glass for all service needs. It includes ParkView Input Portal (PVIP), which enables customers to self-install ParkView onto their hardware infrastructure, and for example also PPT Tech Mobile – a mobile app that enables customers to remotely manage their data center maintenance account.
