Cost-reducing OEM Upgrades
An OEM upgrade with GTC can help you reduce costs by acquiring your pull-out system and spares inventory.
In order to assist the evaluation of your surplus systems, you must:
- List all installed hardware in the panel
- List all spares in stock
- List all damaged / failed hardware in stock
