For most businesses, being “Back Up and Running” tomorrow is not fast enough!
In the Global Economy, business is transacted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The need to be “Up and Running” is a vital prerequisite, and “Down Time” costs time, money and customers.
In order to satisfy these demands, businesses have employed sophisticated fault tolerant transaction systems, and redundant data and telecomm networks. Despite the robust design and advanced technology of these systems, failures do occur.
As such, there must be locations nearby from which system vendors or their contractors can withdraw parts and components, and quickly restore operation.
Manufacturing operations also run around the clock. Since the cost of down time in these operations can quickly escalate into the millions of dollars, rapid response critical parts replacement must be readily available.
