XSi believes that IT asset lifecycle management services and hardware infrastructure maintenance agreements should no longer be rooted in two-dimensional perspectives – whether by an OEM, another IT lifecycle management vendor or another 3rd party hardware support provider. Instead, it must be about an unmatched level of transparency with clients, identifying and truly understanding critical business obstacles. From there, XSi team members must always possess the drive and the agility to truly collaborate with each client to establish custom solutions that positively impact IT lifecycle management burdens, operational efficiencies, data security, hardware OpEx & CapEx, labor usage and a remarkable level of assurance.
