Business challenge

Mission critical systems require more than ‘next business day’ support contracts

Many of OIA’s customers are trying to save money, free up capital and ensure flexibility in their IT infrastructure; while still delivering to their clients.

“One of the biggest challenges for our clients in Western Australia is the turnaround from their vendors. Waiting two to four or more days for parts is a real challenge – especially for our clients with mission critical systems and those operating 24/7 services,” said Andrew Bagnara, Customer Success Manager at OIA.

Many of OIA’s customers want more than the standard vendor warranties which rely on out-of-state or international warehouses for parts. Given the deep, trusted relationships that OIA has with its customers, OIA were seeking a more suitable, and local, solution to offer that still met their own high standards.


Local part guarantee with local talent

OIA solved its clients’ downtime by partnering with an infrastructure services provider who could deliver service in Western Australia, wherever they were needed.

OIA and their clients now have the peace of mind that the part they need is in Perth, available, and an engineer can be on-site in as little as 2 hours. Interactive’s commitment to 100% part availability removes a major barrier for their remote customers.

Add Dicker Data’s fast quoting, online portal for orders and ease of doing business and both OIA and their customers have a solid solution for their infrastructure support needs.
