At Technical Security Integration, Inc., SMAs are not an “insurance policy.” Our SMAs provide tangible, value-added services such as scheduled preventative maintenance, user training, priority response, remote and on-site support, as well as additional discounts. A TSI SMA also enables you to budget for your service and maintenance costs in advance. In addition, it allows you to plan ahead for future expansion and upgrades of your system, minimizing hassle and unexpected costs.
Before a TSI SMA:
Before ordering service you must get an estimate, prepare a P.O. request, get approval from the person in charge, send it to purchasing, follow up to make sure your P.O. is cut, and then schedule the repair with your vendor.
After a TSI SMA:
Just call or e-mail us and schedule your service. It’s that easy!
