By purchasing used PBX equipment as well as refurbished PC and data equipment, businesses can save up to sixty percent on network hardware costs.
Troy, MI (PRWEB) December 22, 2009
MetrolineDirect has been a leading provider of refurbished PBX equipment for over 20 years and now offers quality refurbished computers and servers to its customer base.
“In recent years many of our customers have inquired about used data equipment when purchasing voice equipment. As voice applications have slowly migrated to data networks, the demand for PC's used in PBX applications such as voice mail, fax, and even PBX switch servers has grown,” said Kyle Danaher, Director of Procurement at MetrolineDirect.
With today's economy squeezing budgets, companies are looking for new ways to stretch their IT dollars. Larger businesses have realized significant savings in personnel costs by outsourcing many labor and knowledge positions. The open source software movement has eliminated licensing costs for a variety of applications. Even the large initial investments in hardware are being scrutinized. Many businesses have begun to offset hardware costs by choosing used equipment for the maintenance and expansion of voice and data networks.
“What we thought would be a product offering for a specific subset of voice applications has become a larger offering in terms of low-cost workstation PC's and higher end servers used for applications like open source PBX's, firewalls, web servers, and intranet servers," said Danaher.
