These customers will save an average of 15% on the procurement and deployment their international laptops, desktops, tablets, servers, network equipment and point of sale terminals and cameras without having to change hardware vendors.
GlobalServe is helping an exciting new group of companies with global supply chain challenges get their international IT equipment better, faster and cheaper. Oil & Gas is one of our largest and fastest growing customer segments – the faster, more reliable GlobalServe supply chain keeps energy projects on schedule – while saving money.
In Semiconductors, GlobalServe is just starting to support an organization of 40 semiconductor companies that will be leveraging their purchasing power with GlobalServe’s purchasing power. Each company has a different global footprint and will receive their own custom portal.
Supporting the international store expansion of Quick Service Restaurants for one of the world’s most successful operators is a first for GlobalServe in this category. Worldwide, they are adding over 1000 stores in 2014. GlobalServe is providing not just IT equipment, but point of sale equipment for each store. The new restaurant technology package is delivered with highly reliable schedule performance and real-time information about every order as the rollouts progress. GlobalServe is keeping the local equipment markups to a minimum which helps lower the total cost to open each new store.
GlobalServe is now supporting a legendary name in the Software business – it is one of the largest and best known software firms in the world. GlobalServe has proven its effectiveness with technology companies and more specifically with software companies, but this new customer deepens our tech activity. They like the efficient procurement simplicity of the entire GlobalServe supply chain – from the web portal, to purchasing and tracking equipment, to the on-site services. Their savings will be direct – on the local equipment markups and indirect – reduced employee resources required to manage the international procurements.
