Strategic Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs)
Vista IT Group supports customers all over the country by offering them technology solutions from virtually every major technology manufacturer. Certain products are considered strategic due to their market position and the value propositions they offer in the marketplace. Below are a few of the OEM's we've aligned our go-to-market strategy around based on some of the industries and verticals we serve.
The Cisco Excess inventory program was established to ensure that Cisco could re-capture the value of its entire technology portfolio, regardless of where it sits in the product lifecycle. This unique program enables Vista IT Group as a hand chosen technology provider to resell Cisco products that are considered excess to Cisco’s supply chain. The benefit is that Vista’s customers can purchase products that have gone through Cisco’s exhaustive remanufacturing process, are licensed with a valid IOS, and are guaranteed by Cisco to be SMARTnet eligible.
As a Cisco Excess customer, Vista distributes surplus, refurbished, and used product from Cisco’s vast portfolio of data center routers, and Catalyst and Nexus switches, to the full complement of Cisco UCS blades and rack servers. All products carry the same Cisco SMARTnet support options as new equipment, at substantially discounted prices.
