What should I be selling?

  • Sell Foundation Care as an upgrade to standard warranty on HPE product sales, when the customer wants purely reactive support should a problem arise and is prepared / able to manage firmware updates in-house.
  • Sell Proactive Care when the customers needs support for converged infrastructure and wants proactive help to prevent problems and end-to-end call ownership, with enhanced service levels
  • In datacentre and virtualised environments, where high availability support is required for business-critical applications, you have the option to recommend either Proactive Care, or to focus on Datacenter Care to provide cost effective support across the whole IT environment – mixing warranty, standard and contractual service levels to suit the customer’s specific needs.
