What is Total Cost of Ownership & How Does it Affect You?
Too often, end-users make snap decisions about product selection based on a handful of specs they gleaned from a data sheet. And then, of course, there is the “lowest price” consideration, which is often calculated by only three factors: price of hardware, installation and activation, and monitoring.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is rarely a consideration; however, over the life of the product – or even a budget cycle – customers can save money, achieve better results, and ultimately have more confidence in their integrator when TCO is something that the integrator promotes right from the beginning.

This white paper takes a deep dive into the various factors that affect TCO, what to look out for when evaluating new systems and the right questions to ask when deciding to do so.

What’s Included:

  • Definition and meaning of TCO
  • How to evaluate device licensing practices
  • What upgrade charges look like for different companies
  • How the manufacturer’s tech support policies can impact TCO
  • Why certain products will jack up the burdened labor rate
