Computer & Office Equipment Repair

Computer & Office Equipment Repair

Overview

The 5,000 industry firms in the US repair and maintain computers and office machinery, including terminals, storage devices, network devices, printers, and copiers. Computer and office equipment repair providers typically operate as third-party maintenance (TPM) providers. They may serve a broad range of customers or specialize in a particular vertical, such as manufacturing or healthcare.

Replace Versus Repair

Falling prices characterize the information technology industry, and, in many cases, customers may choose to replace older hardware rather than repair and maintain aging technology.

Competition from Alternative Sources

Original equipment manufacturers (OEM) still dominate the computer and office equipment maintenance and repair market.
