Hardware & Software Staging
Hardware and software staging is an important but often overlooked component of deploying new IT assets. Prior to delivery, APCD can check inventories, apply asset tags, and even install operating systems and other software. By completing this ahead of time and off site, the actual installation can be completed more efficiently for your business requests.
The integration of new assets with existing hardware and software is a critical part of a successful I.T. installation. APCD’s decades of technical experience will help you ensure that your new equipment has the software needed to connect with your existing network and keep your business operating efficiently.
Once the installation commences, APCD will provide an exact schedule of the work to be done and will promptly install your equipment to the work station. Every unit will be powered on to ensure it is functioning properly, and a sufficient quantity of backup units are maintained to account for any malfunctioning assets. All packaging materials are removed after the installation.

Our network of warehouses and storage locations ensure, along with our 20 vehicles capable of delivery ensure that your equipment is stored as close as possible to the final location for the day of installation.All equipment is securely packed in locked cages ready for transportation.
