Benefits to Fulcrum customers include deeper services for asset maintenance, return, repair, replacement, warranty services, and decommissioning.
“Worldwide Supply sets the standard for network equipment and deployment services, while Fulcrum sets the standard for powerful, flexible, intelligent ALM” explained Owen Grohman, NetGuard Services Director of Worldwide Supply. “This new partnership with Fulcrum allows for unprecedented Capex and OpEx efficiencies at every stage of a Communication Service Provider’s asset lifecycle.”
Fulcrum’s ALM software, services, asset tags, and mobile hardware compliment Worldwide Supply’s ability to maximize the value of corporate inventory.
