It’s Domino Renewal Time

We have some great news! As of just recently, iTech Solutions has become an HCL Business Partner.

What does that mean for you?

For starters, iTech can now review your existing IBM maintenance agreements for the following products:

  • Notes
  • Domino
  • Connections
  • Sametime
  • And more!

Why should we review your maintenance agreements before renewal?

Most importantly, you need to ensure that you’re compliant. Let’s say your business has grown over the last few years and you’re 40% under the licenses you should have. Or perhaps your business has reduced in size and you’re set to overpay on your maintenance renewal. Neither is a good thing. Perhaps you were sold IBM’s “Dual Entitlement” licenses for Notes/Domino and need guidance over to HCL’s new product licensing. The old dual entitlement licensing is gone.

iTech Solutions can review your last maintenance contract and provide you with accurate recommendations on moving forward.

Once the path is set, iTech can renew your maintenance agreement with HCL on your behalf and ideally reduce the yearly renewal cost. A great example of how iTech helps is that we had a customer with 700 user licenses. They were spending approximately $80,000 on their Domino renewals each year. They actually only needed 500 user licenses. We also revised their maintenance contract as they were paying for features they never used and weren’t going to use, which subsequently reduced their cost per license in addition to lowering the number of licenses by almost 30%. In the end, their renewal cost is now saving them tens of thousands of dollars per year.

If you’re a Notes/Domino customer, please contact us and we’ll do our best to ensure you get the most bang for your buck with your maintenance renewal.
