The Challenge

Improperly informed IT decisions can be costly. Technology is changing so fast that even specialists struggle in identifying those standards that will survive the next wave. Integration of new devices into existing architecture can also present challenges.

Specifically, in Israel, virtually all IT equipment sold here is imported. Computers and communications equipment must pass strict rules of the Standards Institute. Therefore, importing is usually done through local suppliers to minimize the bureaucratic challenges associated with importing to Israel. 

In addition, there are many "parallel" importers who don't have agreements with the manufacturers and often offer end of life hardware, meaning that they offer lower pricing, but with no warranties. This represents a huge risk for businesses.
