As an IT manager, you have a lot on your plate. Sometimes, you need the right help at the right time without worrying about budget constraints, purchase orders, or your team's availability. That's where HPE Service Credits come in handy.

Think of HPE Service Credits like a book of postage stamps, but for your IT needs. Just as you can use stamps whenever you need to send a letter without buying them each time, HPE Service Credits let you access over 100 IT services on demand. Whether you need infrastructure analysis or performance improvement, you can use these credits anytime during your contract. This flexibility and control can greatly enhance your team's efficiency.

Here is how HPE Service Credits can improve both individual and team productivity.

What are HPE Service Credits?

With IT departments under pressure to do more with less while continually improving performance, HPE Lifecycle Services offers IT teams the expertise to maximize their IT investments at every stage of the lifecycle. Often, internal IT resources are stretched thin, leading to project delays as they juggle day-to-day tasks. Additionally, slow spending approval processes can be critical when you need fast responses to raising issues. As part of this initiative, HPE Service Credits provide flexible, prepaid access to a wide range of predefined and custom-scope technical services. This allows customers to bank up credits for ready use, ensuring they can swiftly meet their IT operational, performance, capacity, and project objectives without being hindered by resource limitations or approval delays.

HPE Service Credits are available in packs of 10 or 30 credits, with options for 1,3, 4, or 5-year durations to allocate the necessary credits. Additional credits can be purchased at any time to meet evolving operational needs, ensuring continuous and adaptable IT support. It's important to note that these credits must be redeemed in the country of purchase and can’t be transferred if not used in the contract duration.

Which services can they be redeemed for?

These credits can be used for over 100 service menu options, including support for servers, storage, networking, software, and cloud infrastructure. They also cover IT assessments, resource allocation, and technical assistance. Click here to see the full menu on the HPE website.
