ServicePacs for Printers - InfoPrint Solutions Company

Keep your printers up and running 24x7 with ServicePac for warranty maintenance options.

InfoPrint Solutions Company offers a variety of ServicePacs to meet your business needs. You can avoid unexpected, prolonged downtime with maintenance, or post-warranty coverage that can help you continually support your customers and provide critical business information. In addition you can use the Installation ServicePac to have printers installed on-site with ease.

Which ServicePac coverage is right for your printer?

Warranty service upgrades (WSU) are for printers that are still within the original base warranty coverage period. Various service levels, response times and supported products are available for this type of Warranty and Maintenance Option (WAMO) ServicePac.

If you have a printer that is out of warranty, or if you have an existing warranty service upgrade (WSU) or maintenance agreement that is about to expire, then post-warranty maintenance (MA ServicePac) is right for you.

If you have a new printer which requires installation services, the Installation ServicePac is right for you.

MA (Post Warranty) ServicePacs

MA ServicePac may be added to a machine:

MA ServicePacs will not automatically renew upon expiration. To continue service, additional purchase and activation is required. The term will then be extended one or two years ( depending on the length purchased) from the current MA ServicePac end date at the requested level of service. Service will not take effect until the current MA ServicePac expires.
