Configuration Services

Configuration Services give customers control over the customization their enterprise-class and/or end-point systems, prior to delivery. By selecting the level of configuration desired, including hardware parts, software configurations, system settings, etching, and asset tagging, when technology is delivered it’s already fully configured and ready to run. In effect, a customer gets to choose what they want, how they want it, and when they want it.
