What should I do if my equipment is out of order?

When will IBM commence billing the software license charges? I have a new recurring charge software license contract. The software licenses have been delivered and installed.

IBM provides a 10-day allowance period from installation date aside from the testing period (if any). Billing will commence on the first workday of the following month after the testing period.

How do I request for a Maintenance Agreement, if I need maintenance service coverage for my machines?

Service performed on equipment without maintenance coverage is billable for parts and labour.
Please contact our Technical support to log a fault call.
If you have been advised that your equipment does not have maintenance coverage and you would like to query this, please verify the machine type and serial number of your machine and submit an online request.

How will equipment inventory records be updated if my IBM equipment was purchased from another country and shipped locally?

Customer Number

If it is a leased machine, returned to IBM Global Finance (IGF), please provide the date of return and the IGF quote number (if known).
