Service Level Agreements
Having the majority of our customers residing in the corporate work field, Integra provides a wide variety of service levels suitable for almost every vendor warranty replacement or direct uplift. Over 65% of our service level agreements in place are mission critical service levels, having our certified field engineers onsite with the customer within 4 hours, round the clock.
In order to meet our strict service levels, Integra has several strategic warehousing locations, accessible 24×7 and geographically spread around the world operated by 3rd party logistics management companies.
By utilizing these stocking locations efficiently Integra is able to cover the majority of urban areas internationally within 2 hours from part dispatching.

Governance and Quality Control
Integra has a governance plan in place to control and retain proper task execution. The different sets of roles, responsibilities and processes are described in detail and are available organization-wide for review and improvement when required. The governance plan does not only include the typical general objectives such as administrational, financial, operational or service processes, but it also includes an educational objective to contribute to a positive learning environment where people are motivated to not only gain but share knowledge as well.
Education and training is critical to ensure our customers get the service and support they require as well as for our field engineers to keep up with the fast changing IT market and new manufacturer equipment releases. Integra is committed to professional development of its employees, partners and contractors to maintain a high level of technical expertise, including its certifications, across the broad spectrum of our multi vendor service portfolio.
