OTTAWA, CANADA - Eurocom Corporation has launched the Corporate Trade In Program allowing companies during the times of low profits to upgrade their aging desktop centered hardware to newer, Pentium 4 based portable computer technology without major impact on their IT budget.
The Eurocom Corporate Trade In program allows customers to maximize their IT budget and acquire the state-of-art fully upgradeable portable technology (EUROCOM notebooks and all-in-one LCD PCs) in the most cost effective fashion. In times of economic recession, it is especially important for companies to conserve their financial resources and yet to maintain their computer technology at an always current level. With the Eurocom Corporate Trade In Program, customers save 20% off the purchase of new Eurocom technology when they trade in their aging non-EUROCOM equipment (notebook, desktop PC or server).

The two key benefits of the program are the prolonged life span of computer hardware, as EUROCOM systems are fully upgradeable, and the acquisition of more flexible portable computer equipment that allows more intelligent utilization of company resources than the traditional desktop based computer hardware.

An average computer today has a life span of eighteen months, while EUROCOM notebooks and LCD PC systems offer a much longer life thanks to upgrade ability of motherboards, memory, hard drive or optical drives. What makes Eurocom stand out is the ability to plan for future expandability of their products. In the early stages of product development, Eurocom is able to design systems featuring the latest in computing technology much sooner than their competitors. This allows Eurocom to offer products that are modular, fully configurable, and with longer life span that can be easily upgraded in the future for much less than a cost of brand new systems.

In addition to upgradeability options, the Eurocom Trade In program gives companies an opportunity to trade in their aging desktop-based PC hardware for the newest Intel Pentium 4 based portable technology. Eurocom Corporation offers a perfect solution for those companies who need the mobility of a notebook, but who do not want to compromise the power and functionality of a traditional desktop computer. With workforce changing fast, the ease of movement becomes a crucial factor when buying new computer equipment. Nowadays, it makes perfect sense for companies to migrate to fully portable computer technology, which makes relocation of employees and equipment very easy. The powerful and highly functional EUROCOM desktop replacement notebooks and portable LCD PC's are ideal systems for corporate customers who used to buy desktop PCs and notebooks, but who now do not want to exceed their IT budget buying both.

Most computer makers who run similar trade in programs, outsource them to third party service companies. Eurocom Corporation differs significantly from those as it refurbishes the traded in equipment. Moreover, the Eurocom Corporate Trade In Program provides businesses, government, healthcare sector, educational institutions and individuals with the means of disposing their aging computer hardware. Eurocom donates old equipment received under the Trade In Program to various charitable organizations, such as Computers for Schools helping young Canadians to gain greater access to computer technology and acquire computer skills needed to succeed in today's economy and society.
