The National Australia Bank (NAB) has selected Acer to supply its desktops and notebooks for 12 months.
The computers will be asset-tagged while history including service and installation, technical specifications, pre-installed software and delivery location information will be logged.
Acer will supply NAB with its Veriton 2800 and 5800 desktops, Travelmate 3282 and 3012 notebooks and will include 19- and 17-in LCD monitors.
Acer corporate national sales manager, Frank Ugolini, said integration and maintenance can cost more than initial equipment costs.
"The costs of deploying, managing and integrating systems can cost more than the upfront hardware price. Because of this we are providing SOE management and installation, onsite set-up of new equipment, training and handbooks to familiarize end users with new hardware and data-cleaning of old hardware," he said.
Ugolini said Acer's Australian-based assembly and support facilities increase its market appeal.
"While many major vendors are shipping their facilities overseas, the market is voting with its feet on dealing with Acer because we have local assembly and dedicated support offerings which are not outsourced to overseas facilities and call centres," he said.
