Fee-based contracts are low administration routes to getting your end users on the Toshiba Maintenance program. The initial quote and contract process will be the same for you, the solution provider, but the invoicing and contract renewal procedures will be very different. With Fee-Based contracts, Toshiba bills the end user, and through ScanSource, the solution provider receives a ‘finder’s fee’ about five weeks after turning in a signed contract (exact percentages can be obtained from your sales representative). Toshiba will own the end-user relationship from then on and will contact the end user regarding maintenance contract renewal.
Remarketed contracts are sold just like hardware in the POS channel. Toshiba sells a contract to ScanSource, who sells it to a solution provider at a discounted rate, who in-turn sells it to an end user. The initial process of getting a quote and contract are the same for Remarketed and fee contracts. It is the responsibility of the solution provider to invoice the customer and initiate contract renewals at expiration.
- Machine must be in good working order at contract start/sign.
- A contract is not valid without signed and dated signature pages.
- We cannot backdate a contract for extended maintenance, contract start date will coincide with end-user signature date, which cannot be prior to contract creation date (listed on all pages of contract).
- For Warranty Upgrade contracts, we can backdate the contract start date up to 45 days in order to coincide with the installation date.
- When at all possible, we use the ISAT import feature to create extended maintenance contracts, this brings the exact information Toshiba has on their database into the contract and will prevent feature code discrepancies once the BPSO has the contract.
- If anyone encounters problems placing a service call (1-800-IBM-SERV) during the Initial Contract Period (ICP) please escalate the call to IBM’s National Duty Manager. Please be certain to have all paperwork in order when doing this (copies of signature pages, and Schedule for ServiceElite with listing of serial numbers).
- Please be sure to fill out the name and phone number under the end-user signature; this information is very important and Toshiba will not process a contract without it.
