Contact Computer Connection for your End-of-Year tech purchases

For those planning end-of-FY technology purchasing, here are several items that might prove helpful:

  • The long lead times we saw develop this winter/spring on many Intel processors are still affecting manufacturing of a good number of PC laptops and desktops.  If you have time-sensitive fulfillment needs that require you to expense funds by June 30, I urge you to consider placing those orders as soon as possible to assure the best possible outcome for an FY19 billing to occur.
  • Placing your orders through the Computer Connection, instead of directly with the supplier (Dell, Lenovo, Apple, etc), will give you the added advantage of your order being closely monitored with our technology partners’ Sales Account Executives and their inside sales teams to maximize the likelihood of your order being billed this FY.  The Computer Connection is often able to ring up orders until the close of business on June 30th, and still bill your order appropriately to FY19 within the “13th month” close period at the beginning of July.  
  • A reminder that the Computer Connection is also stocking the Penn Standard “Collaborative Purchasing” OptiPlex desktops which are available for immediate fulfillment for our departmental customers, based on stock on hand. Details on these deeply discounted Dell desktops are viewable at www.upenn.edu/computerstore/collaborative.

If you have any questions about end of year purchasing,  please contact Paul Culkin at 215-898-0889 or paul2@upenn.edu .
