CHICAGO, Ill., June 13 -- As technology resellers’ profits cool, custom technology sales are heating up; Ace Computers’ recent 800-plus unit order from the U.S. military is a good example. This trend toward custom is driven largely by organizations that require large numbers of workstations (desktops), massive computing power or both. Here’s why:
This radical shift toward custom computers is especially evident at Ace Computers. “We’ve been in business for 30 years and have never been busier,” said Ace Computers CEO, John Samborski. “The mass market has always been one-size-fits all, but now I think it’s even more so. If you go into an electronics big box store, there’s not much left to choose from anymore. Even though custom has always equaled value, the custom builds we’re getting now are from organizations that can’t find what they need at any price.”
Samborski added, “Although this is by no means our first military order, we were awarded the recent contract because they were looking for a best of class workstation with the performance, precision, and price that the government requires. It was evident to them that we could deliver all three and off-the-shelf could not.”
So while the market for off-the-shelf desktops continues to wane and mobile devices don’t have the power, capacity, or longevity that most organizations need; today’s high performing custom computers are filling the gap.
