Sigma provides its customers a consistent data center experience worldwide, making global deployments far more efficient and cost effective.
Sigma allows its international customers to leverage their US sales relationship to purchase locally worldwide (in local currency if desired), avoiding import duties associated with purchasing in the US and shipping to foreign countries. This process also allows the local entity to claim back local taxes.
Sigma’s engineers have detailed knowledge of their customers’ policies, procedures, and configurations, both documented and undocumented. Sigma combines local architecture & design, project management, installation, and remote access capabilities while leveraging the US engineers familiar with their customers’ procedures for configurations. While European or Asian solution providers might have similar knowledge of product sets, they do not have Sigma’s direct knowledge of the customer.
Sigma geographic implementation capabilities
Local procurement of US international companies may try to ‘improve’ the bill of materials via alterations. International companies, most of which support all of their data centers with a centralized group, look for consistency, not ‘improvements’ in a BOM rolled out at other data centers. Pivot delivers a consistent data center experience for its customers worldwide.
