LTI combines the people, processes, and technology necessary to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver remedial IT hardware maintenance services. We help you minimize the disruption caused by unplanned downtime of IT hardware such as PCs, workstations, terminals, printers, and network hardware. We also perform preventive maintenance services to help you extend the life of your IT assets.

LTI works with you to design a program that meets your specific needs. For large campus environments, we place technicians who work full-time at your site delivering services. To support remote facilities (including home offices), we draw from our nationwide network of on-call technicians.

As your partner for hardware maintenance services, LTI will help you:

  • Minimize equipment downtime and increase end user satisfaction.
  • Reduce IT infrastructure costs.
  • Free up your internal IT staff to focus on your business-critical projects.

    LTI provides complete warranty administration and support IT hardware from a wide variety of manufacturers. We strategically stock spare parts at customer sites and at LTI logistics centers throughout the US, which enables us to restore hardware failures quickly. LTI typically owns the spare parts and then takes ownership of failed parts, which we typically send to the manufacturer for a replacement or reimbursement.

    LTI provides services independently from IT hardware vendors, which enables us to support a wider variety of equipment and solve problems for which the root cause may be unknown. We even resolve end-user problems that do not require hardware warranty repairs, including problems induced by the end user. And when the attention of another service group is required to resolve a problem, LTI will contact the appropriate person and manage the repair to the end user’s satisfaction.


    LTI analyzes factors such as equipment quantity, age, and failure rate to determine the optimal size of our spare-parts inventory. We work with OEMs and vendors daily to manage the parts procurement process. By establishing close relationships with our vendors, LTI has ready and reliable access to IT parts and supplies. If procuring a part threatens to delay the repair, we deploy loaner equipment to provide a temporary restore, with equivalent functionally, until the original unit is repaired.


    • Onsite technicians
    • Warehousing of spare parts and systems
    • Inventory Management & control
    • Proactive Parts Procurement
    • Strong Vendor Partnerships
