The Systems Cutover -- The Aug. 1 Shipping Transition Impact

As a result of a system cutover that comes with HP effectively operating as two separate companies on Aug. 1, no orders will be shipped by HP itself for six days from Aug. 1 to Aug. 6.

The six-day "shipping transition" comes with a system cutover set for the weekend of Aug. 1.

"Customers will be able to get product from partners during this time, even though we are not shipping direct.

Partners said they are well-prepared for the cutover. Future Tech, a Holbrook, N.Y.-based HP partner that provides thousands of HP systems each month to customers, has bought an additional $1 million in HP inventory to assure there are no hiccups in product delivery for its customers. "We have four employees dedicated to ensuring there is no stop in our HP supply chain for customers from order processing to staging and delivery," said Future Tech CEO Bob Venero.
