Park Place Technologies: 8 Things To Know As Partner Program Debuts

Joseph F. Kovar

Park Place Technologies, the largest third-party hardware maintenance provider that is also expanding into monitoring and management services, has been around for 30 years, and is finally getting ready to formalize the relationship with partners who already account for over 40 percent of its revenue. Here are eight keys to understanding the company.

Park Place Technologies Is Not Just About Third-party Maintenance

Actually, Park Place is the largest player in the third-party maintenance space, with a 30-year history in the field. However, said Dave Cox (pictured), the company’s chief operating officer, the company is trying to change the perception around how it is viewed in the market.

“We’re working to change the perception of Park Place to be not just a third-party maintenance company,” Cox told CRN. ”You should almost think of our business as two pieces. We’ve got the traditional core third-party maintenance business. But when we talk about that DMSO framework and all the additional services and software that we’re driving, they surround and build off that core.”
