Touchpoint was able to help Santos with an urgent requirement for Moxa ruggedised switches. Our solutions team identified a later model switch that was a suitable and readily available replacement for the original switches, which are no longer available. The equipment was delivered within 24 hours of receiving the order.

Customer Challenge:

Santos phoned our office with an urgent requirement. An unforeseen power surge had fried several Moxa layer 2 managed ruggedised switches at one of their mine sites in regional Queensland. Their initial searches indicated there was none of these available in the country.

Touchpoint Solution:

Our solutions team got to work and quickly identified a later model switch, part number EDS-508A-SS-SC-T, that was both a suitable replacement and readily available. We placed the equipment on hold and awaited customer approval to proceed with delivery. Once we had the green light, we moved quickly to expedite delivery to our warehouse so that the equipment was ready for pickup by the customer within 24 hours of receiving the order.
