Building a server only takes a few hours, but installing all the software and making sure that everything is configured properly and that your software runs stably takes up a huge amount of time. By ordering a 3XS system our engineers take this painful process away, as all our systems undergo a strenuous Quality Control procedure which includes updating Windows, installing the latest drivers and motherboard BIOS. All systems receive an additional 24 hour burn-in test to ensure stability.
All Scan 3XS Enterprise Series solutions are covered by our Premium 3 Year Warranty. This means that if your system develops a fault in its first year we can send an engineer to your office to repair it. In the remaining two years of the warranty we'll still repair or replace any faulty parts, but do this from our state of the art factory in Lancashire.
If you do encounter a problem with your system our technical support team is available 7 days a week, from 9am to 10pm Mon - Fri, 10am to 6pm on Saturdays and 10am to 4pm on Sundays. Click here for more info on how to get technical support for your 3XS system.
Sometimes software installed after a system has been received can cause instabilities and crashes. Typically these issues can be resolved without requiring a visit from an onsite engineer or returning the system to Scan. To aid this process all systems ship with a USB recovery stick which includes a backup of the operating system. Simply insert the recovery stick and follow the instructions on screen and the recovery stick will refresh your system back to factory defaults.
The USB stick also includes dozens of helpful utilities for diagnosing and repairing your system should it develop a fault. The USB stick can be found attached to the PSU inside your system in case you misplace the welcome pack. We hope you’ll never need to use it, but it’s there just in case.
We also preinstall a Windows application on your system that has shortcuts to some helpful diagnostic tools and our contact details. The 3XS Support application can be found running in the System Tray in the bottom right corner of the Task Bar with a ‘3XS’ icon – simply right click on the icon to open the menu then left click on the option you want.
Scan Computers is proud to build all our 3XS systems in our state of the art factory in Lancashire. This ensures the highest quality and rapid delivery to our customers and that our engineers are easily available should you need technical support.
Once your system has passed our rigorous Quality Control procedure any space inside the case will be filled with anti-static bubble wrap. This has been specially developed for 3XS Systems and helps to protect your system when it is with our courier. Please ensure you remove this bubble wrap before turning on the system for the first time. We also double box all systems, with the inner box cushioned inside the larger outer box by a layer of shock-absorbing plastic air pockets.
