expert service for mission-critical equipment
Every business relies on fully-functional technology in order to thrive. Even when something as small as a barcode printer goes offline, that downtime can get very expensive, very quickly. Whether you’re looking for ongoing preventative maintenance or as-needed repairs, the nationwide TDS team of printer technicians has the expertise to keep your fleet running smoothly.
On-Site Printer Maintenance
Regular, preventative care is essential for maintaining the peak functionality of your equipment, but taking your in-house staff away from their regular duties to manage it can become expensive and frustrating. Our experts are already familiar with all the major manufacturers and can handle whatever service is needed without taking away from your normal workflow.
Ongoing Service Agreements
The TDS team takes pride in delivering fast, effective solutions whenever the need for repairs arises, but we have an equally stellar track record in helping our clients to avoid the need for them in the first place. With an ongoing printer service agreement, we can take care of all the routine maintenance necessary to proactively minimize downtime for your fleet.
Depot Repairs & Service
TDS technicians are available nationwide to come to you, but when extensive rebuilds or repairs are what’s needed, depot service at our Greenville, South Carolina headquarters is also an option. All of our repairs are performed by experienced technicians using the highest-quality OEM parts available, and depot estimates are always free.
Installations & Configurations
Our expert technicians are also available to get new equipment off to the best possible start with worry-free professional installation and setup services—including driver installation, media configuration, and complete diagnostic checks.

Staging & Configuration
let our people help your people
Systems integration can be an extremely time-consuming, complicated and frustrating process, especially ahead of a critical IT deployment. We leverage our national presence to provide expert staging and integration services for TDS deployment projects requiring schedule-based consolidation of multi-vendor components.
Regional Staging Centers
TDS can expertly manage both the logistics and integration sides of your project. Based on the nature and geographic reach of your rollout, TDS will choose one or multiple locations to receive inventory, integrate hardware, image software, execute end-to-end testing and prepare for deployment.
Integration & Consolidation
IT solutions often contain hardware and software components from various suppliers. Our deep field of equipment and software experts assures that technicians trained and certified on your specific system components will manage the staging and configuration processes.
System Functionality Assurance
The TDS teams assigned to your project leave nothing to chance. Once integration, customization and imaging is complete, end-to-end testing is conducted to ensure that our installation professionals will have the customer’s equipment working to exact specifications in stores, plants and facilities on schedule.
Certified Staging Professionals
With so much at stake, it makes sense to partner with a leading deployment services company to oversee the preparation of ten systems, or ten thousand devices. TDS staging professionals are expert in the thorough and meticulous TDS Staging & Configuration Protocol (SCP), guaranteeing adherence to your exacting specifications.
the backbone of your IT infrastructure
The design, quality and adaptability of an organization’s voice and data cabling networks will dictate the efficiency and long-term effectiveness of the entire enterprise. Planning ahead for evolving communications requirements is critical to cabling design and installation. TDS has the certified professionals and vast structured cabling experience to build or modify infrastructures of any scale.
All Cable Categories
Our expertise covers Copper Networks (Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a, etc), Fiber-Optic Networks (10G, Single Mode, Multimode, etc), Coaxial Cable Runs, Wireless Networks, Audio/Video Systems, Demarc Extensions and other environments.
Design & Installation
Highly trained technicians and RCDDs manage each cabling installation project with precision, efficiency and accountability. TDS installation engineers receive continuing education as new cabling technologies, media and best-practice protocols emerge.
TIA standards define six subsystems of a structured cabling system: Entrance Facilities, Equipment Room, Backbone Cabling, Telecommunications Room and Enclosure, Horizontal Cabling and Work Area. All TDS cabling engineers deployed to installation sites have complete fluency in each subsystem and their relationship to the complete cabling infrastructure.
Moves, Adds, Changes (MAC)
Even the best plans change, sometimes in progress, often at a later date. TDS will meet all cable MACs with efficiency and accuracy. We provide rapid cabling infrastructure modifications caused by personnel changes, physical office moves, new machine or device deployments or other impact events.
