Adding a Monitor for Device Warranty

  • Last updated on

You can add a monitor that notifies you when a warranty is about to expire.

Barracuda Managed Workplace collects warranty information for Windows devices for the following vendors: Acer, Compaq, Dell, Gateway, HP, IBM, Lenovo and Toshiba. However, Barracuda Managed Workplace requires both the asset tag and model number to retrieve the warranty information for IBM and Lenovo.

Barracuda Managed Workplace also now collects automated warranty information for the following printer manufacturers: Apple, Dell, Hewlett Packard and Xerox. As with all automatic warranty collection in Barracuda Managed Workplace, this information is used by your sales team to identify opportunities to replace outdated hardware or offer your own branded extended warranty of service plans.

You can install the Warranty Expiration monitoring policy and apply it to monitored devices. Then Barracuda Managed Workplace alerts and send an email when either a vendor or a custom warranty is going to expire in 60 days. If you clear the alert for vendor warranty expiration, for example, you will still be alerted about the custom warranty expiration. However, when you clear one of the Warranty Expiration alerts, it does not alert again.
