What is an OEM?

An OEM, also known as an Original Equipment Manufacturer, is the industry’s supplier for devices assembled using components bought from other organizations. There are many reasons why server manufacturers partner with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). OEMs offer economies of scale, access to new technologies, and the ability to expedite products into the market. This process includes specifications, design, and development, all submitted by the outsourcing company to the OEM, which then builds the product to order. The results from being customized and reformed are assembled by the outsourcing company brand.

Why use an OEM?

OEMs have provided numerous benefits to both large and small businesses. When you work with an OEM, you can be confident that your customers will receive the highest quality products that meet any specified demands. In that case, you benefit from the manufacturer’s expertise and knowledge, which can assist you in designing a product that meets any customer demand requirements.

Today’s outsourcing enterprises may prefer the OEM model because it eliminates the demand to maintain costly manufacturing resources, management systems, program management, and labor. OEM services can also provide access to different markets that are challenging for foreign entry.

OEMs can be a favorable option for companies that have specific requirements that cannot be met by off-the-shelf servers. For example, if a company needs a server with a very high degree of expansion potential, an OEM may be the best option.
