The following Support Blog will break down the many benefits of having SITA support coverage and why it is so valuable and cost-effective for you to keep one.

What does the Epson SITA support contract provide?

  • Direct access to premier virtual technical support Monday – Friday from 9 AM to 5:30 PM EST.
  • SITA coverage ensures that if a situation arises where an Epson technician cannot repair or fix the unit virtually/over the phone the customer will then be shipped a replacement unit and a return shipping label to box up and return the faulty printer.

Is the support contract a smart buy even if I still am operating under the first-year manufacturer warranty?

  • Definitely - in the event, the unit goes down for any reason and needs repairs within the first year. Under a SITA agreement, you are guaranteed to have a replacement unit sent to you. This will limit downtime, and keep you from having to wait for a technician in addition to saving you money for having to coordinate shipping the down unit to and from Epson for repairs.
