D&H Distributing will stock Cisco Certified Refurbished Equipment for 25 percent less than the cost of new equipmentwith the same warranties and same-day shipping.

D&H Distributing has announced that it will stock Cisco Certified Refurbished Equipment, making it available for same-day shipping through its partners.
The IT distributor said the program is geared toward budget-minded end customers who are looking for Cisco products but may not have the funds to pay for new equipment.

While D&H has occasionally offered a refurbished product here or there, this is the first time the company has stocked a full lineup from a vendor, according to Tina Fisher, D&H's director of purchasing.

"What tends to happen with refurbished products is the solution provider will check for availability online, but then by the time the deal is done the inventory might not be there anymore," Fisher said. "Now we are stocking the product lines."

Fisher said Cisco approached D&H about carrying the line of refurbished products geared toward VARs—when the customers want "a good-quality product but can't quite get into standard Cisco pricing."

The equipment comes with a 25 percent discount from standard pricing, but the same warranties apply, Fisher said. In most cases, the equipment is ready for same-day shipment if ordered by 7 p.m. ET. Products that are not in stock can also be shipped the same day if ordered by noon.
