Frequently Asked Questions
What is the flat-fee cost per device, and what does it cover?
The flat-fee cost per device varies depending on the model. The flat-fee pricing covers one device, but is not tied to any particular serial or asset tag. Fee includes shipping each way, parts, and labor.
Are all repairs covered?
Generally, devices with bad motherboards will be retired, and the usable parts from those devices will be used to repair other units. STS will provide any retired devices’ serial/asset tag numbers to the District Technology staff.
What if there is more than one thing requiring repair on any device that is submitted?
Each device, regardless of how many parts might be broken, excluding motherboards, will be repaired to “like new” status.
Is there a minimum number of devices?
Yes. To take advantage of the fixed, flat-fee pricing of the STS Chromebook Break/Fix Program, schools and districts must prepay for a minimum of 50 devices. We also offer special packages for small schools and districts and repair services on a device-by-device cost basis.
How long does the service last?
The service contract expires at the end of the school year, in most cases, regardless of whether or not you have used all of your package― unless stated otherwise in writing.
Can I check the status of my broken devices during the repair process?
Yes! We scan and tag each device and provide accurate inventory reporting that integrates with your asset management software. We can also help you use the data over time to discover ways to reduce breakage, scale successful best practices, and reduce costs.
How does STS mitigate the impact of supply chain disruptions on replacement part availability?
Having access to a wide array of parts is vital for dealing with technology troubles. Accordingly, we maintain a select variety of reconditioned parts in our local warehouse and offer new parts through our extensive global network of OEM contacts. However, supply disruptions still may occur. In those cases, you will get a status update indicating that STS is waiting on parts with an expected repair date.
I’m thinking of recycling my used devices rather than repairing them. Can STS help me with that?
STS has services that can support you at any stage of your device’s lifecycle. However, rather than recycle your used devices, perhaps you should consider our Asset Value Recovery Program. The program is environmentally friendly and economically responsible. Your school’s used computers have value. Use it, don’t lose it!
What brands of devices are your technicians authorized to repair?
STS EDUCATION is an authorized service provider for all major manufacturers, including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo.
Are repairs backed by a short-term warranty? If so, how long does the warranty last?
All repairs are covered for workmanship but not accidental damage by staff or students. In those cases, the device can be submitted for repair, assuming you have not used up your bundle.
Does your Break/Fix team have experience working with K-12 schools and districts?
Yes! Our team of technical experts specializes in K – 12 education, with each having an average of seven years of experience integrating educational technology into the learning environment.
What counties in Southern California are part of the service delivery area?
Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, and Ventura counties.
What if I am interested in the service, but my school or district is outside the service delivery area?
STS may have alternative resources in your area. Please call your representative with any inquiries.
