What does it mean to Know Your Source®? It means asking the right questions about your technology partner to ensure you’re getting the highest quality equipment, at the best value, for your business. If your vendor can’t be relied upon at all times, maybe it’s time to consider another vendor.
When it comes to reliability, your technology provider should deliver on several fronts. These are the questions you should consider when assessing your current vendor:
It’s imperative that you get insight into how your vendor tests the products they refurbish. These testing processes determine the reliability of the hardware they provide. A reliability rating of more than 99% is essential. Demand to know what their processes entail and what their reliability rating is.
What do they pack their equipment in to protect it during shipping? Packing peanuts? Newspaper? That’s not going to cut it. Sophisticated technology needs to be protected with quality packaging. Data hardware should be contained safely with pack-in-place cushioning and phones should be stabilized with a plastic film to keep them from jostling during shipping. Anything less will risk significant damage to your investment.
Receiving certification from a reliable third-party source like ISO requires implementing quality controls, documenting processes and procedures that affect product and service quality, and establishing the appropriate emphasis on improvement ensuring it’s followed by everyone in the organization. Make sure your partner is certified so hat you can rely on their commitment to quality.
