Technology offers unprecedented opportunities to solicit and capture the attention of consumers using digital commercial displays. In the continuing era of evolution, companies are taking advantage of digital displays. It is not unusual to see multiple displays covering the interior or exterior of building walls with information and imagery pertaining to our lifestyles and individual preferences.
From the business side, the function of these displays involves a natural progression of physical wear and tear. Manufacturers provide a warranty comprised of terms and conditions as a show of good faith in the quality of the product. The warranty offers a method of recovery in the event the equipment fails. In some cases, the warranty requires specific maintenance and use of the product as directed.
As a business strategy, purchasing the extended option through USSI Global offers a continuing value to prolonging the lifespan of the product. Not all warranties are the same. The extended warranty may have limits based on the age or condition of the display. It helps to know the equipment’s history to assure the new terms provide suitable coverage.
Equipment Life Cycles
Most businesses accept the manufacturer’s warranty without question. They miss the true value of extended commercial warranty agreements. Besides reducing the service costs or business loss due to hardware failure – it also protects your IT investment. Today, the majority of successful businesses operate with some form of commercial technology and use extended warranty plans to support existing equipment in operation.
Recognized service companies like USSI Global offer extended warranties for repair or replacement services of hardware using original or new legacy products. Here it makes sense to extend the warranty, because you not only extend its cycle, you improve the original equipment. The terms include specific coverage related to both service maintenance and operational repairs due normal wear and tear.
Warranties are added value tools with a single purpose of maintaining the product’s performance through a specific term. USSI Global extended warranty services lengthen the equipment’s lifespan, beyond the manufacturer’s fulfillment. Strategically, this partnership offers equipment functionality to fit the business environment.
Managing these warranties to your advantage happens when you engage a recognized service company to oversee the equipment after deployment. Consider a warranty as a supplement to the investment reducing the out-of-pocket costs throughout the equipment’s life cycle. The extended services offer coverages to replace or update the original equipment for a fraction of the cost. If the parts are obsolete, they certify the replacement parts at a significant savings compared to replacing the unit.
New commercial models emerge in the market every year. Cycles of commercial technology occur every three to four years and take hold in five—setting a new standard. Most changes are phased in slowly and service companies like USSI Global are paying attention to the transitions and how they could potentially affect your equipment.
Technology design changes also instigate restrictions in the initial warranty contract – disallowing direct manufacturer renewals. Businesses have the choice of continuing to use the equipment without coverage once the initial warranty expires and assume the risks or, a more favorable option is to take advantage of the USSI Global extended warranty to keep the equipment running efficiently.
When there is a noticeable disconnect between technology practices and your equipment’s performance, it is time to upgrade. As an approved source, USSI Global offers cost savings for the new parts and alternatives for obsolete parts. In addition, maintenance services are included under the extended warranty terms and conditions for peace of mind.
Warranties play a critical role in the return of IT investments. An experienced service provider has the skill to extend the equipment’s lifecycle, but every era of technology has its limits. At some point, the next level of innovation takes hold of the market, signaling it is time to refresh equipment with a new warranty. It is simply the progression and evolution of business.
