Contracted PCB Repair Services Save Money While Building Customer Rapport

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Tue, Mar 31, 2015 @ 06:00 AM

Nearly any company that's looking at entering an electronics market thinks long and hard about which contracted manufacturer to use in their design and construction.  Oddly, however, many companies often neglect to think ahead of time about post-sale support and, specifically, who's going to be handling their tech issues.

More and more, this requires sub-contracting another company, separate from the manufacturer, to train and staff a call center.  While this is a popular option -especially with the rise in virtualized support services- it can ultimately create a very poor customer experience while simultaneously driving up your support costs.
