Electronic Manufacturing Services: The 911 of Electronic Emergencies  

Problems, struggles, and emergencies occur in the technological industry every day. Regardless of how many years you've been in the business, you're never immune to hitting a roadblock and needing to call in some outside help. Here are a few common "disaster" scenarios when you might need to call in an EMS:  

Emergency #1: You're stuck in the design process    

Struggling with the design phase of your electronics product or device can be extremely frustrating. In some cases, you may have a new or very important customer who is asking that you develop a prototype for a new product that will meet their needs. You and your team, however, may be having some difficulty in determining how to actually go about executing plans for this project. In another instance, your designers may be stuck partway through their plans and can't come to a workable solution on their own. In either scenario, it could be that your company is simply too close to the problem to see the answer. An EMS will offer a fresh opinion and can help you to get past any bumps in the road so that you can move forward with the production process.

Emergency #2: Your product isn't functioning properly    

You've designed and manufactured a PC board to work within a certain product, but something just isn't quite right. Perhaps the device isn't performing all of the functions that it was intended to, isn't operating quickly enough, or is malfunctioning in some other way. When you review your design schematics, you just can't put your finger on the source of the issue. Once again, you may be too close to the project. An EMS can take a look at what's going on, and through troubleshooting and inspecting the designs, can help you to figure out the root of the problem and help you to solve it.

Emergency #3: You're overloaded with work    

Normally, high customer demand is not a bad thing at all. When you don't have the time or resources to handle every batch order, though, you may be feeling a bit stressed. Will you have to turn clients away? Not if you have an EMS on your team.

Emergency #4: You're lacking in resources    assembly manufacturing

As a smaller scale electronics company, you may sometimes find that it's difficult for you to keep up with the resources that larger competitors might enjoy. In addition to a smaller labor force, you may not be able to afford the latest and greatest tools, equipment, and machinery to assemble stellar PC boards for your projects. If this sounds familiar, an EMS can save the day. These contract manufacturers are fully dedicated to staying abreast of the most advanced technologies and helping companies like yourself to produce state-of-the-art products.

Emergency #5: You're losing money on warranty replacements      

If you don't have the time or ability to troubleshoot and repair faulty electronics, you could find that you're spending a lot of money on sending out warranty replacements. An EMS can shoulder this burden for you.

When an emergency occurs, there's no need to panic. By keeping your head and calling a reliable EMS like Zentech to the scene, you can rest assured that you'll find an excellent solution to whatever problem you may be experiencing.
