Businesses are all about maximising profits. Saving money does not necessarily mean that a particular business will have to “downgrade” their equipment. A good way to save up on budget would be to use good quality “refurbished” telecommunication equipment.
What does ‘refurbished’ mean?
Most people think that the word ‘refurbished’ referred to old, second hand used equipment. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In short, refurbished equipment is equipment that has been returned by customers because of some small defect. The manufacturers then inspect it, make the repairs and put it back on for a resale.
The equipment might have been termed as ‘refurbished’ because the customer changed his/her mind and returned it because of the price, colour or model. Or there might have been a small problem with the way the gadget worked.
As good as new
So in a way, refurbished telecommunication goods are as good as buying brand new equipment. When dealing with refurbished equipment, manufacturers have their hands tied, because they cannot, in any way sell an item that has been returned to them, as brand new. Even though, there was nothing wrong with the equipment in the first place.
Because refurbished telecommunication equipment is “refurbished”, they cost much lesser than new equipment. Purchasing equipment that works as well as ‘brand new’ equipment, at much lower prices will always help your business!
Before making a decision to purchase “refurbished” telecom equipment, here are few pointers to keep in mind.
If your employees have to regularly use multi-line telephones, refurbished phone systems are an excellent choice. They offer all the features that brand new phone offer.
Another tip to sweeten your deal if you do go in for refurbished telecom equipment is to purchase them at wholesale rates.
