The process of product testing involves much more than ordering a few tests and waiting for the results. As almost every industry undergoes some form of change and disruption thanks to the adoption of smarter electronics, the Internet of Things (IoT) and automation, the average customers that use your products have ever-increasing expectations. What’s more: They have faster ways of communicating their satisfaction or dissatisfaction with those products.
In addition, beyond the understandable desire to nurture brand and customer loyalty, you may have to deal with multiple governing agencies and compliance issues just to bring one product to market. These regulations are often adapted and created at breakneck speeds in an attempt to keep up with recent technological and mechanical breakthroughs. Just consider all of the recent developments in wireless telecommunications, aviation equipment and ruggedized military components.
Taken in total, if you’re looking to avoid costly product recalls and/or trying to remain in compliance with new regulations governing the quality and safety of your products, you’re most likely in need of much more than a simple reliability test. And it’s in precisely this kind of situation that Quality Testing Services, LLC is often called upon to supply our consulting and training services to forward-thinking companies like yours.
