What to Look for in an Enclosure Cooling System Vendor Supplier?
When looking for an enclosure cooling system vendor supplier, there are several factors you must consider. Of course, the quality of the equipment itself is a primary consideration, but many manufacturers offer products of comparable quality. When you are evaluating multiple providers and you are satisfied with the quality of their product lines, the intangible factors become more important.
What to Look for in a Vendor
Many enclosure cooling system manufacturers offer high-quality units with a strong track record of success. This does not mean that they are all equal when it comes to a forging a supplier relationship.
Some of the factors you should consider when evaluating a vendor supplier for enclosure cooling systems include:
- Warranty – Does the manufacturer offer a warranty that extends to your customers? If so, how long does it last and what does it cover? The better the warranty, the more time and money you will save, and it will instill confidence in your customers.
- Shipping times – What are the average shipping times the vendor supplier can offer? Perhaps more importantly, do they meet the shipping times that they promise? A delay in the delivery of one component of your enclosure system can cause larger problems down the line. Be sure to select a vendor that can deliver on promises when it comes to shipping.
- Variety – Electrical enclosures come in a broad range of sizes, which consequently require a range of cooling system sizes. Working with a single vendor supplier that can accommodate all of your enclosure cooling system needs will simplify your operations and help keep costs down. Make sure the provider you choose can meet your cooling system needs for the smallest and largest enclosures you sell, and everything in between.
- Ongoing support – If your customer has a question about the enclosure cooling system they purchased from you, who do they turn to? For minor questions you may be able to quickly and easily provide support with an online FAQ or a comprehensive manual, but more difficult questions can tie up your support staff and cost you time and money. However, if you work with a manufacturer that is committed to providing ongoing support to your customers, you can save money and offer better service.
