How a field engineering service partnership enhances your customers' satisfaction
Our core values of partnership, trust and accountability drive every decision and interaction we make with our partners and their customers.
You can expect our team to:
Respond to problems with digital cinema products quickly
There’s no need for you to expand your facility footprint and increase staff. A repair partnership with us reduces your overheads and costs.
When your cinema operator customer requires a repair, our fast-acting remote helpdesk and onsite field engineers minimise downtime and quickly get digital cinema equipment back in good working order.
Increase digital cinema product performance and uptime
Cinema operators rely on your equipment to attract more cinema-goers and deliver memorable movie experiences.
We’ll work with your customers to plan maintenance downtime around showtimes, so they can ensure digital cinema equipment delivers razor-sharp imagery, the finest picture quality and energy efficiency.
Moreover, you can expect us to maximise your customers’ digital cinema equipment functionality and performance by delivering planned preventative maintenance as prescribed by you at your customers’ sites.
Increase the lifespan of digital cinema products
Planned preventative maintenance helps cinema operators meet their demand for reliable projection, audio and automation systems and keep equipment operating smoothly and efficiently for longer.
Ensure availability and readiness of equipment
When corrective maintenance is required, Veritek can either provide onsite repair or, if needed, organise swap units, while we repair your digital cinema equipment at our fully equipped repair centre.
