What can an after-sales service partnership do for your printer manufacturer business?
Work with us, and we’ll help you deliver high-quality and reliable after-sales services, including planned preventative maintenance and emergency remote and onsite support for printing press breakdowns.
You don’t need to expand your after-sales services footprint and increase staff. An after-sales service partnership with us reduces your overheads and costs.
With Veritek as part of your after-sales support network, your customers can meet tight printing deadlines and maximise productivity.
Better still, you can enhance your customers’ satisfaction.
Your after-sales service partnership options include:
- Supplementing your in-house team for project-related work
- Providing a complete outsourced remote support and onsite field engineering solution
How a field engineering service partnership enhances your customers' satisfaction
Our core values of partnership, trust and accountability drive every decision and interaction with our partners and their customers. Industrial printing presses are often subjected to heavy use, leading to wear and tear on parts. With Veritek as part of your after-sales services support network...
You can expect:
Ensure optimal printing performance
We can help you deliver your preventative maintenance programme to ensure your customers’ industrial printing presses always operate at their best. Moreover, your customers can deliver the highest level of print quality while minimising downtime and maximising productivity.
Ensure printing machinery reliability
When we deliver your regular maintenance, we’ll identify potential problems early on, preventing them from becoming larger and more costly in terms of time and money. Moreover, we’ll reduce the risk of unexpected industrial printing press failure and downtime.
But that’s not all. When your customer requires a repair, our fast-acting remote support helpdesk and onsite field engineers minimise downtime and quickly get printing presses back in good working order.
Extend the life of printing press machinery
By identifying and addressing potential issues early on, our OEM-trained technicians keep your customers’ printing presses in good condition, preventing the need for premature replacement.
Reduce the cost of ownership
By preventing downtime and extending printing presses’ lifespans, our OEM-trained technicians can help your customers avoid costly repairs and replacements.
Deliver a positive customer experience
You can expect Veritek’s field engineers to uphold your brand values and work hard to position themselves as an extension of your team.
