LS puts its Simple warranty in the transfer market Thursday 6 March 2008 PDF Print Having shaken up the world of structured cabling last year when it became the first network infrastructure specialist to announce that all its installation would be audited by an independent third party, LS Simple has now revealed revolutionary plans to allow its warranties to be transferred with a building’s ownership. Historically, the 20 year warranty on structured cabling networks only applies to the company that originally paid for the installation. Should they then move on, the warranty cannot be transferred and the new owners must have the system completely re-audited before a new one can be issued. This can lead to delays and additional expense for both parties. But LS Simple has once again decided to turn the market on its head with another industry first. Confident that their systems will work for 20 years – or longer – they are now allowing their warranties to be sold on when a building changes hands. Paul Eo, regional manager Europe for LS Simple, explains: “Having to complete a system re-audited, whether it’s near the end of its warranty or at the start, is a hassle that most data centre managers could do without. “That’s why we’ve changed the way we do things. When we give out a warranty we stand by it - it’s a commitment that we will always honour, no matter who owns the building.” Last year LS Simple broke new ground when it engaged the leading structured cabling training company CNet Training to perform independent audits not just on competed installations, but also on work in progress. This means that as well as testing the actual operation of a network, CNet are also checking the standard of installation, ensuring that cabling is correctly bundled and the completed network meets the correct specifications. The move has proved popular throughout the industry, with leading installers happy to demonstrate the full quality of their work, while end-users receive even greater peace of mind. Eo adds: “The changes we’ve suit the contractors and installers we work with too, because in effect what they are saying by allowing an on-going audit is: ‘ we’re open, we’re honest and we’re good at what we do.’ “Installing a system requires trust; it’s a complex partnership often involving major investment. And for quality conscious companies, guaranteeing the quality of their work for the full life of a warranty should be simply second nature.” Ends For further press information please contact: Katrin Naefe on: 070 7470 7061 e-mail: email@example.com or Phil Turtle on: 070 7470 7080 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org The photograph which accompanies this release can be found here; http://fs.turtleconsulting.co.uk/PICS/LS_Simple_Paul%20Eo.JP... http://fs.turtleconsulting.co.uk/PICS/LS_Simple_keyboard_Ill...
