In 2016 we decided we needed a clear and consistent way of telling the users of our equipment that it had been thoroughly tested to an agreed and defined standard. With this in mind we came up with the 9 Point Prep.
In its simplest form the 9 Point Prep is a quality assurance process that we use to ensure that equipment is prepped and dispatched consistently, and without fault. This process is used to ensure that equipment faults and break downs are reduced dramatically on site, if not eliminated completely.
So what are the 9 points in our 9 Point Prep? Find out below:
Step one is to clean, inspect and ensure the item works fully as designed.
Second stage is a full software and firmware check to the latest manufacturers update.
Every time an item is prepped it gets fully PAT tested.
Now we fully restore the item to a factory default setting.
A full test of every operational part of item now takes place, ensuring 100% performance.
Give the item a thorough external clean, to maintain excellent condition.
The 9 Point Prep tape is applied to indicate and give peace of mind that the item has been fully tested.
Using advanced rental software, item information is logged and recorded for future reference.
Apply a tour label with clear information of what’s included in the case, as well as custom information if required.
