Your workshop needs to meet the manufacturers requirement first before they can appoint your company as an Authorized Service Center.
Good track record Manufacturer expect a company to have a good track record in the trade and have been around for a long time.
Accessibility Easy for a manufacturer to deliver products to you for repair besides it save time.
Space A company must have enough space to store their product. A light industrial unit will be fine for them.
Security An alarm system is essential, door and windows must be protected so they are difficult to force. Any break in will cause you to lose business.
Reception Area A proper reception area, neat and tidy workshop will reflect on them as well. First impression count a lot.
Tools and Test Equipment The variety of tools and test equipment available will be taken into account. An oscilloscope, frequency counter, SMD rework station is a certain requirement. The work bench should be of decent size and comes with a fluorescent lighting.
Employee There must be enough of employee to cope up with the work of repair.
