San Francisco, California – (WiredPRNews.com) — For many companies, the impact of a defective product can be a disaster in the making. There are so many aspects of a defective product to consider, including financial liability, psychological factors and social effects.
The financial aspect is a fairly obvious one. Defective products often cause recalls and those results in lost revenue. This is not only a financial blow for the product that is defective, but also for future products from the same company. Not only are you out the money you spent to manufacture the item, but you also lose the money spent marketing and advertising for it as well as the financial implications of fixing and/or recalling the product.
However, the social and psychological factors are even worse, in some ways. Once the usually-trusting public purchases a defective product from a particular company or organization, they no longer blindly trust in anything you sell again. From now on, products touted by a company that has had a recall or a large amount of defective products is looked at with suspicion and distrust. Recovering from that is difficult and can be a public relations nightmare.
It takes a sound investment in the proper manufacturing process that will ensure that the number of defective products released by a given company stays relatively low. Companies that make this investment will find that their customers are much more likely to believe in their product and thereby, purchase them on a regular basis.
For the public, purchasing a defective product can feel like you have been shortchanged for the money and time you spent purchasing an item. The best way to avoid running into this issue is to purchase products from companies you can trust and have a good record of accomplishment of little to no defective products. This is the best way to ensure that you are making the best investment possible in everything you buy.
