In-house Warranty Services
REL offers organisations a comprehensive reverse supply chain testing and screening inspection process to review components and whole units received through the reverse supply chain for:
- No fault found (NFF)
- No trouble found (NTF)
- Potential warranty returns
When products test NFF, they can be introduced back into the supply chain to replenish finished goods as advance exchange inventory. When fault is identified, products may be repaired and/or refurbished to fulfill the same need. An advance exchange solution is the perfect option for retail end users who need to provide consumers with instant gratification, or enterprise end users who need to get mission-critical equipment running again as soon as possible.
Environmentally Friendly Recovery
A commonly untapped process, recovery of components for service spares inventory from a company’s reverse supply chain not only significantly reduces costs in procuring service inventory, but it also reduces waste disposal — introducing a green “reuse” theme into service parts management.
