Purchasing new equipment can be costly, and for many companies, the extras can make all the difference in being able to afford a new machine. The challenge is knowing what to cut out and determining what is essential. While it may be possible to do without certain features, it’s impossible to do without the features that enhance productivity.

This often leads clients to buy solutions from the Far East because they are cheaper and still have all the functionality and productivity without the enormous costs. However, that’s not always the best solution. Very often, although the price of the device is cheaper, hidden costs can only become apparent after the machine has been purchased. These include costs such as shipping – and the method used – customs clearing and additional transportation upon arrival. Then, there are the things that may not be included, such as installation assistance, technical guidance, and backup support. These are factors that can be expensive. The final consideration is whether there is a warranty on the technology purchased and, more importantly, whether that warranty can be enforced if something goes wrong.

All of these are problems that can and have been experienced by companies and individuals buying solutions from China, whether on a direct basis from the factory or consignment importers. The solution is to deal with a company that has direct ties to the factory but understands the local market’s needs. One such company is AM.CO.ZA – a leading supplier to the local large-format signage market. AM.CO.ZA has been supplying local customers with high-quality solutions for more than 10 years. It has a deep understanding of the needs of its customers in the areas of CNC, routing, printing, vinyl cutting, and 3D printing.

Throughout this time, it has determined what its customers need and where their pain points are. In most cases, the most significant pain point is the cost. It has also seen that many of its customers have achieved a high enough level of self-sufficiency to do away with technical support and the warranty – two areas where high-costs can mean the difference between completing the purchase or not. In addition, it has been seen that some of its customers simply cannot afford the cost of the warranty or the technical assistance, even if they do not have the technical expertise.

To offer these clients the ability to buy the equipment they need, AM.CO.ZA has developed its Voetstoots approach to equipment supply. Voetstoots is a typically South African approach to technology, and basically, it means “as is”. This usually refers to second-hand equipment, but AM.CO.ZA has adapted this to mean equipment sold without any form of warranty or promise of after-sales service. It can do this for a few reasons. Firstly, its equipment is of a technological level that it seldom requires a warranty. Secondly, its equipment is so reliable that it seldom requires technical support. Finally, AM.CO.ZA can provide its clients who need technical support with the necessary assistance – albeit for a small additional cost. Clients are never left unassisted.
