VIDEO: 6 Critical Elements of School District Copier Contracts in 2018Ethan Davis
If your district is replacing copiers in 2018 and you want to improve performance, vendor accountability and eliminate headaches, there are six critical elements you’ll need in your new contract.
First, to get the most life out of your devices, require your vendor guarantees to replace parts according to the manufacturer’s recommended replacement schedule.
Second, to avoid unexpected cost increases over the contract term, get five-year fixed pricing with pricing options for the sixth and seventh years if you’re purchasing.
Third, to protect your team against lemon devices and poor performance, ask vendors to guarantee impressions between calls per device rather than average uptime of the entire fleet.
Fourth, to make sure your vendor doesn’t treat you like “a little guy,” ask for monetary compensation for missing average and maximum response times.
Fifth, to eliminate the risk of a bad relationship, require vendors provide:
- 30 Day 100% Money Back Guarantee
- 60 Month Impression Guarantee
- Performance Bond
Sixth, to make sure all your hard work isn’t rendered worthless by some fine print in their contract, write your own contract instead of signing theirs.
Sound impossible? It’s not! We’ve already helped hundreds of districts across the country get these 6 Critical Elements written into their contracts.
