Should You Purchase RF Test Equipment?

Testing equipment is a challenge for any OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) or for companies that are hired to do contract work on the part of a project as a contract manufacturer or part supplier.

Unless your engineers and in-house design and development team are familiar with the different RF test equipment on the market, simply making the choice of which system to purchase is going to be time-consuming. This is a time that could be spent on actual development. Price and budget factors will always be an issue if you buy.

Trying to sell it yourself is going to take time, effort and lot of emails and phone calls. Simply storing the equipment can even be a challenge as it...

There will always be those in the group that want to use the same fundraisers that have happened in the past that may have had good or even great results. There will also be a group of people on the organizing committee that wants to try something new, trendy or different. This does have positive aspects as something new, and different creates a buzz and brings in new participates and generates community interest. Ideally, to avoid bogging down on the theme and type of fundraiser, spend some time in tasking all committee members to bring in fundraiser ideas. Once you have the idea in place, it will then be easier to find a fundraiser company offering the products you want to offer. Look for Support There are only a few fundraising companies that will assist an organization with fundraiser ideas. These companies will have personalized consultants that will work with the organization to assist in the fundraiser and to provide ideas, checklists and organizational tips to streamline the process and avoid common mistakes. Often the organizations, including schools, try to make fundraising too complicated. Simple and short are the keywords that should be considered with virtually all fundraising activities.
