PLANO, Texas (PRESS RELEASE – May 21, 2009) – To help customers get the most out of their hardware, Wasp Barcode Technologies has launched WaspProtectâ„¢, an extended warranty program that covers Wasp barcode scanners, barcode printers and portable data terminals.
Dealing with a broken device can have a significant negative impact on the productivity of small businesses, which have an even greater need than large companies when it comes to ensuring that technology equipment they purchase is always ready to use.
“Now more than ever, small businesses need to squeeze every bit of value from their investment in hardware,” said Tom O’Shea, general manager for Wasp. “WaspProtect is an equipment protection plan that is designed especially for small business. It is affordable and, most importantly, provides the timely turnaround on repairs that small businesses demand.”
WaspProtect guarantees a 48-hour turnaround on repairs for U.S. customers. The extended warranty period covers barcode printers and barcode scanners for up to four years and portable data terminals for up to two years. The comprehensive coverage includes both accidental breakage and normal wear-and-tear, as well as replacement of cables, batteries and power supplies.
WaspProtect is available directly from Wasp, as well as its channel partners and resellers. Customers may buy WaspProtect at the time of equipment purchase or within 30 days. WaspProtect prices vary by individual item but start as low as $19.
