Corporate Facts

Quality Process

Postec Data Systems Limited is committed to providing its stakeholders with high quality and reliable products and services based on the pursuit of affordable excellence and is committed to ensure stakeholders always receive products and service on time and that their stated needs are met in full.

This is more than just a “wish” – the provision of high quality products and services is an integral part of Postec’s company philosophy of only providing third line marketing and technical support. If Postec’s products and services were not of a high standard of reliability, Postec’s sales channels would not accept the responsibility of providing the first and second line servicing for the Postec products handled by them.

As Managing Director, I therefore believe it is essential to this Company’s operations that stakeholders are provided with high quality products at an affordable price. Products with minimal down time and easy to maintain; products that they can sell, install and accept first line support for with confidence.

The stakeholders must also be provided with quality third line support from Postec whenever this is necessary. This support must incorporate all support aspects; good product documentation; good product training and prompt response to the markets’ needs.

This is Postec’s quality philosophy, a philosophy followed, encouraged and accepted by Postec’s staff. In our resolve to maintain (and where possible improve) this approach, Postec has implemented a Quality Assurance Management System conforming to the requirements of ISO 9001.

I fully endorse this policy statement and the Quality management System we have adopted.

1.4 The Distributor warrants that it will only give the same warranty as set out in this Clause 1, to its customers, as provided in this Agreement.

1.5 Without limiting the limitations of liability contained elsewhere in this Agreement, POSTEC’s liability in relation to the supply of the Products and the Products themselves is limited to the replacement or repair of the Products in respect of which such liability arises. POSTEC will have no further liability or responsibility for any direct, indirect or consequential injury, loss or damage whatsoever and howsoever arising whether in contract, tort or otherwise.
