Teguar account representatives have an in-depth knowledge of products in our markets and work very closely with product engineers. They are aware of the nuances of product choice. For instance, if you choose a high brightness screen, it will increased the unit's power draw, so you may need a box PC and monitor solution, instead of an all-in-one solution. Account representatives will help you think through these types of scenarios.
Teguar representatives are familiar with the particulars of specific applications and know what questions to ask. To get started, submit a Contact Us form and check “Product Consultation”. You will then get an email back to set up a good time for a complimentary call from an account representative.
Light Design Customization
Product customization can happen two ways.
- Customizations that are listed in the product specs usually do not require extra engineering work or significant changes in manufacturing process. These can be ordered at the cost of the product, with no added design fees.
- There are many light customization options that are not listed per product, but are easily doable. These can be done at no cost, if your order is over the MOQ (Minimum Ordered Quantity), or at a cost, for smaller orders.
Engineering Cost Associated
In Depth Product Customization and Original Design
Some projects require or desire a bit more. If your project is one-of-a-kind, it may need a one-of-a-kind solution. This could mean extensively modifying a product or building a product from the ground up. Teguar regularly works with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) to customize a computer that fits perfectly with the total solution they are providing to the end customer. In many cases this service comes with NRE fees (Non Refundable Engineering fee) that are paid up front or at time of first sample. For high quantity projects, the NRE fee can be added into the blanket purchase order per unit cost or waived.
