Jim likes to think that the cables themselves know when you don’t test them, and that’s when they decide to malfunction. It is incredibly improtant that you, as an installer, test every single cable you install. Why? There are two very valuable reasons:
- Testing will greatly reduce the need for go-backs, which can be extremely costly
- Testing proves you are an ethical and reliable installer, which will improve your business
So, test your cables, and your costs go down while your profits go up. Simple, important, and yet easy to forget.
You can buy tools to make this necessity a much easier and mostly painless process. In this next video, Jim discusses our newest product, a Tester by Greenlee. It comes with all the tools you need to make sure you aren’t cutting corners – and cutting profits.
