We buy some products from which we want a basic performance and we do not want much more nor would be willing to pay a lot more for a product that looks to give us greater value. Of course living in a market driven world such products which give just a basic performance are few and far in between now and even products with basic functions do have premium and low cost options. For example a drinking straw may not have much to do besides allow you to suck up liquid easily but you can get better one which can bend at an angle of your choice as you suck through it.
But such additional value is not a major one for us and we would be quite happy to use a basic straw if we needed to. On the other hand there are times when the additional value is very useful for us and at such times the value is at a premium. And an example is a weighing scale you use for commercial purposes which weighs expensive commodities. It is not just the value of the commodity being weighed that makes the operation critical it is the trust involved between the two business entities who are transacting the deal that makes it necessary to make an accurate weight measurement every single time.
If for some equipment related reason an incorrect weight is reported then the party suffering the loss will find out much later by which time it may be too late to set matters right. There may have been a knock on effect with other problems getting caused. And since prevention is much better than a cure it is very important that the weighing scale perform reliably.
So important that the administration takes it upon itself to ensure only the best scales are used for such an application. And so you have the choice of buying an NTEP scale that has been exhaustively tested for accuracy, reliability and durability. You can opt for an NTEP floor scale or some other NTEP scale suited to your needs. You can see the latest floor scales at www.buyfloorscale.com.
