Buying refurbished and second-hand conference phone software and accessories

Buying refurbished and second-hand conference phone software and accessories
While there’s a good chance you’re incredibly meticulous when it comes to sourcing and buying equipment – especially if its vital to the long term success and operation of your business – the high costs associated with running an enterprise means you’re simultaneously on the hunt for a bargain too.

This combination of looking for the best possible product but also the best possible deal can lead some entrepreneurs to what’s called ‘the grey market’ – where refurbished or second-hand products are sold for a fraction of the price that sell for brand new.

Hence the name, the lines of legality are often blurred here, and while such transactions take place through legal distribution channels, they are often unintended by the manufacturer.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, a high percentage of products sold in this secondary market, are in fact illegal, as they are either counterfeit or stolen.

Although said knock-off products will often look and feel identical to the real deal, they’ll likely cause you a range of problems with regards quality, connectivity and possibly security.

Furthermore, the likelihood is that you won’t be able to avail of any licenses, warranty or support from the manufacturer your product purports to be from – meaning you’ll be left on your own and seriously out of pocket when something, presumably, goes wrong.

However, some genuine refurbished and second-hand conference phone software and accessories do exist – but only through trusted and reputable suppliers.
