No matter what sector you are servicing or working within, the need for speed is vital to the successful day to day operations of every business, from small to medium sized enterprises to the global conglomerates that still manage to keep ahead of the rest. Two working or business days was considered to be an acceptable industry standard in responding to service requirements on behalf of customers and clients.
But the business environment has become a lot more demanding and competitive since and it is now acceptable practice, sometimes abused or taken for granted, to process 24 hour turnaround time requests. But the need for speed is critical to certain sectors. The health services industry is a typical example because stakeholders across this sector are all required to respond appropriately to life and death situations.
It goes without saying that all medical professionals are fulfilling vital requirements within the day to day running of their surgeries and laboratories. Speaking of laboratories, highly qualified, trained and experienced technicians are servicing their medical professionals with their trademark surgical handpiece repair, servicing and maintenance requirements. These professionals are operating within two working day timeframes.
One of the reasons for this would have to do with the need to maintain precision during all work processes. No one, not least a doctor and his patient, would wish to be the recipient of shoddy workmanship, and especially since all these role players are involved in critical or life and death situations. Responding effectively to medical professionals’ requirements remains possible because of effective time management.
Work that is completed must still be put through a quality assurance test to ensure that all surgical hand pieces are returned to practitioners in a condition that meets manufacturers’ standards.
