A day in the life of… a Technical Director of a Leading Systems Integrator
Voltimum’s Product Test Introduction Product Testing gives Voltimum users the possibility to test a product from a Voltimum manufacturing partner. The carefully selected user must test the product, record results on a questionnaire and send them back to Voltimum. After the test, the user can keep the product for free. The manufacturer cannot change the content of the product test results, but has the ability to approve/disapprove publishing the results. Upon manufacture approval, Voltimum will publish the results in its newsletter and on the portal. Why? Product promotion/ introduction/ launch Product feedback/ improvement Generate future product ideas Customers value the opinions of other customers (credible source) The Product Test Area Voltimum will create an area on the portal that will display the current available test opportunities, completed tests and will link to the test application form and terms and conditions. Voltimum will prompt users to connect to the Product Test area through the newsletters and possibly through the homepage.
Product Test Process Preparation: 1. The manufacturer provides the to-be-tested-product information to Voltimum 2. The manufacturer determines how many users should participate. Voltimum suggests 3 or 5 participants 3. Voltimum and the manufacturer define the dates for the test Application phase: 4. Voltimum announces the test in the newsletter and on the test area 5. The application phase on the portal takes approximately a week 6. Voltimum provides all applicant candidates and their forms to the manufacturer Pre-Test phase: 7. The manufacturer chooses the tester within the agreed period 8. Voltimum Products Test Questionnaires have five standard questions and the manufacturer can add five of their own questions 9. Voltimum informs the chosen tester and sends them the questionnaire and a letter of agreement. Before the test can start, the tester has to sign the letter of agreement and send it back to Voltimum. The letter of agreement informs the user that they have to fulfil their obligation of filling out a detailed questionnaire in order to keep the product for free.
10. After the tester submits their agreement, Voltimum informs the manufacturer to send the product to the tester. 11. Test phase 12. The tester has to inform Voltimum when they receive the product. They then have 3-4 weeks to test the product 13. At the end of the test stage, Voltimum obtains the results and provides them to the manufacturer. Communication of the results: 14.

Technical Expertise Area Continues to be one of the most popular areas on Voltimum. 1233 questions in our Q&A archive. Growth is not as good as it could be due to inconsistent answering times of experts. Some experts/partners have good systems in place, whereas others need to be prompted to answer questions. Marketing teams should make sure they know the email address and experts in their own company. If you can check with your technical teams to see if they know their Voltimum log-ins and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if they require any help. email@example.com
