Why choose quality?
Everyone, at some point in our lives, will have experienced the headache of choosing between quality versus the price of a product or service. It is often thought that high quality means paying a higher price.
We all live in an age where budgeting dominates many buying decisions, small and great. Maybe society could be working backwards where; in a given scenario the ultimate goal of purchasing a product or service is quality. What follows is the creation of a budget before knowing the required amount of financial input to achieve that goal. This type of behaviour is like putting the cart before the horse.
Sometimes we fool ourselves in believing we have a good deal when we are able to find a product or service that fits the budget, but this is not always the case. In reality, accepting lower quality products and services may be the result of having to correct what was done incorrectly the first time, replacing a product before the end of its potential lifespan, or even purchasing an equally attractive product or service without learning from our mistakes
The price doesn’t always reflect the quality
However, high prices do not always mean the highest quality and therefore assessing a purchase and its ability to meet your needs is essential. How do you assess a purchase? You need to look at the following:
1. What do you want the product/service needs to do for you? This means separating your needs from what you want.
2. Research into the past performance of the product or service you are looking for by speaking to other people who have used the same product or service.
At Jelka we are inspired by quality and constantly strive for the best products and services possible. We believe that quality means "fit for purpose" and therefore we make sure our products and services are well suited to the expectations of the client.
Always remember this quote from Benjamin Franklin: "The Bitterness of Poor Quality Remains Long After the Sweetness of Low Price is Forgotten"
