Reliability Testing for Retail Environments

Assess the quality of your products

Retail Operations Equipment Reliability Testing

To be competitive in the retail marketplace, retail support equipment must prove to be both safe and reliable in a variety of environmental conditions. Design validation is the effort of testing a device in accordance with defined standards to ensure that it will perform within the limits of its intended use and environment.

The reliability testing group at TÜV SÜD is experienced in conducting qualification testing to the most stringent standards. We apply stresses to the product to expose weaknesses, supporting the concept of heightened quality and continuous improvement.

Product Performance and Durability Testing

At TÜV SÜD we test and evaluate a wide variety of retail support equipment such as point of sale terminals, card readers, self checkout systems, receipt printers and more. Through traceable and repeatable testing we can verify the quality of almost anything that is used regularly across multiple retail locations. Quality verification or comparison testing ensures the retailer is getting the most for their investment.

Retail Operations Consumables Reliability Testing

Does a cheaper paper product really save you money?

Consumables play a key role in the support of retail store operations. At TÜV SÜD we test and evaluate a wide variety of products such as business paper, labels, receipt paper, plastic bags, paper bags, latex gloves, paper towels, towel dispensers, batteries, carts, etc.

Through traceable and repeatable testing, we can verify the quality of almost anything that is used regularly across multiple retail locations. Quality verification or comparison testing ensures the retailer is getting the most for their investment. Ongoing efforts also protect the retailer over time with continuing quality compliance testing. This ensures the items delivered this month/year are of the same quality as products procured last month/year.
