Who are we?
Founded in 1989 as a designer and manufacturer of test and measurement equipment on behalf of many industry leading Telecom companies, Metrodata Ltd has retained these core competencies modernising and adapting them to meet the ever-changing needs of an evolving marketplace.
What do we do?
We are a network access company that focuses on making easy to use networking products that meet specific needs across an extensive range of technologies such as Ethernet, Fibre, DWDM, LAN, serial, SDH/PDH and ATM.
Why you should work with us
We believe it is more important to look for long-term value in a partnership with your suppliers, such as Metrodata, than the often knee jerk reaction of just getting the best price.
Shaving a few cents off the total cost of a product is no help if the quality is below standard and the equipment does not arrive when you need it.
If you can look past the final contract price, here are some areas to research prior to making your final decision and engaging with Metrodata to buy your new products.
Metrodata is a manufacturer based in the UK, which is a politically stable environment for trading, so you are unlikely to get sudden fluctuations in labour relations or severe political upheaval that could disrupt your supply of products.
The UK also offers a relatively stable weather zone for world trading leaving you free from concerns about your manufacturing or deliveries being disrupted by hurricanes, tornados, severe snow, rain or drought.
Having agreed the contract price of your equipment, getting it delivered can on occasion present your next variable. Metrodata has an automated shipping quotation system that scans the quality couriers for the lowest cost route to your location, depending on your requested shipping instructions to us. You also have the choice of instructing your own shipping agent to collect from us if the rates are better.
We want you to be confident that you have engaged with us as a quality supplier, so our web site offers easily accessible Product Information data sheets and user manuals together with application specific White Papers that explain how your business will benefit from the use of our technology. There is no mystery to what we are offering but you may wish to chat to us, so you understand how well we meet your needs.
Our customers buy from us in quantities from prototyping one’s and two’s up to low thousands in volume. We have the capacity to increase our manufacturing volumes given reasonable notice. The lead time for low volumes of many products is often next day scaling to no more than 12 weeks for much higher volumes.
The products are designed for customer installation via simple menu driven commands. Should a Dead-on Arrival product be encountered then we have a fast process to secure you a replacement, see the web site instructions. During the first 30 days we offer a FOC technical support package during normal UK office hours and it is possible to purchase a 24x7x365 4 hour on site response maintenance package for full aftercare.
As with most of the industry we offer payment terms of Net 30 days for credit worthy buyers. We are also able to discuss alternative payment terms related to project-based business.
On occasion we have been requested for a reference customer and we are always happy to oblige by finding you one as closely linked to your business area as possible.
Metrodata is an ISO9001:2015 compliant company using this quality standard to run our business.
We produce products for the telecoms market which is fully regulated so each Product Datasheet includes references to the relevant Standards met by that product.
While this is not an exhaustive list of the things you may consider, we trust it has covered enough important aspects, that you will now consider giving us a call to talk more on 01784 744700.
