Sign Up with a Turnkey Solution Provider

Advertisement

Before you sign up for a turnkey solution, it is a good idea to make a list of your requirements. Once you've found the turnkey solution that looks like it will meet your needs, carefully read the terms and conditions of use to make sure you haven't missed anything. Note what your understanding is of the fees, contract terms, services, features, and technical support, and look for specials.

List Your Requirements before Signing Up
Before you sign up for a turnkey solution, it is a good idea to make a list of your requirements to keep track of your needs. It's easy to get wrapped up in a particular turnkey's package offering and lose sight of your goals. You may find that after listing your particular needs, you will see that the turnkey that looked like the best option isn't as geared to your needs as it should be.

Search for Specials
Turnkey solutions have made great changes recently. Increased competition has driven down prices and improved features. Talk with a customer service representative about charges. Reps are sometimes authorized to waive setup fees or make other concessions to secure your business.

Sign a Contract
Once you've found the turnkey solution that looks like it will meet your needs, carefully read the terms and conditions of use to make sure you haven't missed anything. This is a contract, and the language is written as such. It is a good idea to write out what your understanding is of the fees, contract terms, services, features, and technical support. Contact a representative from the company to clarify your understanding and your rights in the event of service failure. Note whom you talked with and any statements he or she made about the agreement.
