Through their website of course! This technique requires understanding the notable website differences in terms of design and operation from a good one to a bad one.
Here’s what you can determine through their website
First and foremost, make a list of wire harness manufacturers whose website instantly catch your attention. Then start exploring the websites one by one. Read the text they have available and determine if they represent a company as a partner you can trust or not.
Look at their services page and see if the company has mentioned the right tools, resources, staff, and general ability to tackle your particular project. Then see if they have actually worked in your industry before.
Reading from their services tab, you should easily be able to tell if they have enough experience and expertise to take on a job. The client testimonials can also play a huge role here. See if they’ve got any testimonials.
Next, move on to their social media presence. How a company deals with its social media presence can say a lot about it. Is this particular manufacturer active on their social media profile? Look for the latest post and see the date and time to determine activity.
Great wire harness manufacturer’s share a lot about their work culture and occasionally post about their team and working environment. See if they are actively showing their team and workspace. If they have something to hide, they’ll never reveal these things on their social media pages.
Look for customer reviews and engagement. A well-received company has a lot of good fans, not in numbers, but in quality. Try commenting on one of their posts to see if they actually reply back. Do the same with private messaging.
These things may sound odd but they actually give you a lot of idea about a company, so much that you can pick a company to work with just on the basis of how they handle their social media.
Once you are satisfied, go into the interview phase and start with a detailed assessment.
