What does ‘Future-Proof’ mean?
At the highest level, the concept of future-proofing is to design a product in such a way that it is unlikely to become obsolete. In reality, very few, if any products are truly future-proof; however, a manufacturer’s commitment to the principles of future-proofing can drastically extend the life of a given product. The factors for determining the usable life vary from product to product and depend in large part to external factors.
For over 35 years, Watson has been designing and building dispatch center products specifically for 24/7 environments. Working side by side with our forward thinking customers has deeply influenced our manufacturing and product development philosophy. Most importantly, it has imbued our entire organization with a crystal clear understanding of how and why our products must be engineered for decades of performance. As a result, our definition of future proof extends beyond conventional measures of quality to encompass the entire product lifecycle from specification to replacement.
