How to Maximize Service Call Profits and Minimize Wasted Time

Son of Samurai


In this webinar recording for the ages, the Samurai explains everything you need to know to run a successful service call, minimizing return trips and maximizing profits. He covers the steps you need to take before the call and how you need to think while on the call. All of this information is neatly and concisely presented as The Samurai System for Service Call Excellence -- a must-know for any tech who wants to make the most money for the least headache.

The topics covered include:

  • Developing a System for ensuring accurate problem diagnoses on the first trip
  • Common model number mistakes
  • How to avoid looking like a dummy in front of the customer
  • Walking into the service call with a troubleshooting game plan already in mind
  • Selecting strategic troubleshooting locations to eliminate unnecessary disassembly
  • Understanding explicit and implicit specifications and how to use them to effectively troubleshoot
  • Recognizing when specifications are omitted
  • Analytical and non-analytical troubleshooting techniques vs. playing Lotto 
  • Formulating clear and concise Problem Statements from customer descriptions and using that Problem Statement to direct your troubleshooting
  • War-gaming the Problem Statement on the schematic to identify the Load of Interest (LOI) 
  • Handling situations where multiple boards are involved with no specifications 
  • Why we don’t rely on ohms or volts to test AC circuits
