Testing and tagging (or Test and Tag) refers to the process of inspecting electrical equipment and appliances to test their level of safety. Testing and tagging involves both visual inspections of the appliances, as well asregular, periodic testing using measuring devices. All testing and tagging is designed to ensure that appliances are safe for use, whether at home or in the workplace. Test and tag inspectors will usually determine whether an appliance is defective, or missing vital components, by looking at them, before employing devices to test their safety in areas like insulation resistance and polarity.

As a further feature clients will have access to edit or append the data stored on the Testel server. This means contact details can be changed, new items can be purchased at a site and their details can be added to the database by authorized personnel, and so on.

Even if you're unaware of what franchising is all about, you've probably heard the word being used; most likely you've heard it in passing referring to fast food giants like McDonalds or general stores like 7-Eleven.
Essentially, franchising is a way of distributing goods and services via a two level structure, involving a franchisor and a franchisee. The franchisor, which is typically an organisation, grants the rights for another person, or franchisee, to sell and promote a product using their brand name.
The most obvious benefit of a franchising system is that successfully unites significantly smaller operations under one umbrella, where they can each leverage the brand name that has been accumulated over time for their own benefit. That has been the driving factor in the success behind global conglomerations like 7-Eleven and McDonalds today.
In developed franchises, each franchise is given the opportunity to sell products and services that already enjoy high brand recognition. Moreover, each franchise has access to upper level management they can refer to for help in running their businesses. The success of both the franchisee and franchisor is dependent on each other, with franchisees responsible for expanding the brand.
However the franchisee has the same incentives to grow as an independent business, earning the right to profit from the efficiency of their franchise. This allows motivated franchise operators the opportunity to expand their market while reaping the rewards of doing so.
