1. Ser­vice­abil­ity. Prompt and proper ser­vic­ing is very im­por­tant, as de­fault­ing on ser­vice con­tracts might cause un­nec­es­sary ex­pen­di­ture or de­lays for the clients, putting them off.

2. Rate con­tract. A favourable rate con­tract is im­por­tant, es­pe­cially in the case of big con­tracts.

3. Com­pat­i­bil­ity. Com­pat­i­bil­ity with legacy in­stru­ments is a ma­jor fac­tor for big com­pa­nies as they have to en­sure com­pat­i­bil­ity be­tween the large num­ber of equip­ment that they main­tain. More­over, rad­i­cally new equip­ment might also re­quire ex­ten­sive re-train­ing of staff han­dling the equip­ment.

4. Brand im­age and fea­tures. If a de­ci­sion needs to be made be­tween two prod­ucts of the same price and fea­tures, con­sider also the brand im­age of the com­pany and any pro­pri­etary fea­tures that they of­fer.
