RMA Procedures

For customers sending repairs directly to us we have earlier released our new web based RMA system. The goal is to make the repair process more efficient and faster by the use of a web-based form where all relevant information can be submitted to us as easy as possible.

At the same time we are simplifying the repair options, and are now for example offering a fixed price for repairs outside warranty.
