How can it ever be possible to compare the price of data recovery without an initial assessment
You only have to do a quick search on Google for Data recovery to get a true glimpse of how competitive an arena this particular sector of the IT industry actually is, and if you dig a little deeper it becomes very apparent to the trained eye the tactics and strategies many companies go to, to capture the market the latest of which is cost comparison websites.
Cost comparison sites are springing up all over the world and to a great extent most of these will give a fair comparison of the market given any defined set of terms.
This is of course a relatively simple thing to do given that the product or service is fixed or all variations in terms are available on the main website of the companies being compared.
So how can you possible do a cost comparison website when it comes to a service without first establishing the actual problem in the first place. Also if other data recovery companies are not happy to sign up to such a service even if you could conceivably do a fair comparison, how could it it be fair if the very industry that is benig compared does not buy into the concept of services cost comparison websites, and indeed why should they?
The big loser here will of course be the customer who will no doubt be pretty desparate to find a solution and get their data back especially if it is business data or treasured family photo’s or other important information. They will be led to believe they are getting the best price based on independent data when quite the opposite is true.
Most reputable data recovery companies will of course not wish to see customers put in this situation.
I don’t think any recovery expert would disagree that there is simply is not a one solution fits all approach to data recovery, and assessment of the facts can be indeed dictate the actually recovery procedure that actually takes place if you want to have the best chance of full data recovery.
Product comparison websites are here to stay and in most cases offer a fair and reasonable cost comparison where most industry businesses subscribe, but even product comparison sites are starting to crack as the big players pull their support in favour of supplying an truly independent quote …..their own.
Product comparison websites of data recovery services simply will never be accurate as not enough details are known upfront and actual solutions can be too varied so these comparison sites should be avoided or taken with a big dose of salt.
