The Basics of a Data Sheet
Often seen as a simple specification sheet, 1-2 page product brochure or product page on a website, the data sheet provides customers with critical, detailed information to support their buying decisions.
The list below shows some of the details you can include in a data sheet.
- Compatibility – is it compatible with customer’s current environment?
- Security standards – how safe is the solution? Very important in the cloud.
- Product features – what can the product do?
- Photos and/or screenshots – what does it look like? Screenshots, data-centre pictures.
- Performance statistics – how fast, large, capable is the solution?
- Awards won for the product or service – how well recognised and respected is it?
- Physical specification for hardware – will the product work in the customer location?
- Contact and office details – who to call for more information?
- … and more
The data sheet provides the key information for technical I.T. personnel to review, compare and make buying recommendations. An incomplete description of your product or service will hurt your company’s chances in the product selection process.
