Flexible Storage Can Save Your Business Money
The credit crunch has forced many businesses to review their operating procedures in an attempt to make their company run more efficiently and more cost-effectively. Many companies have implemented flexible working patterns and JS Online, leading supplier of office interiors and ergonomic seating can provide ideas and solutions for new, more efficient working practices.
One of the major expenses a business faces is the cost of its space. Many companies have reviewed their premises requirements and have found that they can reduce the floor space they need (and therefore their rents) by adopting flexible working practices.
Chris Johnson from JS Online who specialise in office furniture and visitor office chairs said, “Rather than staff being tied to a particular desk by having a traditional pedestal and documentation requirements, we have found that by providing flexible office storage, companies can utilise their desk space more effectively, with every employee retaining easy access to their own documents and filing.”
Many companies are now using lockers for their employee’s personal effects which increases the flexibility of the office space available as each individual can work at any desk. Companies have been able to reduce their floor space by up to thirty per cent by reducing the number of desk spaces required.
Mr Johnson added, “We at JS Online now offer a large range of innovative and imaginative office storage solutions including racking, shelving, mobile personal storage and modular storage with interchangeable shelves, cabinets, flippers and doors. Allowing businesses to use their premises more efficiently means they can make significant reductions on their office costs as they do not need to rent the same amount of floor space.”
By implementing these cost-saving changes to filing and storage systems, companies are able to become more streamlined which will help them not only ride out the recession but become leaner, more profitable businesses in the future when the economy recovers.
