What Would You Do?
In addition to asking big ethical questions, the popular television show “What Would You Do?” prompts viewers to use their imaginations. Imaginative thinking is a habit that all successful business leaders foster, and it leads to breakthroughs and solutions that yield a multitude of benefits, from increased sales to lower costs and improved productivity.
“What would you do?” is a question facilities managers and business owners might ask themselves when thinking about space utilization. What would you do with the extra floor space gained by installing a vertical lift storage system, for example?
- If you’re a retailer, you could expand your sales floor or store additional inventory without added real estate costs.
- If you manage a health care facility, you could expand a lab to provide more services, or you could comply with OSHA regulations for uncluttered hallways.
- If you manage a law enforcement property room, you can organize your evidence files and containers without having to resort to the unbudgeted expense of off-site storage.
- If you’re a librarian, you can add more stacks to serve readers and researchers.
- If you operate a warehouse facility, you can increase inventory storage and use your overhead space efficiently.
- If you’re an office manager, you can add staff without adding to your footprint, or expand the reception area to accommodate clients better, or maybe even install a mini-gym to enhance employee health and fitness.
A vertical lift or carousel system recovers as much as 75% of your storage floor space. Imagine what you could do with all that free real estate. John Lennon said, “You may say I’m a dreamer.” Dream big, put your imagination to work, and enjoy the boost to your business’s bottom line.
