Productive In MIami - Part I

The question of productivity is in the forefront of anyone running a business today, not only here in Miami but all over the world. When it comes to office environments we are often quick to design very traditional spaces without really taking into consideration modern trends and solutions to very old questions and business issues. 

Let's take the traditional sales function. The given is: they must touch down in an office, make calls, discuss action plans with management and spend the rest of the time pounding the streets. At the end of the day, your business depends on those sales people to produce. As you can see below, if you allow for those traditional sales function to create a cozy hole for themselves they will create a very counter productive space.

Instead we the management, the business owners need to emphasize the structure we want followed by creating the space that creates the workflow we want implemented. Along with paperless practices, minimal storage capabilities and quick touchdown spaces, we can bring forth much desired change without encountering much resistance. Psychologically speaking, let's take the playthings away, the clutter, the distractions and create interaction that gets us back to business.

What You Should Expect

In the world of office furniture there are countless options to choose from. For the most part, you can find the same array of products at different office furniture dealers but the key differences begin to present themselves once the project begins to be executed. Before you get to that point however, you should also expect a set of recommendations that create a solution; from the single office to the one hundred cubicle installation. These recommendations should reflect both the needs of your organization as well as your budget goals. 

A clear understanding of the furniture being sold is a given but an experienced organization should be able to put you at ease when it comes to making sure that a delivery truck does not simply drop-off a bunch of furniture at your front door and instead provide a complete set of services that gets you and your organization up and running quickly. Finding a furniture and service provider that has these goals and expertise as an essential part of their core values should be your priority to ensure the results meet all of your expectations. If you are in Miami, Broward or West Palm Beach, Office Furniture Warehouse is that solution

Your Office, Thriving

When undisturbed, life on our planet thrives. When nature is allowed to take its most natural course, we see a constant development of life, some species survive, some don't. Life however, always thrives.

Life within any environment can thrive, when the goals and aspirations of its inhabitants meshes well with its surroundings. Your office in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale or West Palm Beach is no exception. As a business owner or manager, not only are you responsible for the final product or process of your company. You are also making decisions on how "life" flows within that environment. Ultimately, the desired goals of your company go hand in hand with the staff you employ as well as the space that they perform their tasks in. Creating work settings which reflect the nature of the task at hand is key in creating the results that you seek. Becoming aware of the communication or privacy needs of the individual job functions is also essential and providing workstations that allow workflow to thrive can improve the performance of your business everyday.

New, at used prices.

Not many dealers can do this. When the average contract furniture dealer becomes truly aware of the market it is in, there are two paths to be taken:

  • Become the same as every dealer, offering the same products, at the same prices or,
  • Dip their savvy and ingenuity into manufacturing, creating solutions and pricing structures that set them apart from the pack. Investing in a product portfolio that allows them to thrive not only with more appealing pricing structures for the market but also with unparalleled service that allows for consistent delivery lead times that are rare and uncommon in the industry.

And yes, new furniture at an equal or slightly higher price than the used products currently offered in the local market.

Innovation and ground breaking performance. That is Office Furniture Warehouse.
