Are you about to buy office furniture in CBD? Well, then this guide is meant for you.
Over the years, while serving business of all forms and sizes, we have observed that managers end up facing the same type of challenges. We help them on every step, when they are planning to buy office furniture. That said, all of this is done once the process has already started. Hence, we have created this guide to help managers who are about to get started with the planning phase of buying office furniture.
Here is the most comprehensive guide you will need when buying office furniture.
1. Start with extensive planning.
Since this is a big cost for the business, you as a manager will definitely put a lot of thought into it. That said, you have to understand the needs of the business and this comes only by planning properly for buying the furniture.
To begin with, find all the problems your teammates and employees are facing with the current set of furniture. If you are setting up a new business entirely, you can simply draw conclusions from your personal experiences for understanding the common problems people have with their office furniture. This will give you a broad understanding of the more intricate requirements of your teammates and employees.
Once you have done this, sit with your human resources manager and your finance team. The key information they will provide will deal with the expansion plans of the business. If you are starting a new business, you must have your own business plans to refer to.
Hence, focus on two key areas:
a. The exact functionalities you will need from your office furniture.
b. The occupant capacity your office furniture should be able to take care of, over the next five years.
2. Simplify your own decision making process.
Once you are done with the above mentioned step, you will know what you need. Now is the time for deciding how you will get it.
When it comes to the decision to buy office chairs or to buy office desks, it is easier to buy individual pieces than to plan for entire office. This is a space where we can help you. Whether you are looking for interior designing services or for office space planning expertise, we will provide you both of these for no extra costs. This is how you can simplify your own decision making process.
3. Focus on quality over everything else.
Would you be willing to buy reception counters for your office that start tapering off in a year or two? Obviously not. Your office furniture plays a tacit but important role in the work culture of the organization and the professional image you are able to form in the eyes of all external clients of your company. Thus, the key variable you should be focusing on is quality above everything else.
Quality office furniture will pay for itself and provide excess value by saving the repair costs over the years and increasing productivity levels.
4. Map out the entire process – planning, designing, ordering, delivery and installation.
When you start visualizing the process, it becomes incredibly easy to manage it. This will help you in understanding where do you stand in the process and how you should proceed to the next level. Once we are on-board with you, we will help you at every level of the process.
