The Surprising Method You Can Use to Manage Your Business Assets
You already know this, but we’re going to tell you again:
Improving your bottom line requires adequate asset management, so you can ensure that your buildings, fixtures, and equipment experience a long lifespan while losing as little value as possible.
Summer is coming on fast, so today we’ll be talking about how you can protect your merchandise and equipment from the sun while reducing the energy load on your building’s chillers.
Let’s get to it.
Your Asset Protection Options
Most managers think their only method for asset management is remodeling. A remodel project is great… except for its required construction downtime and prohibitively high costs. If possible, companies tend to avoid this expense if they have the option.
Most managers don’t realize that there is another way: Commercial Window Film.
Commercial window film is a low-cost solution that eliminates construction hassles and offers a significantly lower cost than remodeling. In fact, window film can increase the lifespan of your assets by protecting your merchandise and business from both thieves and sun damage. In addition, window film can reduce your lighting and HVAC costs too!
Here are some of the ways your business can increase the longevity of your assets at a fraction of the cost.
- Reduce Fading, Cracking, and Peeling for Your Merchandise
Solar film is a great low-cost solution if your merchandise, equipment, or furniture needs protection from the damaging effects of the sun.
The sun is great, but depending on where you live, it can really do a number on your bottom line. Help curb sun-related depreciation of your assets with solar film that blocks up to 99% of UV rays, which fade your fabric and upholstery, peel your paint, and crack your plastic inventory.
- Protect Your Goods from Wanna-Be Thieves and Taggers
Security and anti-graffiti film help increase your security and keep your windows looking beautiful – all at a fraction of the cost of glazing replacement and repair.
Security film offers your business protection from thieves by strengthening your glass against rocks, baseball bats, and other smash-and-grab tools. Anti-graffiti film protects your storefront from the costs of repairing graffiti and etching by providing a peel-off film that leaves your glass looking as good as new within minutes.
- Harvest Daylight to Lower Your Lighting Costs
Reduce lighting costs the high-tech way with the surprisingly affordable prismatic film that brings beautiful sunlight deeper into your building for longer in the day.
Most building and retail managers have never heard of Daylight Redirecting Film from 3M – and that’s a shame. This innovative solution actually redirects sunlight toward the ceiling as it passes through your windows, which reduces your need for electric, artificial lighting. Studies show that better, more comfortable lighting also significantly increases employee productivity and customer satisfaction, which helps build a fast ROI along with your cost savings for years to come.
- Optimize Your HVAC Costs in Summer and Winter
Keep heating and cooling costs manageable and predictable year-round with film that blocks heat in the summer and cold in the winter.
Thermal films are a fantastic option for businesses or building managers that want to cut down on their ongoing costs of heating and cooling. Whether your buildings have uncomfortable hot spots in the summer or you’re looking to increase your sustainability measures year-round, thermal films can help you keep your operating costs under control.
Help Ensure Your Business’s Future with Smart Asset Management
We think it was Benjamin Franklin who famously said that “A penny saved is a penny earned.” That’s never been truer than it is now. The pace of modern business is moving faster than ever before, and new disruptors hit the market all the time. The best way for you to stay ahead of the curve is to reduce your ongoing asset costs so you can save your money and reinvest it into competitive, business-building strategies.
And one of the smartest ways to do so is to control your costs by properly managing your assets.
Instead of spending your time and money on remodeling, you may find a smarter, more cost-effective solution by investigating the many benefits and options you have available with commercial window film.
