After recently expanding their operation, a builder in Connecticut had contacted me with the goal of getting their inventory organized and creating a system that would be easier for their employees to maintain. Once I had assessed the client’s needs and talked through their current process, as well as their dream process, we began to put together a plan that made sense for their company.
In phase one, we claimed an unused space filled with the client’s old office furniture that would be converted into a warehouse for them to keep smaller items. Through using magnetic labels we were able to achieve a system that could be easily modified depending on the quantities ordered for each job.
In phase two, we sorted through the items in the garage to organize them in our newly created warehouse while purging all broken items and donating all unused items. We then setup the garage area to easily store larger pieces of furniture and fixtures, as well as the miscellaneous tools they needed to store.
Today, their storage facility is continuing to function well and we have begun work on a new project to organize their design center and sales office.
