Whether you’re setting up a new office, remodeling your old space, or moving to a new location, you’re going to need some office furniture. There are a plethora of choices available to you, there’s no doubt about that. There are high-end, mid-range, budget, used and refurbished options in most areas. One type that you may not have heard of is called systems furniture. But, what exactly is it and why would you want to use it in your space?
What is Systems Furniture?
While it may sound technical, the truth is, the definition of systems furniture is actually quite simple. It simply refers to office furniture that is manufactured to be easily installed and that is configurable in a variety of forms. The term is very often interchanged with modular office furniture. In most cases, it refers to things such as cubicles and workstations that are shared by multiple employees. Now that you know what it is, let’s discuss why you should be using it in your office.
Buying a desk, chair and other office furniture for each one of your employees is expensive, to say the least. However, the costs don’t end with your purchase. You also have to take into consideration the amount of space that you have available. If you have ten employees, and only enough room for five with all that furniture, you are going to need a bigger space to accommodate everything and everyone. Of course, you could decrease your staff if you’re set on staying where you are. However, using systems furniture means you’ll get those same ten employees, or maybe more, in your current space.
Systems furniture keeps employees in close contact with one another on a daily basis. Working together gives your employees the opportunity to share ideas, solve problems and help each other along the way. In addition, projects are more likely to be completed on, or before, the deadline. What’s more, groups are more likely to hold each other to higher standards than they would if working separately. This type of collaborative environment will increase both the individual employee’s and the company’s productivity. Increased productivity naturally leads to increases in revenue.
