When you’re running a business, there’s no shortage of things to manage: time, employees, productivity, budgets… but have you ever thought of cables? Just about every business depends on cables for essentials like data and electricity. Cable management is the perfect solution for keeping those cords safe, functional, and organized! So whether you oversee an office, data center, production studio, or retail space, read on to find out how cable management can benefit your business!
1. SAFETY FIRST
When you own or operate a business, it’s up to you to keep the premises up to code and safe for employees and customers. Prevent cable-related liabilities like tripping hazards, by using floor cord covers to anchor foot-snagging cables to the floor. Cord covers offer you twofold protection: they prevent tripping accidents around the workplace, plus keep valuable cables from being crushed underfoot by pedestrian traffic.
2. CUT DOWN ON WASTED TIME AND FRUSTRATION
At one time or another, we’ve all wanted to pull our hair out in frustration while trying to untangle and differentiate between computer cords. Likewise, when it comes time to replace or perform routine maintenance on network equipment, the last thing you’ll want to be faced with is digging through a web of identical cables to find the one you need! Products like wire markers and label printers take the guesswork away by neatly identifying each cord. It saves you precious time (and sanity) for more worthwhile tasks!
3. SAVE MONEY
Cable management not only provides you with a cleaner and more organized business space, it can also extend the life and maximize the performance of your cables! Cords that are allowed to pile up on the floor or hang slack behind equipment, are likely to suffer damage from crushing or sagging. By introducing a cable management system like the Neat-Patch® into your workplace, you can ensure you won’t need to repeatedly spend money on replacement network cables.
4. KEEP YOUR WORK ENVIRONMENT CLEANER
Nothing hangs onto dust like piles of tangled cables: just take a look under your desk! Chances are those dust balls aren’t enhancing your business… but they’re probably making you sneeze! Tackling excess cord length with a product like the Cable-Safe™ Complete Cable Manager, which lifts wires and peripheral devices off the floor, makes it easier for you to clean, and helps to prevent dirt from collecting in the first place. You can choose curated kits from CableOrganizer® too, including desk management and office kits that feature the products you need to keep desk and office cables in order, while benefitting from a cost savings by purchasing the products together.
5. LOOK BETTER TO YOUR CLIENTS
Always remember that first impressions count extra in business! Even if you’re great at what you do, a cluttered and disorganized workspace can give potential business partners the wrong idea. Let’s face it: an office full of messy cables just makes you look bad, so if you’re likely to receive drop-in visits from customers or prospective clients, invest in a cable management solution like surface raceway, to put your best foot forward.
