The True Cost of Equipment Repairs
One thing all business owners and managers know is that downtime of any equipment, especially back-room waste and recycling equipment, is costly. Not only can baler and compactor service be expensive, but the loss in revenue from delayed recycling and in the slowing down of daily operations can negatively affect your bottom line. These problems become exponential when your business has operations in more than one site or geographic region.
Equally frustrating at times, is the amount of personal effort it takes to place multiple phone calls to a service company or follow up with other stores and employees in your own business to ensure that their repairs are being handled in the most efficient manner possible. Recording and keeping track of these repairs while they happen, and especially over the time of the life of the machine can be an arduous task. The cost of employee time in dealing with these issues can be significant.
