CASE STUDY: HOME OFFICE

THE CHALLENGE:


To bring order to a chaotic office and storage space.


THE PROBLEM:


This very busy salesman spends only part of his time working in his actual office; the rest is spent travelling.  He receives daily packages containing merchandise, which pile up until he has time to open and address them.


Prior to our arrival, there was no system for managing his business and personal paperflow, which often became mixed together. The client was constantly overwhelmed trying to locate papers and materials he needed. Bills were sometimes misplaced and paid late as a result of all the clutter.


BEFORE…

THE SOLUTION:


We helped the client separate his business from his personal papers, and designated specific areas on his desk for each. We set up a system where he could immediately eliminate unnecessary paper/junk mail, and then sort the remainder by action and level of urgency (to file, to read, needs immediate attention, etc). His filing system was revamped and updated.


We reorganized his sales materials, making it much easier for him to find what he’s looking for quickly. We also set up a holding area for incoming and outgoing packages – one specific place for these items to be stored until they can be dealt with.


THE RESULT:


An uncluttered workspace that is aesthetically pleasing, where business and personal tasks can be managed quickly and efficiently according to the client’s time schedule.
