Set­ting up your home of­fice for ef­fi­ciency

Cecil Whig - - REAL ESTATE -

— So, you’ve been run­ning your busi­ness from your home for some time now, and with the busy hol­i­day sea­son upon us, you find your­self over whelmed, stressed and your of­fice is a mess. When run­ning a busi­ness, there are so many things you need to think about to max­i­mize ef­fi­ciency, from hav­ing a clean setup to en­sur­ing that you are well equipped with the sup­plies you need to get things done.

First things first. To help in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity and get things started, it’s time to tidy up your space. Start by go­ing through any old files you may have and de­ter­min­ing whether you re­ally need them, then get rid of things that no longer are rel­e­vant. Next, start or­ga­niz­ing and get­ting your lay­out set. Ar­range your space in a way that is func­tional and will en­sure that you are able to ac­cess the things you need eas­ily, like your phone and com­puter.

Once your of­fice is cleaned up, it’s time to take a step back and en­sure that your of­fice is equipped with the lat­est equip­ment and stocked up on sup­plies. Your tech­nol­ogy and hard­ware are key com­po­nents to run­ning things ef­fi­ciently, so mak­ing sure your com­puter and pe­riph­er­als are up to date will be cru­cial. A printer is a crit­i­cal com­po­nent in your home of­fice setup and it’s


im­por­tant that it is com­pat­i­ble with the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and that there is enough ink to ful­fill your busi­ness needs.

When it comes to smoothly run­ning your busi­ness, there are many things you need to help max­i­mize pro­duc­tiv­ity, and replenishing of­fice sup­plies should not be a worry. As it is, the hol­i­days are a stress­ful time, and buy­ing of­fice sup­plies is an added stress you don’t need on your list. Say you need to print an im­por­tant doc­u­ment for a meet­ing and you’re alerted that you are low on ink, but you are com­pletely out, and you don’t have time to get to the store to re­place it. Ac­cord­ing to a new in­de­pen­dent study from YouGov, 57 per­cent of Amer­i­cans find that it’s a pain to buy new car­tridges for a printer. That is where a re­plen­ish­ment ser­vice comes in.

Hav­ing your items right to your doorstep de­liv­ered will help al­le­vi­ate the time it would take to do this on your own and elim­i­nate the guess­work in know­ing when you need to stock up on sup­plies. In fact, over one-third of Amer­i­cans think that ink and toner re­plen­ish­ment is a good idea. All you need to do is en­roll in the ser­vice and you are guar­an­teed to get your items right when you need them. You don’t even have to know what model your printer is and what kind of car­tridge it takes. Ser­vices like Ama­zon Dash, Brother Re­fresh and Best Buy Easy Re­plen­ish al­low cus­tomers to quickly and eas­ily re­place their ink and toner with­out hav­ing to think about it.

“Run­ning out of ink is al­ways frus­trat­ing but it’s es­pe­cially in­fu­ri­at­ing when it hap­pens at an in­con­ve­nient time, like when you are in a rush to get a print out,” said Rafi Haqqani, mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor for Brother Gen­uine Sup­plies and Auto-Ful­fill­ment at Brother. “Through our Re­fresh ser­vice, we are help­ing of­fice users run their busi­ness more ef­fi­ciently by re­mov­ing the bot­tle­necks and stress that comes with run­ning out of ink and toner.”

Don’t let the busy hol­i­day sea­son bog you down. Get your of­fice set up right and your sup­plies and equip­ment in or­der so you can get your work done ef­fi­ciently and en­joy your time with the fam­ily.
