In an effort to maximize your company’s potential, you need to make sure you have the right equipment to help your employees and leaders perform at their best. The Wright Group offers premium audiovisual equipment for rent for a variety of business purposes, such as employee training and presentation. Audiovisual equipment refers to items that possess both a sound and visual component, such as microphones, speakers, and much more. Even hydraulic stages and portable stages are needed when it comes to audiovisual equipment. Below, we’d like to offer five reasons for why renting audiovisual equipment can be such a boon to your organization.
1. Save Money
The biggest reason for renting audiovisual equipment is to save money. Depending on the size and financial capabilities of your company, you may not be in a position to outright buy your very own equipment. Besides not having to foot the bill for a vast variety of AV equipment pieces such as large displays and sound systems, you also save money on things like:
• Value depreciation
• Long-term maintenance
• Storage (if you don’t have room on-site)
The money you save by renting can be funneled back into your company for growth, advertising, employee salaries, and emergency funds. You’re sure to prefer this to the regret that can sometimes come from buying equipment you don’t use as much as you originally thought you would.
2. A Better Way to Onboard New Employees
When it comes to hiring the right people, it’s essential that they have a solid idea of what kind of company they’re working for and what’s expected of them as an employee. That said, some people are visual learners, and that’s more important to realize as people have become accustomed to interacting with screens every day. By renting audiovisual equipment, you make it easier for new employees to jump right into their roles and understand their position. This is better than employees struggling for the first few weeks while they adjust, which can cost you in productivity and lead to unnecessary complications later on, maybe even team members quitting. Head misunderstandings and confusion off at the pass with the help of the right equipment.
3. Rented Equipment Is Often Better Maintained
Another great thing about renting your audiovisual equipment is that you can rest assured that it’s been well-maintained. Just like your car or your HVAC system, regular maintenance is key to better ensure optimum performance. Poorly maintained equipment is likely to malfunction, which is sure to lead to frustration and an unnecessary loss of time.
Something else to think about with maintenance is that equipment often lasts longer when it’s well-cared for. During the course of running your business, you may forget to have your equipment serviced. Either that, or there could be times when you have to prioritize costs, which can leave you open to equipment failure. Renting equipment is sure to bring you better peace of mind and confidence.
4. Give Demonstrations of Services & Products
Touching back on onboarding employees, having audiovisual equipment also means that you can give demonstrations of whatever products or services your company offers. Thoroughly understanding just what your company offers is key to allowing employees to better take care of your customers. Even if certain members of your workforce don’t work in sales, making sure they know your company’s products and services allows them to answer any questions they receive about your services or products. This is likely to make for happier customers as well, since they’re sure to feel like they’re talking to a knowledgeable representative, and customer interactions are more inclined to be faster and more satisfying as well since employees may not have to transfer a call or ask a manager a question they should have the answer to.
5. Video Conferencing Capabilities
If your company has several branches or ever has to have a conference call, the right equipment will allow you to have video conferences instead. Not only are people used to interacting with screens on a daily basis, but they’re also used to a visual component to those screen interactions that extends beyond words. By hosting and participating in video conferences, you add another layer of participation and engagement with business interactions. Just make sure you consider lighting rentals so everyone looks their best during conferences.
Besides being visually engaging, video conferencing can go a long way in saving time, money, and productivity. No longer do employees have to travel to meet up with clients or other team members, which eliminates the need to pay for transportation. While video conferencing may not be the answer to every business interaction, it can most certainly go a long way in bringing people together and making them feel as if they’re all in the same room even though they may be hundreds or thousands of miles away.
