Our company has received its third quarter earnings report that have shown a large drain on our profit margin centered on facilities cost required for all staff. Our office has 52 office spaces for sales representative of which 41 are for traveling sales staff. We maintain a large sales staff that spend approximately 65-75% of their time on the road producing sales that account for 58% of the overall sales in the company. Recognizing the large portion of profit generated for sales staff the company determined providing office space for their time in residence would maintain their productivity and support the profit generating leg of the company.
The facilities cost includes this 21% dead space incurred by maintaining office space with a low occupancy rate. We have determined that by downsizing 20 offices we will eliminate two floors of rental space and shrink our operational budgets that will allow increase in profits and better price points on our products. By realizing these cost savings, we can reinvest in product improvement, training and marketing; maintaining a competitive edge over our market.
The recommended solution to meet the needs of our traveling staff and minimize our facilities cost is to incorporate a hoteling or shared office solution. Each sales representative can reserve space for the days and times that they will be in the office; therefore, maximizing space while not affecting productivity. Employing smart spacing and storage solutions will enable the quick turnover and exchange of space that will enable more space to create greater common area for maintaining community connectivity.
