RLE Brings Expertise to IFMA World Workplace 2014
Look Out IFMA, Here We Come
We’ve packed the pallet and shipped the booth – all that’s left is getting ourselves to the airport on time. That’s right, team RLE is hitting the road and heading to New Orleans for IFMA’s World Workplace 2014 Facility Conference and Expo!
Valuable Knowledge, Straight From Us To You
We’ve attended and displayed product at IFMA World Workplace events in the past, but this year we’re very excited to take our involvement to an all new level.
As a nod to his wealth of knowledge in this marketplace, our Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Jeremy Swanner, has been selected to present two powerful, informative educational sessions:
- Pay Me Now or Pay Me a Lot More Later: How To Get the Budget You Need to Prevent Catastrophes, Not Clean Them Up
Thursday, September 18, 2014, 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. | Venue: MCCNO, Room 284/285 | Session 1.04
What’s the cost of one hour of downtime at your facility resulting from an environmental issue? Most managers would put it in terms of lost productivity; but in reality, there may be equipment damage, loss of data either electronically or in hard copy form, building infrastructure damage, etc. What about the harder-to-quantify costs:
1. Decreased customer loyalty; 2. Damage to your company’s reputation; 3. Employee moral issues; 4. Ammunition for your competitors; and 5. Clean up?
All of these factors can be leveraged in making a case for staffing and budget designated for disaster risk mitigation. Acquire five cases you can make during your budgeting process that will help you get the funding you need to fully protect both your company’s and your own reputation. Receive exclusive access to an online Cost-of-doing-nothing calculator that will help you determine the actual impact on your company in the case of an environmental catastrophe in your facility.
Friday, September 19, 2014, 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. | Venue: MCCNO, Room 297 | Session 7.12
Most facility managers today recognize the risk associated with environmental disasters within their facility; however, for many facilities, retrofitting environmental monitoring equipment is a daunting task at best. At the top of that list of issues is the need to physically wire a system, which can cause business disruption, have a massive impact on productivity and be extremely costly.
Learn how the acceptance of wireless monitoring has gone from mistrust and concern to full-out adoption in critical facilities. Address concerns such as: 1. Wireless signal options (such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, communication protocol, etc.); 2. Signal interference; 3. Powering a monitoring system without the labor of swapping batteries frequently; 4. Cost effectiveness; 5. Communication compatibility; 6. Simplicity of configuration; and 7. Security assurance. Gain a full understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of a wireless monitoring system and be fully prepared to evaluate which type of monitoring solution is best for your facility.
Interactive Displays; Time To Explore Our Solutions
This year we’ll also be hosting our own booth space. Stop by BOOTH 924 to get hands on experience with our equipment. We’ll have our sales staff on hand to answer all your questions, and you can take all the time you need to learn about our monitoring and leak detection products. Don’t believe our leak detection cable can possibly alarm as fast as it does in our video? Well, skeptic, stop on by the booth and generate that alarm yourself. The response time will knock your socks off.
We’ll all be in New Orleans, and we’d love to talk. If you’d like to secure some time for a one-on-one conversation with our sales staff, just let us know.
See You There!
