Bringing Value to Your Workplace

No matter your business, it’s important to recognize the economic pressures your company can face, and do everything you can to safeguard against them. For example, with the downturn in the oil and gas industry, you need a committed, smart business partner that will help you with cost containment, management controls, and accountability, while still providing superior customer service.

At Craft, we believe a business partner should never compromise on customer service, no matter the economic climate, and it is our pledge to you that we never will. Our focus is providing outstanding service to meet your needs, while giving you the tools to save time and money. I think the best example of this is our My Craftworks™ program, which offers business tools to weather any economic pressure. Here are just a few of the outstanding services provided:

Sub n’ Save

Why spend money on brand names when you can sometimes get virtually the same product for less? We’ll help you find value brands or brand alternatives to the products you most commonly order, saving you money where you need it most. We create customizable Sub n’ Save lists for your company so when you add an item to your cart, we’ll suggest a different product that costs less. You then decide if the suggested product meets your needs. Simple as that!

– Order Approval: Managers can review shopping carts before the orders are submitted. You can set up different approval rules for different managers, or even set parameters for order review, such as any order over $150.

– Company Lists: These lists identify the most used supplies and highlight company preferences. They can also highlight generic alternatives and save time when placing orders.

Business Reviews and Spend Analysis

Sit Better With BodyBilt

We pride ourselves on bringing Positive Energy to your workplace, and one way we do that is by offering the best products and brands. We’re always on the lookout for office solutions that can meet our customers’ unique needs. I think this is perfectly exemplified in our partnership with BodyBilt Workplace Solutions, a Texas-based manufacturer of ergonomic seating. BodyBilt seating options are highly adjustable—each chair has a minimum of 10 ergonomic adjustments—which allows you to customize your seat to your body. For many office workers, this has helped with back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as general posture and comfort.

BodyBilt seating helps protect your most valuable asset—your employees. Employee injuries cost you both time and money, and since many office employees sit upwards of 8 hours a day, even a small modification in ergonomics can have a big impact. Bodybilt is a recognized leader in ergonomic seating solutions, and has made it their business to deliver a better seating experience.

Check out some of the seating options BodyBilt has to offer:

CaptureBodyBilt Sola

Offers the breathability of a mesh back, along with the comfort and control of the BodyBilt seat pan. The moderately contoured seat stimulates proper ergonomic posture.

 

Capture1BodyBilt Mid-Back Task

Designed specifically for desktop intensive job performers, the Mid-Back Task features a pressure-reducing seat, along with 10 ergonomic adjustments that allow users to control their own comfort level. It’s the perfect balance between ease and usefulness.

 

Capture2BodyBilt XL

Featuring a larger seat pan and chair arms that are wider and higher than the average chair, the BodyBilt XL is designed for individuals of a larger stature. It can support up to 500 pounds.

 

Capture3BodyBilt Intensive Use

A high-back chair that has a contoured seat designed to support ergonomic posture and distribute body weight, putting leg muscles in a relaxed position. It provides exceptional lower-back support for desktop tasks.

In addition to seating, BodyBilt also offers a host of other products to improve office ergonomics, including keyboard trays, height adjustable tables, and document holders.

Contact Craft today for more information on BodyBilt seating solutions. We know you’ll love the effect they have on employee well-being.

2 Reasons Inventory Management is Critical to Your Business

Factory Worker Using Digital Tablet In Store RoomThere is nothing more frustrating than running out of toner when you are in the middle of a print job with a looming deadline. Or how about when you get to the office, brew your cup of coffee, and realize there’s no creamer or sugar? Mismanaged inventory can create a variety of problems in your office. Here’s the 2 main reasons we think inventory management is critical to the success of your business.

Increases employee efficiency. Companies pay their employees to get specific tasks completed in a timely fashion. If staff is digging through office supply drawers or searching through files to find what they need, their valuable time is being wasted. With My CraftWorks™, we optimize inventory levels for storage and organization so your supplies are easy to find, and you never run out.

Decreases overstocking costs. If inventory is not monitored correctly, it’s very easy to order supplies you already have because they simply can’t be found at the moment. Or a vendor only wants to deliver once a month, so they stockpile your inventory levels. That’s how you end up with 15 boxes of envelopes in the back of the office supply closet. With My CraftWorks™, we can help keep your supply closet, printer station, and break room stocked with the right products and with optimal levels. Depending on your need, we can design order forms or stock sheets with suggested par levels and/or create automated scheduled orders via our web store to facilitate ordering those day-in-day-out items

Let us lighten your load. We are the experts at office organization and inventory management. This means saving you time, money, and energy – allowing you to focus on more mission-critical activities. Contact us today to learn more about our free inventory management solutions.

3 New Year’s Resolutions for the Office

The beginning of a new year inspires hope within all of us. It’s the time when we all crave positive change and make resolutions in our personal life to eat healthier, sleep longer, or spend more quality time with our family. At Craft, we want our customers to prosper in all areas of their lives, but this year we challenge you to make and keep at least one office resolution.

Take a little time to decide what goal you want to tackle at the office, write it down, and stick to it. Not sure what resolutions will make the most impact? Here’s Hank’s list of 3 New Year’s resolutions for the office.

iStock_000046492376_Small

Resolution 1: Speak up when you have an idea! This is your year to shine. You may have a brilliant idea that you are too scared to announce, for fear of rejection. Instead, build up your confidence by speaking with a few colleagues about your idea first. Then at your next meeting, when the time is appropriate, let everyone know your ideas. Whether they like it or not, you put yourself out there. That’s a great accomplishment!

Gossip in the office

Resolution 2: Ditch the office gossip. It’s difficult not to get pulled into workplace drama, but gossip is simply unproductive and spreads negativity like a wild fire. The next time a colleague tries to gossip with you, offer a one-word response, like “wow,” and follow it with, “I’ve got to go. See you later.” You’ll be amazed at how good it feels to stay out of that negative space.Lunch at the office

Resolution 3: Have lunch with someone in another department. This year try not to isolate yourself in your singular department. We know it’s your comfort zone, but as the quote says, “Life begins, outside your comfort zone.” You could meet a great partner for a future project or make a coffee break pal in the process.

We hope that one of these New Years resolutions finds its way into your year. To help you stick to your resolution, here is a FREE printable template. Simply print, write out your resolution, and have a daily reminder of your goals. Don’t forget to tell us on Facebook what your office resolution is and follow our page for more office tips.

Are You Meeting First Aid Requirements?

When a health emergency happens, first aid kits are the only resource available before an ambulance arrives or the employee gets to the hospital. Without the necessary health and safety supplies, businesses puts their employees at risk and also violate ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standards.

OSHA requires all businesses, without an onsite infirmary, to have access to approved first aid kits within a 3 minute walk. That means, some businesses may need more than one first aid kit at their location. Craft offers a variety of first aid kit solutions that will equip you with everything you need. Here are a few of the first aid kits we recommend.

To make first aid stocking even easier, we are now providing Smart Compliance Cabinet Kits with patented snap-in boxes.  These kits save you over 50%, compared to the delivery companies like Cintas and Zee Medical. Each kit dispenses supplies one at a time to control excess usage and once you run out, restocking is simple with our refill packs. These kits come in a variety of sizes for small to large businesses.

2016 Catalogs are Here!

2015CatalogEBThe new year is the perfect time to discover new products and rekindle your love for the old. Grab yourself a nice hot cup of coffee, kick your feet up, and get ready to browse Craft’s 2016 catalog. To make your browsing experience enjoyable, here are a few suggestions to find your way around.

  • The first pages of your catalog have a table of symbols. These will help to identify items that are new, recycled, value packs, assembly required, and more.
  • Product category pages are color coded at the top.
  • Use the index, in the back of the catalog, to search for an item by manufacturer or product type.

Once you have had a chance to peruse our newest catalog, make sure you dispose of last year’s catalog too. We know, sometimes it feels good to hold on to catalogs, for fear of losing a note or a product you marked. But if you don’t take action now, you may end up with a stack of expired catalogs that reach to the ceiling! We promise the benefits of recycling your catalog far outweigh the negatives. See below:

  • You’ll have access to the newest products!  The previous year’s catalog will have discontinued products.
  • When you call and ask for help, you will be on the “same page” as our Customer Service team.
  • You are helping the environment by letting us recycle old catalogs as part of our My FootPrint™ program.

Want to see new products added throughout the year beyond your catalog?  Want to see the latest product information, popular products, and promotions?  Call Craft for an online account to our web store, and have access to the latest and greatest information and web tools.
