As event rental pros in the boutique market, you’re always trying to balance beauty and efficiency (read: profitability). If your warehouse is jaw-dropping but also takes a million years for your crew to navigate, you may impress your potential clients but be frustrated on loading day.
We’ve found that using a system like 5S (originally developed by Hiroyuki Hurano for Japanese manufacturing companies) can help event rental businesses create— and maintain— the warehouse of their dreams.
When your warehouse is well-organized, kept clean, designed to save your team time, and keeps everyone on the same page (even if they aren’t familiar with your collection), you’ve got a win-win.
If you’re interested in implementing this system in your own warehouse, check out our free guide here.
