The Importance of Scalable Workspace Solutions

“Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together,” said James Cash Penney, founder of JCPenney stores. And how do you grow a business? Well, you scale its operations. There’s no time to waste if you see the opportunity to improve your organization’s capacity and efficiency. In this blog, we detail why scalable solutions are important for growing businesses and how to simplify your plan to scale workspace solutions.

What is a “scalable solution”?

At the basic level, “scalable” means to change in size or scale. It’s true that scalability is important for business growth, but “scaling” and “growing” aren’t synonymous. According to Harvard Business Review, “growth means adding revenue at the same pace you are adding resources; scaling means adding revenue at a much greater rate than cost."

Scaling should manage your business growth. It’s about adapting your organization prior to growth. Scaling your business might look like hiring more staff to better meet demand or investing in new technology to help automate more of your daily work. Scalable workspace solutions often refer to additional infrastructure to help your company more adequately meet demand.

Why is scalability important for changing and unpredictable businesses?

Scaling a company presents numerous challenges. You need to determine new facility requirements, execute on your facility choices at the right time, and spend enough money to set your company up for success, all to better meet the demand you’ve predicted. There’s a lot of uncertainty, and yet if you want to grow your organization exponentially, you must scale anyway.

Companies often look to scale workspace by supporting a remote workforce or expanding its current facility. A lack of adequate space could hold a company back from meeting demand.

If your team needs to expand, there’s a high likelihood that a remote workforce can significantly contribute to that growth. It might make sense to stay in your current facility with some quick-hit solutions to help you adapt to a slightly higher on-site headcount. Modular shipping container-based structures will help you quickly adapt your facility to rapidly changing requirements. You can avoid the lengthy delays associated with hiring an architect, finding a general contractor, then going through the permitting process by adding incremental facility capacity with modular structures. Solve the problem in weeks instead of months. Put the people close to the work.

“It’s amazing how some companies can generate so much revenue with a relatively small staff. It’s all thanks to an intentional approach to scaling that helps them meet more demand. Sometimes all it takes to make a difference is a few container offices placed at exactly the right location.” John McAlonan, Falcon Structures COO
