18 Jan Clarus Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Study Proves Superior Value
The commercial writing surfaces market has been plagued by ‘cheap’ whiteboards and wall paint for decades. As low-cost solutions, these disposable products are immediately a low-performing eyesore. But it’s not just the performance – and aesthetics – that make traditional whiteboards a poor decision. A recent third party survey of Facility Mangers who purchase writing solutions for the spaces they manage, illustrates that the ‘Total Cost of Ownership’ (TCO) of traditional solutions is cost prohibitive and Clarus Glassboards are much lower cost overall. While a majority of whiteboards are permanently damaged or stained in four years or less, Clarus Glassboards never require replacement. After just 4-6 years, as whiteboards head for the trash bin, Clarus Glassboards become much more cost effective, saving facilities money year, after year, after year.
The study covered important topics such as average expenses for just one whiteboard over a 10 year period, reasons for replacement and more.
And most importantly, the Facility Managers, who work within the Fortune 500, higher learning and businesses big, small, public and private finally prove what Clarus Glassboards customers have known all along – cheaper whiteboards cost more.
