Continuing with our quest to help you improve your profits by reducing field labor costs we ask: “How long does it take to build a rack?” The answer is likely 15 minutes.

How about if we asked: “How much does it take to install a ground bus bar on a rack?” You’d probably say five minutes.

What about: “How about a patch panel?” Here, you might respond with five minutes each.

Or, “How long to mount horizontal cable managers?” Again, you’d say five minutes each.

Ok. Great. Let’s do some math:

  • Rack assembly = 15 minutes
  • Ground bar = 5 minutes
  • Patch panels x 3 = 15 minutes
  • Horizontal managers x 2 = 10 minutes

Total time: 45 minutes per rack assembly (at an approximate cost of $55)

What could your technician do in 45 minutes that would add to your bottom line instead of reducing it? Or, how could your technician complete the project faster if they had the time?

Let’s talk about how we can help you make your next project more profitable.
