Two tips for managing your commercial property
In today's world, oftentimes the people who are managing commercial properties, are not the owners. Think of a retail setting, there is probably a manger who is in charge of overseeing the operations, including the management of the property. This manager is most likely concerned with the variety of other tasks like promoting sales or managing staff. This means you shouldn't assume that they are handling the property management as well.
Two things you can do to make sure your properties are, make sure you have the best available technology and to have staff trained in correct management.
Technology could include: upgraded security systems, energy efficient lights and heating systems, and upgraded windows and doors for efficiency and security.
Another step would be to develop a plan and inform staff of that plan. This could range from a simple daily checklist, to a full emergency response plan in the event of disaster.
Emergency response plans are great for directing staff on what to do if there is an emergency. Things to include in this plan are contact numbers for contractors to come in and stop any further damage, meet up locations in case the building needs to be evacuated and business continuity plans for what will happen if the building can not be occupied for a period of time.
