Facilities managers, meet your new best friend

Tell me if this sounds familiar. You’re a facilities manager. You have a lot of tasks. One of those tasks is to look in on some equipment you don’t quite understand. It could be a system for providing in-house TV, or a digital signage system, or even a rack full of computers. If you work in a small business, you might not have the budget for a full-time person to work those things.

That leaves you, the facilities manager, with a choice. If something breaks, you can hire an expensive outside consultant. Or, you can try to fix it yourself.

So, you look at this rack full of unfamiliar stuff. At first it’s daunting, but very quickly you realize that there’s one thing that doesn’t have any flashing lights. You’re pretty sure it had flashing lights last week. Aha, you say, this is the broken part. You’re probably right that all you need to do is carefully remove it, pop in a new one, and you’re back in business.

Sometimes it really is that easy.

There is a lot of equipment that you really can just swap out like that. There’s an equal amount of equipment that takes configuration to work properly. So how do you know which is which? You need an expert on your side, and the problem is you don’t want to pay them.

So, you rely on “Dr. Google” to make it all better, just like we all do. You get the model name and number and you search for it. Chances are, we carry it at Solid Signal. We have tens of thousands of hard-to-find parts for facilities managers just like you. Most can’t be found anywhere else on the internet.

We work with suppliers all over the world to find the commercial equipment that no one sells online. We’ve been doing it for 20 years. We’ve helped millions of people, many of them facilities managers like you. And we’re here for you, too.
