Why Businesses Are Adopting Dawson’s Smarter Asset Strategy
Dawsongroup is a company that society needs and wants to exist. Much more than a hire firm, it is a supply chain partner to every industry, helping businesses and local authorities operate more efficiently.
When the pandemic first struck three years ago, businesses reacted by returning all their hired assets, thinking that they wouldn’t be needed in a world where everything had ground to a halt. However, within twelve weeks, they realised that they needed Dawsongroup to be able to adapt to the changing world around us – and its own utilisation hit record levels as business and society recognised that flexibility was the very thing necessary to be efficient during these challenging times.
Much has changed over the last few years and, whilst the pandemic has eased off, it has left behind a world where flexibility and adaptability are the most vital traits a business can have to not just survive, but to thrive. The future is even more of an unknown entity than before, and businesses need to be more agile than ever to take account of that. Owning all your assets is the last thing you want to do in such a changeable environment.
“There’s a misconception that purchasing assets in business is a form of security, as it is in our personal lives, when in reality it’s a liability,” said Steve Callahan, Dawsongroup Sales and Marketing Director. “A traditional approach leads businesses to believe they must own everything, which in turn means they pay for more than the part they need. All too often, businesses set out a plan without a true strategy for their assets and invest in ownership over usership, rather than the more agile usership over ownership approach. In business, if you use it, you shouldn’t own it, and if you own it, you shouldn’t use it. Although Dawsongroup owns assets, we don’t use them ourselves, instead repurposing them when they would otherwise be laying idle, finding alternative uses and customers for them throughout their life.”
Dawsongroup’s Smarter Asset Strategy provides consultative solutions which ensure you have the agility you need to futureproof your business.
