About ABOUT YOU
High number of employees - high volume
- Little space in the office: With the steadily growing number of employees, the Hamburg headquarters of ABOUT YOU became too cramped. The meeting rooms were also usually occupied and not infrequently overcrowded, as people moved from the full open-plan office to meeting rooms. Therefore, a space-saving solution was needed for employees to work in a concentrated and focussed manner in the office, but also to enable meetings to take place at the same time.
- Effective volume reduction: As the number of employees increases, so does the background noise. Since a large part of the employees work in support, the room acoustics had to be improved, not only in order to be able to work in a focused manner, but also to ensure the quality of customer conversations. Suitable acoustic solutions were needed to reduce the volume and improve the acoustics.
- Modern design: As a fashion company, the work areas are also modern and stylish. The office furniture also had to meet this requirement and fit in with the existing design.
- Low costs: The company is in sustained growth. The available capital is needed primarily to support growth. In order to burden the cash flow as little as possible, other forms of financing were sought that do not require high one-time payments.
- Flexible solution: It must also be possible to flexibly book additional acoustic solutions in the future, as requirements may change due to rapid growth and additional products may be needed.
Trade 1m2 of space for peace & concentration
Telephone & meeting boxes as a space-saving solution
In the search for a suitable solution, ABOUT YOU came across the Lilly telephone box for one person and Laura with space for two from Lendis. With them, two problems could be solved at once. As a place of retreat, they offer the possibility to work in a focused manner. They also function as an additional meeting option. With a size of 1m2 or 2m2, the cubicles are extremely space-saving. At the same time, they offer a high level of comfort, which means that even longer telephone calls can be conducted without any problems. A big plus: the modern design of the telephone boxes fits easily into any office.
The right financing model
Planning & Delivery
After clarifying the requirements in an initial personal meeting, our experts were quickly able to demonstrate the advantages of the Office as a Service solution.
With the help of a 3D model, which was created on the basis of the office floor plan, the planning began. This visualisation helps our clients to better imagine the future office and to formulate adaptation wishes. Together with ABOUT YOU, we were able to complete the planning phase quickly.
Another advantage: Lendis regularly has a large part of its products in stock. This meant that the high demand for telephone boxes could also be covered quickly. Together with the delivery, our logistics and assembly team took care of the professional and quick assembly of all telephone boxes on site. Thus, the employees were able to use the new equipment immediately.
The flexible solution
Calm & concentration - even in an open-plan office
For over a year now, ABOUT YOU has been using the Lendis phone boxes and they have been gratefully accepted by the staff. The boxes are now fully integrated into the office routine and offer a welcome alternative to the overcrowded meeting rooms or the fashion company's noisy open-plan office.
Since the telephone boxes were very well received by the employees, ABOUT YOU decided to also rely on the telephone boxes from Lendis for the expansion of the Hamburg office.
But not only the colleagues were satisfied with the solution found. The partnership with Lendis also paid off financially. By renting from Lendis, ABOUT YOU was able to save over 47,000 € compared to the usual purchase. This calculation includes the following services:
Lendis offers an all-in-one service, which ABOUT YOU particularly appreciates. This includes a dedicated contact person who solves any problems that arise within the shortest possible time, as well as the repair of minor defects or the exchange of faulty products. With the Lendis platform, ABOUT YOU can also easily record and manage inventory.
The fast processing convinced ABOUT YOU. From the first personal contact to the delivery of the phone boxes, less than 8 weeks passed.
Lendis & ABOUT YOU take responsibility for our planet and our environment. The Lendis rental model offers a sustainable alternative to the usual purchase, because products have a longer life cycle through multiple use. In addition, Lendis compensates for all emissions that arise. As a result, the ABOUT YOU order saved over 2,400 kg of CO2 emissions could be saved in comparison to the purchase.
But the most important question is, what does ABOUT YOU say about the collaboration with Lendis?
