There is a reason that businesses upgrade their equipment… they want to make their business more profitable. Regardless of the business you are in, if you have outdated equipment, chances are that equipment is hurting productivity. For small business owners, this can be even more problematic, especially when that equipment is eating up valuable man-hours that can be better utilized. For many businesses, an ultrasonic cleaner can be the difference maker.
I love to use the example of a mechanic for this specific aspect because we all know how dirty and grimy auto parts can get. If you are working on an engine and have to clean the parts, how long does it take? How long are those parts soaking in dangerous chemicals before they can even be cleaned by hand? Add up the costs of soak time, chemicals, and man hours that are used to clean them, then I want you to compare that to what would happen if you were using an ultrasonic cleaner.
First and foremost, we don’t use dangerous chemicals in our cleaning solutions, so that is a major savings in terms of training and removal. Second, generally speaking, you will not have to worry about soak times, and you will also not have an employee tied up cleaning the part by hand. The piece goes into the tank, it runs the cycle while your employee goes back to working on the car, and when the cycle is done, you have an immaculate piece to reinstall in the car.
Here is something else to consider… in this particular business, when you have a car up on the lift, that means you cannot service another car. Point being, the quicker you are able to turn one vehicle, you get to put another on the lift and create a quicker turnover for clients, which means more business for you. It will only be a matter of time before the ultrasonic cleaner has paid for itself.
Consistency is Key
Something else to consider is the consistency of the clean. If you have employees hand cleaning parts, the quality of the clean could depend on their particular mood that day or overall abilities. Employees are human, so the results you will get from each will vary on any given day. Why not take that aspect out of the equation and use a machine that will deliver you the same consistency every time it is used?
Today, there is a big push for businesses to be more environmentally friendly. As we noted above, our cleaners are water-based and do not contain harmful chemicals. For some customers, being able to say that you are using environmentally friendly cleaning procedures could be the difference between them using you and someone else, even if that person is not doing quite as good of a job.
