Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), a leader in providing technology-based solutions and services to a global clientele, was having problems of its own: asset management. The company was paying for nationwide warehouse storage of their systems furniture, and they were struggling to manage these existing assets effectively.
To help CSC reduce storage costs and benefit from the value of their surplus furniture, Davies recommended its furniture banking and product exchange programs, which give businesses
with surplus office furniture credit toward purchases of used, refurbished or new office furniture. CSC simply deposited its unused furniture with Davies (eliminating CSC’s storage and inventory
costs) and, in return, received credit to put toward “like-new” product at a premium discount to support reconfiguration and expansion of their offices nationwide.
CSC senior project manager/real estate Mary Jane Kuehn and North American director
of facilities Mike Weaver both agree—the results were outstanding:
And in 2011, Davies signed a five-year National Master Service Agreement making the company CSC’s preferred furniture vendor nationwide.
The results were outstanding. We were able to close six warehouses, saving us $1.5 million per year. We also saw many environmental benefits as a result of redeploying warehoused furniture. We were so pleased that we signed Davies to a five-year National Master Service Agreement making Davies our preferred furniture vendor nationwide.
