How to Prepare for a Successful Trade ShowThe tips to lead your business to success at any trade show

Preparing for a trade show can be very scary. However, there are some tips to help businesses achieve success in this task.

1. Awareness. The more you know about the trade show, the better. Feel free to contact the organizers of the event and get the necessary details on the type of prospective visitors, the layout of the area, the display equipment, etc.

2. Goals setting. One of the primary tasks before the trade show is to put in place some realistic goals for your business and work out a plan in this regard. Discuss this with the team to act together and more effectively.

3. Self-presentation and promotion. Be scrupulous when choosing and organizing self-presentation measures. Make a stand-alone presentation board and be sure your company name and logo are bright and conspicuous. Be creative. Create a video or slideshow presentation and use TV monitors to display it. It is a great opportunity to draw more attention. Trade show giveaways and gift certificates always work great. Pay special attention to it.

4. Lead interaction and generation. You need to focus on building a long-lasting relationship with potential leads and prevent them from quickly forgetting about you. Be ready to follow-up with them as soon as possible. You need a lead collection, interaction, and generation system to be organized in this task. Mobile apps are the best tool for it.

Disinfection: the Highlights and the Way to Control

Disinfection: the Highlights and the Way to ControlCompliance is the foundation of well-being

A lot of people are still finding discomfort and even panic during the Coronavirus outbreak. However, we gradually learn to live with these difficulties and take better care of ourselves. The Centers for Disease Control provide the recommendation and people try to follow them in order to maintain the possibility of their usual life and work without lockdowns. An important component of these measures is regular cleaning and disinfection of various surfaces on the premises.

What we should know about disinfection

When it comes to cleaning and disinfection, the first thing we should know is that these are two very different things. Cleaning is about removing contaminants, germs, and pathogens and disinfection is about killing them. Let’s focus on the disinfection process.

Disinfection should follow after cleaning. Here are some high-touch surfaces that should be disinfected regularly:

– doorknobs,

– toilets and bathrooms,

– light switches,

– remote controls,

– countertops and chairs.

The EPA has a full list of disinfectants that you can use. Some are used alone or in combinations. Most disinfectants should have a label that lists the viruses they’re effective against. It is important to follow the recommended concentrations and precautionary measures. It is better to resort to the help of specialized services for more intensive disinfection.

The best app to control the disinfection process

Snappii offers an app to keep the disinfection process under strong control. The Disinfection Checklist app is based on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Prevention guidelines and helps individuals and businesses perform 38 checks. The app also contains a list of products that have been pre-approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use against emerging enveloped viral pathogens and can be used during the 2019 novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Users can instantly fill in a pre-made mobile form, add photos, dates, and signatures. Moreover, they can generate the report based on the completed form and submit it. The Disinfection Checklist app is the best pocket tool to monitor the regularity and quality of disinfection. Learn more about the app from this video. If the Disinfection Checklist app does not fully meet your needs, contact the Snappii team to discuss app customization.

A clean and tidy work environment contributes to better working conditions, higher productivity, and lesser safety issues or accidents. This way, warehouse maintenance activities should be given as much priority as other daily operations. Here are some tips to keep the warehouse at its best.

A disorganized warehouse also degrades workflow. Use some tools to make the workspace organized. Floor labels and markings are a simple and efficient way of organizing a warehouse. Mark flow of traffic and forklift routes, designate positions of various warehouse equipment and inventory, and more. Also, use barriers to cordon off certain parts of a warehouse and make moving easier, faster, and safer.

3. Recycling
