Sometimes construction costs get in the way of intuitive design. Have you ever been in a hotel or timeshare where a big bank of switches were a big source of frustration? Well SwitchIDs for your commercial property could be the low cost, great looking, simple solution to your problem. Read Jane's story and see if your property might be suffering from a similar problem.
Jane Anderson walked into the time share property in Lake Geneva, WI. She had just won a 2-day stay at this beautiful timeshare condo, and couldn’t wait to spend a fantastic weekend in Lake Geneva.
The first thing she noticed was that the spacious living room/kitchen had seven switches on one wall to the left, and after some investigating, it became clear that these switches controlled everything from the gas fireplace in the living room to the light over the dining room table and the light above the main door. One even turned on a light in the bathroom. This seemed rather odd, and while it made sense to her that from a construction perspective it was probably the easiest way build these rooms, her experience as a guest suffered a little each time she attempted to find the right switch.
Jane’s grandparents had recently moved into an assisted living facility, and when she visited them she noticed that the facility had added some labels placed onto the switch plates above the light switches. After a while, she noticed that these labels were placed above every switch in her grandparent’s room, which made it possible for her grandmother to more easily identify the correct switch for the appliance she wanted to control.
She googled “Light Switch Labels” and found out that these were SwitchIDs.
She ordered a set for her own home, and now, standing in the condo in Lake Geneva, she understood how SwitchIDs could easily help this resort improve the guest experience, and, as a result, the on-line reviews for this facility would also improve. The design of the room and the placement of the light switches were simply confusing, and the SwitchIDs could so easily help guests navigate the seven switches on the one wall in the living room.
Simply stated, SwitchIDs can be a very simple yet elegant addition to many commercial properties. SwitchIDs are easy to install and provide a great opportunity to significantly improve the customer experience. Additionally, the price point offers an easy opportunity for an investment with a big Return On Investment.
