5 Reason to use a Custom Whiteboard Overlay
VMT develop, design, and produce bespoke Custom Whiteboard Overlays for a many applications and industries. Printed Whiteboards, a key Visual Management tool, can be used for monitoring and driving performance in many areas of a business such as: Safety, Quality, Cost, Delivery and People. Printed Whiteboards are also an excellent Visual Management tool to facilitate problem solving activity and manage major projects.
We have a long history of supplying Custom Whiteboard overlays for factories, warehouses, train maintenance depots and more.
We thought it would be useful for us to share some of the key reasons why your business might benefit from applying Custom Whiteboard Overlays.
Applying a Custom Whiteboard Overlay to a whiteboard that is currently in use to serve a basic operational purpose, will add a layer of professionalism and corporate branding to material assets that are already in place. This helps to elevate a workplace and foster an environment where professionalism and promotion of corporate identity become the norm.
Standardisation is one of the foundations of a Lean organisation. Having standards means that’s it’s easy to identify when something is “not ok” or varies from the standard. Applying Printed Whiteboard Overlays to facilitate Visual Management helps to ensure the right data or information is being tracked/recorded/displayed; and that across a site or organisation, the Visual Management approach is the same. This is important as it means people working across departments are as effective in one department as they might be in another, and that management are able to digest and understand the performance in the tiers they are supervising and reporting back from.
Applying a Custom Whiteboard Overlay to a whiteboard that is currently in use removes the need to procure a new board. Visual Management Technology don’t print direct to board we apply a dry wipe laminated Vinyl “skin” to our boards. This means if a client has boards in place on site, but they’d like to use Printed Whiteboards they can utilise boards that they already are in possession of to create Printed Whiteboard Visual Management.
As outlined in the (Recycle Equipment) section above, Visual Management Technology don’t print direct to board we apply a dry wipe laminated Vinyl skin to our boards. This means that as projects or business priorities change, the design to be displayed on the Visual Management boards that we supply can also be changed. So, if perhaps a particular Printed Whiteboard is no longer in use because it is no longer operationally required, the skin can be removed, and the Whiteboard can be repurposed somewhere else in the organisation.
High Impact/Low Cost
Applying a Custom Whiteboard Overlay to a whiteboard that is currently in use is a relatively low-cost way of making an impact in your business. With the use of an existing board and just the Overlay to purchase a significant visual and operational impact can be made with a relatively low outlay.
