Turnkey services are the smart choice for your next expansion or greenfield project, but why should you choose a turnkey partner?
The term turnkey refers to a service where the contractor or provider undertakes the entire responsibility from design through completion and commissioning. The client or customer only has to turn the proverbial key to make everything function as it should.
In other words, it’s getting the full package — design, construction, installation and setup — all from one partner. No shuffling schedules. No managing multiple contractors. No trying to get multiple companies to communicate with each other. Turnkey services provide everything you need to get your project done right and on-time.
What makes turnkey solutions so great? Here are 5 ways that turnkey solution services benefit your facility expansion or greenfield project.
1. One Company to Contact
Nothing kills the timeline of your project like having to communicate with multiple companies — and trying to get multiple companies to communicate with each other. You’ll find yourself spending hours trying to communicate a single change to all the parties involved.
A turnkey solution eliminates the hassle of communicating with multiple companies. Rather than contacting your material handling designer, following up with the construction, then reaching out to the electrical power and contacting the designer again, you only need to contact one company.
One email. One phone call. Everything taken care of.
2. One Company Invoicing
Ever tried keeping track of multiple invoices from multiple companies for a single piece of equipment? It’s not a fun nor easy task.
Turnkey eliminates the invoice mess, as all invoices come from the same company. Imagine how much easier your accounting process will be when you only receive a few invoices from the same company for your project.
3. Design and Manufacturing in Sync
Have a change to make to your project? Want to add in a new feature or change a dimension? With a turnkey solution, that’s not a problem!
When your material handling system, facility layout design, automation, and construction are handled by the same company, changes are easy. Turnkey solutions provide building design, process automation, construction, and material handling in one — creating a communication line that is in sync at all times. Any change to the design of your equipment is immediately communicated and factored into the installation process without extra phone calls and headaches.
4. Better Value
When all services are all handled by the same company, it saves you time AND money.
It’s easier for a turnkey companies to provide you a better value for their services and improve the cost of the project.
5. Greater Quality
When one company handles your project from concept to completion, it’s easier to guarantee a higher quality product.
Right from the start, a turnkey partner can set the level of quality needed for your project, and guarantee that each team — design, construction, process automation, and material handling — all provide that same level of quality.
Using one company is more likely to produce a higher quality than using multiple companies for the same project. Multiple companies causes setbacks and delays in the process as mistakes need to be corrected.
