Have you ever asked someone WHY they do something a certain way, only to get the answer “We’ve always done it that way.”? Do they continue to use an old system because it’s truly the best, most efficient way or is it because it’s easier to stay the course than to evaluate and improve? This is an age-old question.
What is the cost of change? There are certainly “costs” involved in making change, whether it’s changing a vendor or updating a drawing. You might consider the cost of your time to evaluate the old process to determine potential changes that could increase profitability. Does the increased efficiency create a return on your time investment? In other words, is it worth the change? If a change requires updates to your purchasing system (new vendors, updating Bills of Material, certifications), it may seem a daunting task but even so, you should consider the long term benefits of such a change.
Part of our focus, when working with established manufacturers, is on the cost of ANY change we might be causing. Even a “drop-in replacement” can have a positive effect on your bottom line. It’s possible that by going through the work of adding a new vendor, certifying and approving that vendor, you might experience a reduction in warranty repair costs, or even shipping costs.
We believe that our business is not just about selling latches, but about helping our customers become more profitable, more efficient.
Call us today, or use our Contact Form to reach us. We’d love to get to know you, learn about your company, and see if we can help you. We promise never to make you change for the sake of change.
NOVEMBER, 2010 – Steeves Agencies is proud to announce that we are officially members of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce! We’re looking forward to being actively involved in the Chamber’s activities and meeting its other members.
The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce is the leading organization representing business in our community. Incorporated as The Winnipeg Board of Trade by an act of the Provincial Legislature on March 8, 1873, The Chamber is older than the City of Winnipeg by six months.
Today, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce continues to serve as the “voice of business,” ensuring that the business perspective is heard on the issues of the day.

This is one of the areas where we’re different. We don’t just look up “Butterfly latches” when you call, we ask you to describe it so that we know exactly what you need.
Our job is not just selling latches. Our job is to help you find the right latch for your project, whatever it’s called.
Can’t find it in our website? Use our contact form and let us know what you need. We’d be happy to call you back and help you today.
