With so many aspects of business continuity and emergency preparedness, it’s easy for property managers to end up with multiple vendors all striving for the same end result – ensuring your building is prepared for and able to respond to an emergency situation. While it might seem like by having so many emergency preparedness and business continuity vendors you are going above and beyond to protect your building, employees and tenants, however it can actually be adding unnecessary stress and work to you as a property manager. Throughout this blog, you will learn why vendor consolidation is more beneficial than having multiple vendors and how to use an all-in-one solution to achieve full vendor consolidation while ensuring the safety of your building.


Recognizing that Vendor Consolidation is Beneficial


Having multiple vendors can be confusing, stressful and impractical. As a property manager, you have a lot of responsibilities and any way to reduce your daily workload is greatly appreciated. By consolidating your business continuity and emergency preparedness vendors, you will be able to spend less time making calls to multiple people and more time focusing on your other responsibilities and most importantly, your business.

Here are a few ways that vendor consolidation can make your life as a property manager a lot easier:

  • Reduce Expenses – It’s no question that when you buy items in bulk, your overall expense for each product or service decreases. This is no different when it comes to switching to an all-in-one business continuity solution. When you have one vendor for emergency notification, one for incident management, one for business continuity software and go to different consultants to help you create your Emergency Action Plan and Business Continuity Plans, you end up with a significant amount of extra fees and expenses. By finding a solution that is able to provide all of these services and technology, such as Preparis you will be able to save money. Preparis found that on average, our solution costs 25% less than competitors, even though we have more to offer.
  • Eliminate Additional Stress – Being a property manager comes with stress as is, when you add having to keep in constant communication with multiple vendors, having to ensure a check for each of those vendors gets cut and learning and understanding a wide array of products from said vendors, you end up overwhelmed and exhausted. With Preparis, you are able to have your entire emergency preparedness and business continuity solution in one easy-to-use platform.
  • Save Time – By implementing an all-in-one business continuity solution such as Preparis, you will have everything you need to keep your business prepared in one place.

By doing this, all of your business continuity needs are in one place, rather than having to go through multiple vendors, saving you time and money.
