Folks are often surprised by the answer (which is there’s a fairly long waiting list) and a person now asked me to explain why.
Because part of my competition is social networking; in the spirit of transparency because I believe I will be able to achieve the most people by putting in extra effort in more robust content that I can then share for the advantage of all, I’ve decided to compose a post about how we consider reserved demand (business we’ve already sold / guaranteed ) as well as provide some never before insights to”how it works” in REW.
My hope is clients will have a better understanding / appreciation to why wait intervals exist in REW and also I hope to create some urgency and make them starting to discuss their jobs now instead of pushing them down the road a month, or two, or 3.
I am going to deal with the inevitable question,”What are you doing it?”
So here , an inside look into the service / services aspect of Real Estate Webmasters Inc..
With the help of our amazing PMO pioneer Aayaam Kapoor, I was able to collect a prediction based on demand and capacity and also have shared with you this elaborate graph to help exemplify the current reality of supply / demand here at REW.
2: Capacity: Here is the sum of labour hours we have available from the CORE professional services group for jobs.
3: Managed demand: that can be the month’s need in addition to the hours we’re not able to complete in the preceding month.
4: Don’t wait for a promo. Each year, we have our 12 days of Christmas advertising (we can this year also ) but we’ll almost certainly NOT be offering services as part of this year’s promotion. The reason is likely obvious, it makes no sense to improve demand by providing”discounted” hours if there is a multi-month line of people waiting to buy retail.
Let’s talk about handled demand. This is exactly what generates the wait list, frequently referred to as the”lineup”.
3: Encourage you to start planning sooner! This is the big one! It merely”sounds” as a wait period if you don’t factor in / strategy around a beginning date. If you’re considering doing a large project let us start talking today! You’re able to get your purchase in well ahead of your preferred start date (so it’s possible to begin on that date) and receive your costs in prior to the end of the year.
Projects less than 100 hours require to complete depending on size / complexity.
As I’ve started to talk about projects (particularly large customized projects or updates ) that the topic of the”queue” includes up. IE what’s the wait time to have a project completed?
Of course, borrowing funds has an impact on these classes and their mandates (taking from R & D for instance delays the release of brand new features that would benefit all customers). So this is not an perfect solution for any amount of time. We are borrowing some resources to reduce that September amount today. We’ve got a large project with a deadline, so we’re doing everything we can to make that happen. So it’s not really quite as heavy as it looks for September.
Your first instinct may be to say: I don’t need to wait, I will just hold off until things slow down and place my order then, in reading that. Where there wasn’t a lineup of some kind, as any long term REW customer will inform you, That is a reasonable idea BUT, there has never been a moment in our 15 year history. So you are not saving any delay, then you are adding to it.
So there you have it! Insight into a look at the way we compute / estimate wait times for our agency / services that are professional as well as the REW professional services queue work.
I chose to join our sales supervisor so this month. You may read about the competition at that this facebook post (please don’t hesitate to talk ).
Any comments / questions or if you want to take me on my consulting for the month of September through sociable networking, allow me to know!
Now here is the issue…. This is true TODAY!
So can you we are doing about it?
However, it’s only September 6th. This means that those numbers will go up. Is just another orders of tens to hundreds of hours. This implies by the close of the month of September, we will probably add a few thousand more hours demand thus adding another 2-4 weeks”at least” into the queue.
2: Hire more people! This seems obvious (and it is). We’re actually always hiring designers and good programmers in Real Estate Webmasters. Unfortunately gift is uncommon, and our expansion often outpaces our recruitment. We are working on becoming better, and that I do know we have candidates that are fantastic, so help is always on the way!
As you can observe, September is oversold by 1,674 hours. This means we have to bring those 1,674 hours to October’s workload. And of course October has its resources sold as well, so this means combined we have 5,512 of demand in that month, but only 3,520 of capacity all.
The net result, we”should” be able to finish all the carry over work from September in October, however some of October’s job (1,922 hours of that actually ) must currently get pushed to November.
November is where we could start making up some ground. Back in November, only 2,390 hours have been sold (less than our power of 4,382), which means that we need to have the ability to make up a lot, if not all the”queue” in that month, and in reality it ends up we’d only have 43 hours of work we needed to drive to December.
a few points of calmness (before I begin making it complex ).
It is not enjoy those 43 hours that got pushed from November to December have been waiting since September (a whole 3 months in the queue). It’s more like Septembers hours needed to wait until October, Octobers hours had to wait until November, etc..
Actually, this seems like about a 4-6 week rate which is in reality quite normal at Real Estate Webmasters. When you’ve waited in the queue to your spot, we have the resources you require available and complete the job after.
1: Borrow resources. We actually have a good deal more design and programming tools than just our agency / professional services group.
