Benchmark Signs has successfully coordinated signage programmes for companies across South Africa, Africa and overseas, both large and small – and we believe that our project management acumen is what makes it happen. Here are some of the services clients can access as part of our all-encompassing solution:
Benchmark Signs believes that sound strategic planning lays the groundwork for any successful sign programme, by detailing the important steps, responsibilities, schedules and desired outcomes. Included in the range of factors we consider when devising clients’ signage strategies are: branding objectives, logistical realities, budgets and geographical location.
One of Benchmark’s ultimate objectives is to reduce cost-to-client. To achieve high-quality signage at the best prices, we encourage competitive bidding, use cost-effective design, carry out quality control inspections, maintain inventory control and conduct supplier invoice review.
Any signage programme must begin with a meticulous examination of the relevant site/s. By sending a dedicated team to explore each site and to gather all of the necessary data, Benchmark Signs is able to undertake the most comprehensive site surveys on offer in the industry.
Benchmark Signs follows a philosophy of combining research with investigation. We gather information from site surveys, architectural drawings and clients themselves, and use this to develop recommendations for new or improved signage. Once more, core considerations like client’s branding objectives, budgets and the relevant authority approval play a vital role.
Manufacture, delivery and installation are overseen by our project management team, which also monitors suppliers to make sure that clients’ briefs and timeframes are honoured. In addition, Benchmark Signs appreciates the brand damage that can result from an out-of-commission sign, and provides maintenance services to keep signage in the best condition possible.
