Like most systems, you don’t realise you need ours until you really need it. That moment, when something goes wrong, is when you wish you’d planned ahead. The moment generally known as too late.
When budgets are tight, investing in potential damage limitation seems unnecessary. ‘Let’s get it built and think about that later’…. ‘everything’s under guarantee, so it’s not like it will cost us for a while if things do go wrong’…. ‘The system we have will do’…
We’ve all heard the spend now, save later mantra but we always imagine later will be someone else’s problem, not ours.
How often has experience shown you that this is not the case? How often are you the ‘someone else’ with the problem?
You weren’t there when the building was built, or when systems were installed but you are there now, when the proverbial is hitting the fan. When systems are failing, when a leak causes flooding in a vital area or when something just plain won’t work, you’re the one who has to sort it out and fast is how it always needs to be sorted.
This is where having comprehensive, correct and instantly available documentation can save you time, money and stress. Knowing how to safely deactivate a faulty component or re-route a system around it to allow continued use without shutting the whole thing down is not the sort of information that a person carries around in their head. It is, however, exactly the sort of information contained in the documentation that came with the product. In an emergency, it is also exactly the information you need.
