Ten minutes. It’s not a lot of time when you think about it; it’s barely enough time to walk over to your office’s break room and grab a cup of coffee. But did you know in the time it takes for you to write your next email, you could find solutions to issues impacting your business? ISSA’s wide range of members-only benefits can address the following concerns you face. Read on to learn more.

How much is that company worth? Should I buy them out?
Determining the exact value of a business requires extensive research and consultation with a valuation specialist. Sounds complex, right? Well, there’s good news: ISSA has worked with the Profit Planning Group to develop a calculator provides such an estimate quickly and easily. Simply answer a few simple questions―and maybe a couple of not-so-simple ones―and our template will provide you with three unique valuation estimates: liquidation value, discounted future earnings value, and assets and earnings value.

How can I improve my client meetings?
As an ISSA member, you have the benefit of having an ISSA representative present at your customer meeting. Our experts will advocate our association’s message: that facility decision-makers stop thinking of cleaning as a cost and start thinking of it as the profit center it truly is. We will explain how the ISSA Value of Clean® tools can demonstrate to facility decision-makers that cleaning is a necessary investment in better health, a better environment, and a better bottom line. Contact the ISSA Member Services department for availability at membership@issa.com or 847-982-0800.
