Thomas de Jesus - Technical Communication Class - Final Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Transitioning for A Better Tomorrow
    Replacing Disposable Compressed Air Products with Eco-Friendly Alternatives
  • 2. Introduction
    Our company was established in 1995
    Top provider of computer services in U.S.A.
    We provide on-site and depot based services
    Customers from residential to commercial
    • We provide services to major corps
    • 3. Chase Bank
    • 4. Alamo Car Rental
    • 5. K-Mart Corporation
    • 6. Many others enjoy our support services.
  • A Necessary Step
    • Dust and dirt removal required upon service completion.
    • 7. Dust causes heat insulation and damage to electrical circuitry
    • 8. Dust “grabs” components and circuitry.
    Technician uses Disposable Compressed Air to remove dust.
    Dust removal with compressed air only 80% effective.
  • 9. Problem with Process
    Technician discards empty can into garbage.
    104 Cans are used by each tech every year.
    104 Cans X 90 Tech = 9,360 Cans
    9,360 cans sent to landfill by our company.
    Aluminum decomposition time = 200 to 500 years (Lawhorn 2008).
  • 10. Problem with Process (Cont’d)
    Compressed air products contain harmful chemicals and are not accepted by most recycling centers.
  • 11. An Alternative to Self-Destruction
    WD-40 Turbo Air Blower
    Re-chargeable and re-usable air powered cleaning system
    Capable of 30 MPH continuous blast of air.
    Sold with delicate brush attachment and concentrated blast nozzle.
    Three-Year Product Guarantee.
  • 12. Our Financial Impacts
    Current Supply Costs
    Each tech uses 104 cans of air. (Per Yr.)
    90 techs x 104 cans (Per Yr.) = 9,360 Cans (per year)
    Average cost per can = $6.65 Each
    9,360 Cans X $6.65 = $62,244 Per Year (Compressed Air Supply Cost)
    Three Year Supply Cost = $186,732
  • 13. Our Financial Impacts (Cont.)
    Projected Supply Costs
    Each tech utilizes one reusable air device.
    One blower unit per tech. (90 Units)
    Unit Retail Cost = $29.99 Each
    90 units X $29.99 = $2,699.10 (Three Yr Cost)
    One Year Supply Savings = $62,244
  • 14. Our Financial Impacts (Cont.)
    Current and Projected Supply Costs
    Three Year Supply Savings = $184,032.90
  • 15. Our Contribution to Earth
    9,360 Cans diverted from landfills!
    9,360 Cans containing traces of harmful chemicals are kept from landfills each year.
  • 16. No Time to Waste!
    Approval Today…
    =
    …Results Tomorrow!
    The Time to Act is NOW!
  • 17. References
