What Type Of Business Or Organization Can Benefit By Using A Podium Or Lectern? 0

Have you ever stopped to think of all the ways a lectern or podium can be used? Or what type of businesses or organizations can benefit by using a podium or lectern?

When I thought about it, there are many uses for a podium or lectern, such as:

Churches – As lecterns are smaller than a pulpit, churches often use a lectern as a secondary source, to read scripture from or make announcements.

            NC2W

Educational Facilities – Will most likely use a podium or lectern for Student Orientation, Prep Rallies, Debate Competitions, Award Ceremonies or Banquets, in the Classroom and of course Graduation Ceremonies.

            PDCON

Libraries – Many libraries use a lectern for informational meetings, conferences, and lectures to promote lifelong learning through a broad range of topics

            K-2

Restaurants – Use a podium as a Host Stand, that can accommodate seating charts, reservation logs and menus.

            LCTAARCO

Concierge – Hotels are opting for a podium in lieu of a desk. By doing so, it creates the concierge area more welcoming and accessible.

Airports – You have seen podiums or lecterns all over the airport, being used in many different capacities. The one that comes to mind is the Security Checkpoint, where they check your ID and Boarding Pass.

Funeral Homes – Have a chapel to conduct funerals or memorial services, which features a podium to read a eulogy, scriptures, and remembrances from.

            NO 8401

Church Wood Pulpit Pedestal NO 8401

Auction Houses - A podium is used to present inform to the bidding public about an item(s) for sale and to take bids.

            PDHER

Charity or Volunteer Organizations – Use a podium or lectern to promote their charity or organization and for fundraising events, meetings, programs, and banquets.

            T-40

Banquet/Reception Halls – Most have a podium available for conferences, meetings, wedding receptions to use for presentations, training sessions and to toast the bride and groom.

            PDROY

Valet Parking – With the increase of valet parking many restaurants, hotels, stores, night clubs, hospitals, concert and sporting events have installed a valet station, which is a podium that has numbered key slots to identify a customers vehicle. These podiums are mobile and can be moved from place to place.

            PD100KEY

These are only a few of the places that come to mind. There are many other venues that use them.

Do I Need To Supply My Tax Exemption Certificate To Purchase A Podium? 0

It is beneficial to you and Podiums Direct that a Tax Exemption Certificate be collected at the time of purchase.

Why is it beneficial to me? The Tax Exemption Certificate is proof that you can legally buy an item tax free.

Why is it beneficial to Podiums Direct? It is important that we have a Tax Exemption Certificate on file for any Tax-Exempt organization transaction or we put ourselves at risk and will be held liable for the unpaid taxes.

Sales Tax Exemption Certificates are required whenever we make a sale of taxable goods and do not collect sales tax in a state in which we are required to.

Who is Tax Exempt? Most likely if you are a school, church, non-profit organization, or charitable organization. If you are unsure, check with your company’s Business Administrator.

What is the renewal period for a Tax Exemption Certificate? This varies by state and by type of exemption issued.

So, at the time of your purchase, our customer service representative will request you to send your Tax Exemption Certificate to sales@podiumsdirect.com

In conclusion, it is important that we collect a Tax Exemption Certificate for each purchase made by a Tax Exempt Organization.

I hope this blog has been helpful and informative.

Podium Reviews… We Love Them 0

In the past reviews or recommendations have largely been by word of mouth, but with the birth of social media, posting on-line reviews of a product and/or company is easy and popular and crucial to any business.

To recap what a customer review is; it is an evaluation made by a customer who has purchased or has had an experience with your product or service. It is a form of customer feedback on electronic commerce or on-line shopping sites.

Are customer reviews important? In today’s competitive marketplace, they are especially important. In fact, 90% of consumers read on-line reviews before visiting a business and 88% of consumers trust on-line reviews.

Customers who leave reviews feel like they have a certain loyalty and relationship with a company, which allows them to have a voice to provide meaningful analysis.

When a visitor does leave feedback on a business or product, it often motivates others to do the same, which in turns increases company awareness and increases sales.

If you have purchase one of our items or have experienced our customer service, we would love to hear what you have to say and tell us how we are doing.

Thanks again for stopping by to read our blog.

Today’s Libraries, Not Just Books… Programs With A Podium Or Lectern 0

Traditionally, libraries were a place set apart to contain books, periodicals and other materials for reading, viewing, listening, studying and reference that may be read or borrowed.

Today, many libraries offer public spaces for library programs, community and cultural events.

These public spaces are used by local and cultural organizations, along with businesses to hold informational meetings, conferences, lectures and other special events throughout the year.

The functionality of these events is to promote lifelong learning through a broad range of topics to a diverse group of people, including business professionals, parents, students and community members, etc.

With an increase in these programs many libraries have invested in a podium or lectern to accommodate these events.

Our collection of podiums and lecterns consist of many styles and models that will fit any library.
