Third-Party Management, Questions Answered
August 12, 2015 in Storage Tips
One of the top questions people ask when they want to know more about third party management would have to be what exactly is third party management anyway? People want to know what it is that these management teams do, how do the teams get started, who do third parties work with, etc.
When a company’s owner seeks third party management over self-management, they are essentially looking for help, and these third party teams have the wealth of experience needed to aid with that help.
Third parties will work with any owner that needs them in whichever field they specialize in. So, to answer that question, third parties work with people in fields all across the board. Every third party is different, with that said, third party teams help in areas ranging from suppliers, vendors, re-sellers, brokers, you name it! Third party teams over-see everything that goes on within the company and will be there to offer any assistance in creating plans to move forward. For clarification, third party teams are not to be confused with the owners of the company. Think of the management team as the driver of a taxi cab, the owner tells the driver where he wants to go and the driver gets them there.
Third parties are essentially a team within a team. They house people with skills across the board, which is where those stock brokers, sellers, marketers, etc. come in. Third party teams hire people with these skills to have more pull from owners. The more services they can offer the more independent company owners are going to want them rather than hiring numerous companies for numerous jobs or doing it themselves.
There are so many ways to explain what a third party team can do for a company, and everyone will have their own explanation on how a third party should work. No two third party management teams are alike, each one has their own way of operating. Be sure to do your research when choosing a third party management company and look for management style as well as performance.
