Using your funding wisely – The Economics of Quality

The Economics of Quality
Some people will say that JAGGO is expensive. However, if you compare the longevity of our products against cheaper alternatives, it is easy to see why this is a misconception. Budget furniture mostly lasts less than four years, and can look terrible after just a few months. JAGGO will never last less than 10 years, and still looks great even then.
But product replacement costs are not the whole picture. Hidden costs such as a poor report, unimpressed parents and unfilled places will have a far greater impact.
A decision to invest in quality childcare equipment, rather than cheaper alternatives, is a wise one.Play-Area
