Organising the Past to Make the Future Brighter
Being asked to retrieve a file from the archive room at an office I used to work in used to fill me with fear and
trepidation. The room itself was old, musty, dusty and dilapidated but compared to the state of the archive
and the archives themselves, the room looked relatively modern!
Most structures work best when the foundation is sound and perhaps you
could perhaps describe the archives as the foundation of many businesses that have to retain records and
documents of important information.
So, it really makes a difference when your archiving system
is in order. You need to analyze
your available space and work out just what kind of archive shelving you are going to need for the sorts of
files you intend to store.
It’s probably fair to say that most archive
are designed with boxes in mind but you can also get shelving systems that primarily store lever
Tailoring a system that suits your requirements perfectly is both cost effective and enables you to establish
an archiving operation that is easy to understand, clearly labelled and will ensure that the rest of your
business can work as smoothly as your newly installed archives.
