4 Office Tweaks that Increase Space & Productivity

increase-office-space-productivityTwo of the biggest office complaints are a lack of space and low productivity. It would be nice if we could all work constantly without taking up any physical area, but that’s just not possible yet. Employees actually work better when they are comfortable, focused, and have the right amount of collaboration or private space. This doesn’t mean you have to completely redesign your whole office. You can actually just tweak a few things to get many of the same results in increased space and productivity.

1. Instead of replacing your whole storage system, add a movable tracked system.

Storage can take up a lot of space. But it doesn’t have to. Instead of adding more rows of shelving or lateral cabinets that will all need a lot of space, think about putting them on tracks. This way you removed the aisles typically needed to access stored items. (Check out our selection movable tracked systems that you can use to maximize your storage space.)

2. Create a collaborative space quickly with nest-n-stack tables.

There aren’t always meetings happening in the conference room, so many times it just sits there empty and only gets used when teams need to collaborate. Now, you can use it for more with the nest-n-stack tables. They set-up in seconds for easy collaboration, and then fold down and stack up just as fast to move out of the way for other activities.

3. Use hanging compartments so you don’t have to convert your filing system.

Top tab, end tab, color coded, large and small. More than likely over the years your filing system has changed, leaving you with a lot of different types of files. Instead of spending the time and money converting all of those files to one system (that you may not like within a few years), put them all in hanging compartments. Any type of file will fit in the compartments, and they’ve got a magnified label that makes for easy identification and retrieval.

4. For extra storage security add some rolling doors.

Locking file cabinets are great for securing information. Too bad they take up so much space and won’t store anything but top tab files. An easy solution to store all kinds of information is to move items to open shelving. But what about the security? Well, all you have to do is add rolling doors, and instantly everything is safe and secure.

With all of these innovative products, you will easily make the most of your space and keep your employees productive. And if you didn’t see what you were looking for, visit us online at StoreMoreStore or give us a call 1-855-786-7667. We are happy to help!

4 Solutions for Increasing Storage Capacity in Less Office Space

storage solutions for the modern officeAll over the country businesses are downsizing their physical office spaces. Just four years ago each employee was allocated 225 sq. ft. of space, now they’re down to 150sq. ft. There are a multitude of reasons for these changes: rising costs of real-estate; increases in workers telecommuting or hotelling; and businesses switches to open office designs. But one thing hasn’t changed – businesses still have stuff to store.

Trying to maintain your storage capacity in less physical space is hard when you’re still relying on outdated storage systems like lateral file cabinets. To adapt to the modern office space, you’ll need to change the way you think about storage, and we can help. Here are 4 different storage solutions for stuff at your office that will maintain or even increase your storage capacity in a smaller space.

1. Convert Paper Files to Digital Documents

According to a story published on Entrepreneur.com, for every 30 copies printed in an office, 39% of them are just thrown away. On top of that, it costs about $25,000 to fill a four-drawer cabinet that holds 15-20,000 files, and $2,000 per year to maintain it.

To save on paper, labor, and space costs, many companies are moving (at least partially) to digital documents. And if you’re ready to take that step, we can help. Read more about our document scanning services in a previous blog here.

2. Sliding Storage Shelvingstorage solutions for increasing capacity in small spaces

Many times it’s not the storage system itself that takes up all your space, it’s actually the space you need to access the system. Like the space for the drawer to extend in a lateral file cabinet, or the aisles between each row of shelving.

Sliding storage shelving gets rid of this unnecessary access space, and gives you back the floor space. Find out how sliding storage shelving works to get rid of clutter and save space here.

3. Oblique Hanging Compartments

Directly transferring office files into a perfectly organized open shelving system means you could fit three times the number of files into half the floor space required with lateral or vertical drawer file cabinets. But how can you transfer top tab files to open shelving without converting to side tab folders? You do it with Oblique hanging compartments.

The Oblique hanging compartments enable you to move to a more efficient style of storage shelving, without converting your filing system. Take a look at all the available Oblique hanging compartments here.

4. Rotary Storage Cabinets

Rotary storage cabinets work for everything in your office including files, office supplies, boxes, binders, books computer media, and more. And since the cabinets have two sides and spin 360 degrees, they provide way more storage capacity in much less space.

In fact, you can fit the stuff from 3 lateral cabinets in just one rotary storage cabinet. Find out what else you gain with rotary storage cabinets here.

These are just a few storage solutions for increasing capacity in less office space. To see more options click here. Or you can give us a call at 1-855-786-7667, and we can design a personalized storage system just for you.

Use Sliding Bin Shelving to Organize Small Parts

Industrial type businesses have been storing small parts in bins for years. The reasons are simple:sliding bin shelving 2 rows

  • bins allow you to use color coding to speed up retrieval
  • small parts stay put and won’t slip through cracks
  • various size bins will store many types of parts
  • bins are an inexpensive investment

But there is one major drawback to using bins: they take up a lot of space. And if you keep them on shelves that don’t adjust, you’re wasting even more space. So how can you reap all the benefits of bin storage without wasting so much space? Use sliding bin shelving!

The result is a high capacity storage system that stores the greatest number of items in the smallest footprint.

How to Store Stuff in Your Office and Get Rid of Clutter

Stuff and Clutter: It’s EVERYWHERE!

Pile filing. Everyone does it. That stack of paper that starts out small and over time grows into this massive thing that just won’t go away. No matter how much you try, it just keeps growing. And of course next to it is a glorious mess of pens, calculators, cords, and whatever office supply item you can think of. It’s not just you either; it’s everyone in the office. Clutter is everywhere, and let’s be honest, it drives you crazy. How can you store all this stuff and get rid of clutter? StoreMoreStore has the answer – sliding shelving.

What’s So Great About Sliding Shelving? store stuff in sliding storage solutions

Why is sliding shelving better than the pile filing system or even a lateral cabinet system? Well for one, you can store both files and other office supplies like pens, paper clips, computer cords, paper, and so much more – all in one place. And that place is off your desk and out of sight.

Another reason to use sliding shelving is the massive amount of space that you can save. Instead of having a row of shelving, an aisle, and then another row of shelving, you have back to back rows of shelving. Without that aisle in the middle, you can store more stuff in less floor space. Accessing that back row is simple because the front row slides on tracks to move out-of-the-way.

If you are wondering how to organize all your stuff in sliding shelving, it’s easy too. Use the back row for things that almost never get used but that you have to keep around the office. Then, use the front row for stuff you access and need every day.

Think about all the time and energy you will save with sliding shelving. No more digging through the piles and coming up empty-handed. No more stacking old boxes of stuff on top of the lateral file cabinets. The clutter will just disappear. And if you really want to never see the stuff again, add a door. Not only will it hide everything in the shelves, it will add that extra layer of security without an ugly “keep out” sign.

Now where can you get this awesome sliding shelving we’ve told you so much about? From us at StoreMoreStore! (Did you really think we would tell you all these great things and then leave you hanging?) We have tons of sliding shelving systems you can shop for online. So what are you waiting for? Go shop!
