How to Organize Your Paper Filing System

Start with Categories & Oblique Hanging Compartments

oblique compartments organize paper filing systemAn article from The Wall Street Journal states, “The average U.S. executive wastes six weeks per year searching for missing information in messy desks and files.” Organizing paperwork is essential for your business; especially when employees are spending more time looking for information when they could be doing something that generates revenue. A quick and easy solution for organizing your paper filing system is to group items by category. And to implement this system, all you need is oblique hanging compartments.

Decide Which Categories You Want for Your Paper Filing System

The first step is to decide on the categories you want to use. For example, a small business might want to categorize their filing system by department (ex. marketing, human resources, accounting). On the other hand, a law firm might choose to categorize paperwork by the cases they’re working on. However you choose to categories your paper filing system, just make sure it’s consistent and easy to use.

Labeling is Easy with the Oblique Hanging Compartments

The next part is where the Oblique hanging compartments come in. Once you’ve got the categories decided, you can create the labels for the compartments. An added bonus to the Oblique system is the labels. You can create color coded labels (one color for each department) or you can use a standard white label. The labels are also magnified, which makes them easier to read from a distance.

Store More Types of Paperwork in Oblique Compartments

color-coded category paper filing systemAnd because the hanging compartments are larger than a typical manila folder, they’re able to hold more and different types of items. You can store papers, brochures, photographs, folders, and more within just one hanging compartment. And you won’t have to worry about tears or splits since the Oblique products are made out of ultra-strong material and weighted to hold 20-25 pounds.

Use Oblique Hanging Compartments Almost Anywhere

The last thing to do is put away your hanging compartments. They can go anywhere from an overhead cubicle to lateral file cabinets, but they work best in open shelving. The reason is that the Oblique compartments are designed to maximize every inch of available space. And by using an open shelving storage system, you’ll save more space in your office.

You’ll find all of our Oblique hanging compartments online at our store. And if you need assistance getting started setting up your paper filing system, it’s no problem! We will help. Just give us a call at 1-855-786-7667.


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.

3 Most Popular Ways to Store Technical Drawings

popular ways to store technical drawingsEngineers, architects, and construction managers all have one major thing in common – the need to efficiently store technical drawings. The best option is to scan them. But if your company can’t do that, then you need another way to store them. Here are 3 of the most popular ways to store technical drawings.

1. Rolled Up in Cubby Shelves

Rolling up your technical drawings and storing them in cubby shelves works great for most document types and sizes. You can store multiple sized drawings within just one cubby. And because they are rolled up, they are easy to access. Another reason to store technical drawings in cubby shelves is that your drawings are up off the floor and safe from potential damage. Finally, the cubby shelves are very cost-effective when you have a large amount of technical drawings to store.

2. Flattened in Flat File Cabinets

Within each drawer of the flat file cabinets you can store a large amount of technical drawings. And because they are stored flat instead of folded, you can be sure there won’t be any creases or marks. The cabinets also protect your drawings from potential environmental damage. The flat file cabinets are more expensive; however, if you need your technical drawings secure, they are your best option.

3. Suspended in Hanging File Compartments

technical drawing storage solutionsIf you group technical drawings together and need them labeled, then storing them suspended in hanging file compartments is a great option. The hanging file compartments also work really well if you already have shelving in place because the compartments will fit right in. And once again because your drawings are stored flat, they are safe from damage.

There are many different ways you can store your technical drawings, but these are by far the most popular. And you can find them all online from us at StoreMoreStore. And if you need another option or have any questions, please give us a call at 1-855-786-7667.
