Deciding how to store files is important for any business because every file should be stored in a systematic manner so that they do not get lost or damaged. They should be easy to access and filing should be less time consuming if you use the right filing storage system for your business.
There are two types of filing systems. The first one is the lateral file cabinet which means it is horizontal and the second one is the vertical file cabinet which has files facing the drawer.
Choosing out the correct system to maintain and store your files really saves you time and precious office space.
Before choosing any file storage system you should consider certain points:
• The space required by the file cabinet
• Its portability, such as mobile filing
• Ease of maintenance
• File holding capacity
• Fire and security issues
• Easy of accessing the files
