Every effort should be made to ensure that the investment in a filing system is substantial and perceived as absolutely essential. When should you invest in such a system? That’s the key question.
A few signs, such as loss of business because of unorganised files or loss of vital information because of the inability of your employees to retrieve the desired file in a suitable time are indications enough.
These are the signs that the filing system is a must for your office. Following is a more detailed checklist.
• Do your employees often misplace files?
If yes, then this can be damaging in today’s dynamic business environment where each second is precious and efficiency is the key.
• Does your office have too many departments but you want them to be manageable from a single point?
If yes, then should definitely invest in a filing system as it will help you maintain multiple compartments, while enabling you to handle them all from just one point.
