A new service has been launched to help small businesses shrink their
filing to free-up office space and find documents faster.
A new service, Papershrink, has been
launched in Peterborough to help small businesses free-up valuable
office space and to save time finding the documents they need.
Papershrink turns filing cabinets into
CDs using electronic document scanning. This shrinks the amount of
space needed to store documents, reduces the time needed to retrieve
documents and so saves companies money.
The complete contents of one filing
cabinet, which takes up around 1.52 m of expensive office space, can
be stored on one CD. Documents held on CD or on a server can be
accessed from a PC, so people don't need to waste time leaving their
desk to find a file as it's right there in front of them within a few
"Document scanning has been used
for many years in large organisations, but small businesses often
aren't aware of it or find it too inflexible or expensive for their
needs", explains co-founder Catherine Burbage. "We offer a
service which is tailored to the needs of small businesses, so they
can get the benefits big companies get from document scanning, but in
a way which suits them".
Papershrink offers a free trial so new
customers can check they get exactly what they want before they buy.
The service has proved particularly successful with professionals who
need to store a lot of paperwork for many years, but also need fast
access to it.
