Benefits of Claiming Back Space in Your Office
If you've taken a look at our posts on the benefits of document scanning, you should be clued up on why we think our services are a positive thing. But let's take a deeper look at one of those benefits and what it could mean for your company.
Space. What do you think of when you hear that word? Freedom? Opportunities? Cat swinging? You can claim back the space in your building which has been swallowed up by filing cabinets, folders and boxes of documents. Hiring out a document scanning company would mean you can replace all of those cumbersome things with digitised and fully editable versions that take up no physical space at all. This could leave you with a lot of free space, so then it's just a case of utilising this new found space. Here are a few suggestions as to how you can do that:
If your filing cabinets previously took up a room of their own, scanning your documents and disposing of the original documents could have left you with a perfect size space to rent out. This is a great solution if you feel you already have enough space within the building. Not only will you be able to utilise that empty space but you will also be generating some extra income in the process.
If you have been looking to buy some new technology or resources but didn't have anywhere to put it, this new-found space could be just the solution. Maybe one of the offices needs a printer upgrade but the new printer takes up more space or the office is cold and needs radiators fitting. Replacing filing cabinets with something more useful or aesthetically pleasing will be a positive step for your company.
Are you trying to fit too many of your staff in one office? With the extra space you can shuffle offices and desks around to make a nicer working environment. Maybe you could free up enough space to create a larger room for conferences or group meetings. Getting that opportunity to update the office will give you a chance to modernise your office space if you feel as though it is currently stuck in an unattractive time warp. Reshuffling can make changes to the space that you never originally thought possible; you could have your very own Grand Design moment...
At the end of the day, once you have cleared the space, the opportunities are endless. Regardless of what you decide to do, just having more open space in the office will boost staff morale which will then improve efficiency. As we know, a happy workforce is a helpful workforce.
