Space Saving Solutions- Aperture Card Scanning

July 3rd, 2017

Saving space has been a hot topic for a long time but before you start investing in the latest foldaway furniture, take a look at those boxes of aperture cards instead.

Space! It’s out of this world

So you’re looking for a space saving solution for the office and who can blame you? It doesn’t come cheap, especially in London where office space is some of the most expensive in the world. This has led a lot of businesses to look for ways they can reduce the amount of space they need. Bizarre contraptions and pop up offices are now regular occurrences and anything that reduces the space needed to run a successful business seems to be a good thing.

Use It or Lose It

On the other side, there is sometimes the view that if you are renting space at a premium rate, you need to use every inch of it. This is not true as airier and brighter office can actually bring more profit in the long run with higher office morale resulting in better productivity.

A Better Solution for your Aperture Cardsaperture card

If you’re still storing aperture cards in boxes around the office then you’re missing one glaringly obvious space saving trick.

Aperture cards are rarely used anymore with the business world increasingly utilising digital technologies. This has resulted in a lot of companies scanning their aperture cards which helps to free up space while also letting them deal digitally with the files that were previously only able to be viewed on the cards.

Other benefits of going digital with your aperture cards include;

  • Instant file retrieval
  • Easier file sharing capabilities
  • Reduced or even abolished storage costs
  • Off-site file access
  • Files are protected from loss, theft and damage
