File under filing capacity

Given the economy today, everyone is being asked to do a little more and work a bit harder. The same should be expected of the storage space – it should be working a little harder too! Kardex Remstar dynamic filing solutions can optimize office space creating more meeting rooms or work stations to increase efficiency which can pay dividends in the long run.

Two main factors to consider when analyzing current storage solutions are space performance and filing productivity.

The number of filing inches that can be accommodated within the footprint of the storage system is a key performance efficiency indicator. By taking advantage of cubic volume and not square area, the Kardex Remstar Lektriever Electric Lateral Filing (ELF) system optimizes floor space. The unit can be constructed right up to the ceiling, maximizing floor to truss space to provide increased filing density. One Lektriever ELF unit provides the filing capacity of 17 standard four drawer filing cabinets in 70 per cent less floor space. This allows offices to turn previously occupied storage space into additional work space.

The number of filing actions required per day along with the length of time required for each file action determines filing productivity. Time is often wasted with inefficient manual filing activities such as walking around the office and searching through cabinets. Using a Lektriever ELF all files and documents are delivered directly to the operator virtually eliminating time spent walking and searching and improving filing productivity by 160%. The Lektriever ELF enables tasks to be carried out from a seated or standing position, without the need to move away from the workstation.
