If you've ever walked into a home improvement store then you've witnessed pallet rack shelving units in action. Although these shelves look pretty tough, they don't right off the bat look like they could hold the things they do. The sheer size of many pallets full of product wrapped in saran wrap (or equivalent type of plastic to hold things stacked together) make people wonder if they will fall on top of them! Dallas

When store or business owners choose to install high density filing systems or update their existing file system with a newer one, they're often plagued by worries that their company will suffer while the job is undertaken. These concerns are perfectly normal and common among many business operators looking for filing improvements or mail room furniture updates.

Warehouse Some companies shuffle employees from one location to another on a regular basis, others do so infrequently and some never need to transfer employees at all. If your business falls into one of the first two categories it's in your best interest to find a moving company with which you can establish corporate relocation services that fit your needs.You know that when you need to have your employees relocated it's critical that their move is accomplished with a minimum of disruption and chaos. It can cost your business dearly if a critical worker is busy managing their move when they should be performing the work that YOU need them to do. Here is a little advice from an experienced moving consultant on what to look for from your corporate relocation services provider.At most companies it's the human resources department that is usually saddled with the unenviable job of organizing employee relocations, but these folks are busy enough managing their regular tasks, plus they aren't moving professionals so they may overlook critically important aspects of move management. Little mistakes or unplanned-for jobs can snowball into a big problem when multiplied by the fact that you may be relocating a number of employees and their families at the same time.If you establish a corporate relocation program with a reliable moving company you can count on receiving complete move management from start to finish. All you will be required to do is tell them who to relocate, where they need to go and when you need them at their new post. From that point you can relax, secure in the knowledge that a team of professionals will take on the responsibilities associated with achieving the relocation(s) efficiently and with a minimum of disruption to your day-to-day business.The movers will assign a moving consultant AND a moving coordinator to the job; each of these people has a specific role and tasks to fulfill. The moving consultant is generally the first point of contact with the transferring employee and they will arrange for a home visit to discuss the needs of the people being relocated and assess their shipment; discovering exactly what needs to be moved and which (if any) items will remain. They will give out some printed information that outlines the details that explain what will be happening, when it will happen and who is responsible for each task.The moving coordinator is the person responsible for ensuring that everything gets done in a timely manner and is also available at any time by e-mail or phone to answer any questions or concerns that the transferring employees may have.When you are choosing a mover to provide corporate relocation services to your company it's smart to hire a moving company that is affiliated with one of the major van lines. Smaller, unaffiliated moving companies may find it difficult to access services outside of their normal locations if they aren't already connected within the moving industry. A van line affiliated mover will have access to modular moving and storage services across the country and internationally.When the employee relocation(s) is completed you can expect the movers will contact your newly transferred worker(s) to ask them to complete a relocation survey. This allows for the acquisition of valuable feedback that helps the movers fine-tune their corporate relocation services. A moving company that is continually trying to improve its' services is the one you want to hire!

Filing Systems For the Paperless Office

File Tracking Barcode and RFID Every organization needs records management and a records management program. After establishing a records management program and appointing a records management officer, a retention/control schedule should be developed. As needs for filing system improvement and development become apparent, the following twelve-step strategy is recommended.   Purge Inactive Files - Remove inactive and duplicate records from your active filing system in order to improve retrieval and access times. In additional to improving response times, your active filing system will require less floor space. Do not dispose of inactive records at this point.   Inventory Records - Conduct a thorough records inventory. An inventory of your records is just as important to your organization as inventorying parts are to a Parts Manager.   The records inventory will help you evaluate labeling standards, the flow of information, and will be necessary if you plan on converting files to a side-tab file system or Records Management Software.   Convert to a Side-Tab Folder System - Traditional drawer cabinets are not space efficient and slow the file retrieval and refilling process. Shelf-based side-tab filing systems require less floorspace and quicker record retrieval. Do some research to see if converting to a shelf-based side-tab filing system is cost justifiable for your organization. Serious consideration should be given to careful planning, cost justifying, and implementing filing systems appropriate for the needed applications.   Evaluate Current Labeling Standards - Evaluate your current file labeling system to determine if changes need to be made to improve the speed and accuracy of filing. For example, a simple color-coded year label can change the laborious project of purging inactive records into a simple task.     Survey your staff and users for their opinions of labeling methods that would make accessing files quicker and easier.   Choose the correct folder - There are many different types of folders to choose from based on activity, number of documents,  and length of time records will be kept in an active status.   Use Indexes or Partitions- Using folders with indexes and partitions will organize and standardize documents in the file. Organized information provides quicker access to the desired documents and to help maintain the integrity of the file.   Invest in an On-Demand Labeling System - On-Demand labeling is an economical way to improve your filing system. On-Demand labeling software allows you to print an one-piece label from an ink jet or laser printer.   Labels are typically 7" to 8" long and can be printed with any type or style of color-coded labels, name and address information, and barcode labels. On-Demand labeling eliminates individual hand-wrapping of color-coded labels and the additional tasks of typing file name labels. On-Demand labeling can produce alphanumeric labels, top-tab and side-tab labels, and different label styles for different departments within your organization.   Standardize - Standardization of filing systems should be a major goal. Standardizing equipment, supplies, software, procedures, and policies results in  economies of scale and uniformity throughout the organization.   Implement Processes - Implement appropriate processes, technology, equipment, and supplies for each filing system application. Converting to open-shelf file shelving, implementing color coding and bar coding, implementing file indexing, file tracking, and a records retention schedule results in a system that can be integrated with other information systems within the organization.   Implement Records Management Software -  An array of quality records management software packages exist for use in augmenting records management programs, systems, and functions. These programs can prepare and maintain records retention/control schedules, track files and boxes in the office to in storage, and help manage retention of records.   Develop a Records Management Manual - Every organization needs a records management manual. The manual should be a reference guide for your organization and a training tool for new personnel. The manual should provide an explanation of every filing system in your organization including detailed filing procedures. Build in a section on frequently asked questions that can be easily developed from questions asked by members or your organization. Considering complimenting your manual with videos to make learning easy.   Report Savings/Accomplishments - Prepare an annual report (at least) detailing savings. Savings report should include details space saved, personnel savings due to converting to a file system that provides more efficient access. Preventative Maintenance
