Productivity and efficiency are key factors for determining the success of your business. Unfortunately, your current information destruction processes may be slowing your organization down. For instance, let’s examine the steps required to destroy a document:
- Remove staples and paper clips from your documents
- Separate your files into easy-to-shred portions
- Hand-feed the paperwork into the shredder
- Empty the shredding receptacle
- Dump the shredded material in a dumpster
This doesn’t even take into account time spent oiling shredding blades, unclogging paper jams or troubleshooting other maintenance issues.
Overall, your staff may spend several hours a month shredding documents, and that’s not a formula that maximizes profitability for your business. Here we highlight the main ways a certified destruction service simplifies your information disposal processes.
Efficient collection and shredding
A certified destruction service lets you cut the cord to your paper shredder. Secure destruction containers are delivered to your business and placed free of charge in “high traffic” areas within your office. This way, your staff can securely dispose of confidential and sensitive paperwork in a matter of seconds. Whether you need a one-time file purge or recurring shredding collection and destruction, a schedule is customized to your unique requirements. Your employees never again have to waste time using a paper shredder; instead, they can focus on generating revenue for your company.
Easy and fast destruction on the fly
It’s easy to ignore old documents and devices cluttering your home and office, especially when you’re short on time. Luckily, a drop off shredding service makes it easy to destroy paperwork and other item containing personal and business data, freeing you from clutter.
With drop off shredding, there’s no need to schedule a pickup or make an appointment. Instead, you drop off your sensitive information and electronic devices when it’s convenient for you. A screened destruction technician accepts your items for destruction and recycling right then and there. There’s no easier or quicker way to securely dispose of your paper records, hard drives and other electronic media.
Quick and reliable proof of destruction
Simplifying your information disposal practices also keeps your company out of legal trouble. During legal proceedings and litigation, your information destruction practices may come into question. Without written documentation, you have no proof that the information in your possession was destroyed. A certified destruction service makes it easy to prove your documents were shredded on time and in a secure and compliant manner by issuing you a Certificate of Destruction each time your information is destroyed.
A simplified information destruction strategy saves you money and helps you keep your sensitive information out of the wrong hands.
