We’ve all misplaced files, for various reasons, the most common being lack of time in ensuring it’s put back correctly in the filing system. The problem is that a file only becomes important when it can’t be found.

Traditional file folders and indexing systems, whilst suitable for small volumes of files, when used in high density mobile filing systems, multiply misfiling and filing errors many, many times. Searching through your high density office filing systems for that one lost record costs your organisation a great deal of time and money, plus much, much more. The secret is to reduce and eliminate filing errors before they happen.

Implementing colour coded filing solutions couldn’t be simpler. Bisley will guide you through and design your labels with you. Should you choose, Bisley can also print and apply your colour coded labels to your existing file folders or new end tab file folders. Additional and ongoing labels can be generated with the Labels AnyWhere printing software.

- Reduce filing and retrieval times by over 40%.
