With Compact's lateral filing system, your filing virtually takes care of itself! Your files will be ...
- Impossible to misfile
- Quick and easy to retrieve
- Neat and attractive (no more bulky, dog-eared files!)
Here's how it will make YOUR daily filing tasks easier...
Compact's system is based on colour-coded, durable FOLDERS—have a look at an example of one below...
Notice how it’s so different to the familiar, buff-coloured dog-eared manila file?
Compact’s folder is made of sturdy white laminated board, resistant to damage. It even includes a strong plastic tube clip that lets you easily put in a document or take one out.
Tab file dividers separate information, and each colour represents a different subject—it's easy to file information in the right section and then retrieve it later.
- Employee details—black
- Staff training records—red
- Performance appraisal—buff
- Incident reports—light blue
- Orientation documentation—gray
- Employment contracts—dark blue
- Current practising certificate—green
- Resumes, certificates, references—maroon
Orderly folder CONTENTS … is just the beginning
No matter how handy the folder is, there’s another step to take before order is achieved: storage.
You have 2 choices with Compact's system:
Option 1: Use your existing file cabinets.
Don’t want to throw out your existing filing cabinet? You don’t have to!
Our Compact lateral filing system folders fit easily into your conventional four-drawer hanging-file cabinet.
Use Compact folders in combination with our special plastic-coated drawer supports, and you’ll extract the file you want so effortlessly. (These supports are what we also use when these same files are in a lateral configuration.)
OPTION 2: Invest in our more efficient system and gain floor space.
Compact has primarily designed these folders to be filed laterally in our purpose-built cabinets. With a range of sizes and styles choose from, we'll have the right cabinet for your office.
Here are just 3 of the benefits of choosing a lateral filing cabinet from Compact:
- Best possible use of your floor space. This option can save up to 75% of the floor space your current system occupies.
- More than one person at a time can get at them. Lateral storage opens up the display of the folders
- Instantly identify the file you need. You colour-code each folder with a bright Mylar end-tab
