Business owners are always looking for ways to cut costs and maximize profits. You always want you business to be running as smoothly and efficiently as possible, so finding ways to save money is always beneficial. With that in mind, did you know that hiring a professional company to handle your document shredding can actually save you money in the long run? While in-house shredding may seem like a money-saving plan, it’s likely not saving you as much as you think. Check out these three ways Shred Monkey can actually add value to your business this year.
1. Maximize Staff Resources
If you are currently shredding in-house, who on your staff is responsible for that task? Did you hire them specifically to safely destroy company records and are they trained to know how to do it without putting your company at risk? If not, your staff is likely wasting valuable resources by using their time shredding instead of performing their main job. While this may seem like a small problem, over time this added task can take a toll on their performance and your revenue. Additionally, because they are not trained in document destruction, you are leaving your company vulnerable to mistakes and security risks.
2. Organization = Efficiency
The fact is that company documents have to go somewhere, so if you aren’t shredding, they are likely taking up valuable space in your office. Shredding offers a great way to get rid of old filing cabinets and repurpose document storage areas with workstations or other, more valuable storage. This creates a more organized and efficient office space and allows your staff to focus on customer satisfaction.
3. Reliable Shredding
Finally, while buying a consumer grade shredder for $100 may seem like a bargain, it’s not as reliable as it sounds. If you shred consistently, you will find that the cost of labor and maintenance will quickly add up and rival that of working with a professional shredding service. Plus, as we mentioned before, when you do your shredding in-house, you aren’t guaranteed any kind of security. This can can open you up to lawsuits, which is definitely not a good way to save money!
