Active File Management
If your business requires access to files and documents on a frequent basis, Blue-Pencil can set up an Active File Management program with you. Frequently accessed files are stored either on an open shelf or box, in a designated area, where it makes information access almost instant. Our team of professionals will perform a thorough assessment of your business processes and information management, define a strategy and develop a customized active file solution. Once that is complete, all files and/or documents are indexed and coded to make retrieval and re-filing efficient and easy.
With Active File Management program, you can have the peace of mind that your records will not be misplaced, be exposed to unauthorized access or uncomfortable delays trying to access them. The end result is reduced cost and response time.
