Mobile Document Destruction is proving incredibly popular with businesses as an alternative to handling their own document shredding or recycling in house, or shipping out used paper and documents to service providers around the country, or even abroad. For those who haven’t yet considered signing up for this service and remain unconvinced as to whether or not it is really worth it, here are some of the advantages of using mobile document destruction, as compared to trying to handle it yourself.
It’s very cost effective. Untold numbers of staff hours can be wasted trying to deal with and dispose of sensitive documents. Whether you have the resources to specifically employ someone to handle the task, or it has to be juggled by staff in other roles, there’s no doubt that most of their time would be better spent on tasks that are more focused on the business itself.
It can help fulfill legal requirements. These are the increased protections that have come into play with respect to protecting the confidential data of clients and customers. The only really ‘safe’ way to dispose of paper copies of records and communications that could contain personal information is to opt to have those records professionally disposed of.
It’s mobile. This is a huge advantage in terms of saving time, streamlining internal administration processes and ensuring that there is no opportunity for documents to slip through the net and fall into the wrong hands. The disposal service arrives at the business client’s address, retrieves the documents from wherever they are stored and disposes of them on site, without any need to consider postage, packaging, paying for document removal or concerns about the reliability of anyone transporting the documents from A to B.
It can help a business go green. For those businesses that have simply been throwing away reams of paper over the years this type of document disposal is a far greener option. Once the documents have been shredded they can they be taken away and recycled so that nothing is wasted, no matter how much paper waste has been produced.
It offers complete peace of mind. There are numerous threats to the security and profitability of a business these days, from stolen industrial secrets to employees leaking confidential internal manuals and policies - controlling the documents that leave via the waste disposal is one step towards putting the power back in the hands of the business. Business identity theft in particular is a huge risk for those companies that don’t safely dispose of filings and records information, or emails that could contain sensitive passwords and codes. However, thanks to the strict procedures followed by mobile document destruction operators, opting for this professional service offers complete peace of mind.
These are just some of the advantages of using a mobile document disposal service. Whether your business needs the security of ensuring that sensitive information is being properly destroyed, or is simply looking to reduce outlay on administrative processes, this is a great option for businesses of all sizes.
