Our colour-coded end tab filing & labeling systems, high quality filing products including expansion pockets, pressboard classification folders, coloured folders, manila folders, well file folders, fully integrated content management software solutions, colour coding labeling solutions (matching many different tab filing brands) and shelving/storage equipment can be found in file rooms throughout Edmonton, Alberta and across Canada.
Through the use of color coding labels, colors are used to represent the first 3 letters of a name, the digits of a number, or a date. The colors form bands which enable you to see at a glance where a particular file is in the system.
Misfiles Virtually Eliminated
If a folder is misfiled, it immediately stands out because it breaks the color sequence. For example, if a file starting with a red "A" was filed in the green "B" section, the color break would be obvious. If, however, the misfile is not noticed right away, the missing folder can be easily found by looking at the system for a color break. Even from a distance!
Reduced Retrieval Time
Studies show that retrieval time is reduced from an average of 55 seconds to only 14 seconds through the use of color coding labels! That is a 75 drop! Combine this with the fact that over 75 of the cost of an average filing system is people related costs and it doesn't take long to realize a substantial return on investment.
