Traditional suspended pocket filing is the most inefficient way of storing documentation. The suspended file pocket, by design, is estimated to waste between 15 - 20% of valuable storage space within the system. Furthermore, it has a tendency to split which results in misfiling/lost files.
File Indexes in a hand-written or text-printed format can be difficult to read thus enhancing the opportunity for slow retrieval and misfiling.
Standard A4 format filing reduces filing and retrieval times and misfiling is a common occurrence purely because another folder hides a records index.
By simply employing a colour coded indexing filing system, these inherent filing problems can be overcome.
