If you’ve not yet considered on-site shredding for your business, there are a range of benefits to it that a growing number of companies are now taking advantage of. There are the obvious things such as data protection that benefit from on-site shredding services. Here are some considerations to make when choosing the right solution for your business:
Brand damage and legal implications
Companies failing to comply with data protection laws can face severe legal implications including financial penalties and compensation. Brand damage can be irreversible in some cases, so it’s important to avoid these issues and look at shredding options to suit your business.
Fast and convenient document destruction
Despite all of the shredding options, ultimately providing the same outcome, on-site shredding provides a faster, more secure and more convenient solution. Instead of in-house shredding, or off-site alternatives, on-site shredding provides a secure destruction service that can take place on your premises. This allows your company to supervise the process should you wish to do so, whilst freeing up time and resources in house that would otherwise be wasted on completing the time-consuming task of important set shredding.
Guaranteed secure shredding
Outsourcing your shredding to a specialist shredding company can improve your overall document security. Shred-on-Site use specialised shredding vehicles during the shredding process, and present our customers with certificates of destruction as a guarantee that the process has been carried out to a sufficiently secure level. This documentation is also a demonstration of legal compliance, should it ever be required.
Customers can have peace of mind knowing that their security needs are taken care of, with on-site shredding offering an even more secure method than offsite, since the documents are already shredded onsite before they could get intercepted in between collection and the recycling process.
Customisation and resource allocation
We have already mentioned that on-site shredding can give a level of control back to customers by freeing up staff time which was previously carrying out shredding duties, and resources being allocated more effectively. In addition to this, your on-site shredding experience can be customised to suit the number of collections required, and a collection day or date allocated on a regular or one-off basis to suit your requirements.
