It is becoming more and more common for businesses to choose to have sensitive pieces of information destroyed on-site. This is usually done via on-site shredding companies, when the documents are no longer of use. As the name suggests, on-site shredding is done on the companies premises, where the process can be overseen by staff from start to finish.
By having a shredding company handle all of your business’ confidential and non-confidential documents, you can make sure that your business is in compliance with UK legislation. According to UK legislation concerning confidential information, businesses have a legal obligation to destroy all documents when they are no longer in use. Here are three benefits of on-site shredding:
It Is Convenient
By using an on-site shredding service provider such as Shred-On-Site, your business is afforded the choice of when the shredding company comes to shred the documents. Either on a frequent, weekly or monthly basis as a regular shredding service, or even as a one off paper shredding service. Shred-on-Site provide a range of storage facilities such as lockable veneered consoles, sacks and secure wheelie bins for the days in between shredding. This means that all of your documents never leave your premises until the total shredding is complete.
It Saves Time
Time can be just as valuable as money, and by having your business’ documents shredded, on-site by an outsourced and trusted paper shredding service provider, you save both time and money. The paper shredding process is done quickly and easily on your premises and can be overseen by yourself or any member of staff. This method also saves you the time and hassle of having to load all of your documents into your own shredder daily, by just destroying it all at once. Furthermore, any delays due to phone calls or breaks, in order to let the shredder cool down, are eliminated thanks to our industrial shredding vehicles.
These time-saving benefits will make a significant impact on your day-to-day business activities, as the time you save will be freed up, allowing it to be spent on more important areas of the business, such as growth and customer relations.
It Is Secure
By shredding your business’ documents on-site, your level of security is largely increased. This is due to the fact that by keeping all of your documents on the premises, the risk of them not being kept confidential is dramatically lowered.
Shred-On-Site also offers added security with our mobile shredding services as we provide secure paper shredding receptacles that store the documents before their disposal and are protected by lock and key. This means that the documents aren’t accessible once they are inside.
