The Benefits Of Using Document Shredding Specialists

Document shredding specialists can come to your premises, collect your waste paper and recycle it in the back of their mobile shredding van. This enables you to protect your business data as well as the data of your employees and of your customers.

Data is a vital commodity in the modern business world, and so too is security. With so much data still kept on paper, despite the promises of a paperless office, it has become even more important that we find reliable and inexpensive ways of disposing of this data securely and safely.

Secure Shredding

There are a number of options when it comes to getting rid of waste paper but few offer the level of security or the convenience of using document shredding specialists.

Shredding your own paper means buying a good quality paper shredder and maintaining it. It also means that somebody within your organisation will have to be tasked with the repetitive job of collecting paper and then shredding it. This still leaves the problem of what to do with the paper once it is shredded.

Leaving paper out for recycling is not an option because this is the least secure alternative while burning paper is bad for the environment. You can avoid all of these potential problems by using mobile document shredding specialists.

Ensuring Business Security

One of the key benefits of secure document shredding is that it is highly secure. Most business print out information regarding their own company including mission sensitive data, accounts information, and more.

Using document shredding specialists means that you can ensure that all of this information is properly destroyed once it has been used. A mobile document shredder will even come to your premises to collect your paper and shred it while you watch.

Ensuring The Security Of Employees

Employee data is also extremely sensitive and your employees will appreciate that you dispose of it properly and securely. Such information can include personal details, bank account details, and details of their employment and this is all highly sought after by identity and data thieves.

Document shredding companies use cross hatch shredding rather than straight or horizontal cut. This means that the paper is cut both horizontally and vertically and ends up looking like confetti. This makes it impossible to reconstruct, whereas a single cutting method can be pieced back together, even if the process is a slow one.

Protecting Customer Data

Protecting the data that belongs to your customers should be one of your biggest priorities. Losing customer data not only leaves you embarrassed but it can permanently damage your reputation with existing and potential clients alike. While it is necessary to store data about your customers and clients, it is equally necessary to carefully and properly dispose of this data too.

Document shredding is an environmentally friendly way of disposing of paper. Document shredding specialists will shred your paper before taking it away for recycling. You don’t have to worry about what to do with the paper once it has been shredded which makes it a convenient option for you.

Convenient And Cost Effective

The convenience of using document shredding specialists means that you do not have to shred paperwork yourself. This process involves the purchasing of an industrial grade shredder and the employment of somebody to perform this task on a regular basis. The shredder itself will cost a considerable amount if you purchase one that offers the level of security that you require.

Document shredding is also a cost effective solution. You can call to have your paper collected once you have reached a certain amount or you can arrange for regular collections according to your exact requirements.
